I did a sparkling vegetable broth, served cold in the summer. It was baby carrots, peas, all kinds of vegetables, and I put it in a seltzer bottle. The vegetables were bobbing up and down because of the carbonation... everything was moving. After a couple of weeks, I took it off the menu. It sounded cool at the time, but nobody liked it, except me." [Manhattan][Photo]
