Hola mes amis.
It was a beautiful long weekend here in NYC. I’m dreaming of warmer weather, but know that once the summer heat hits, I’ll be dreaming of fall.
I went here yesterday with some friends for lunch, and we all LOVED it. I feel like a lot of trendy veggie-focused casual restaurants are popping up. A couple years ago there was basically Liquiteria for the juicing scene and that was it. Now, if you don’t offer a kale salad you’re so behind the times. As long as they don’t charge me too much for my avocado toast, I’m on board.
For Anna and Blake, a list below of my favorite veggie/vegan/raw places to dine out on the town:
Casual, pick-up and to-go friendly:
The Butchers Daughter – goddess of green juice, egg sandwich platter
Souen – macro plate please and homemade corn bread
Angelica Kitchen – so many options and must get Mu tea
Hu Kitchen – curried sweet potatoes, any of their vegan crackers they always have out to sample and mash bowls – I love popping in to pick something up on the weekends after Sunday yoga, great wifi and people watching too!
Candle Cafe – For those uptown in need of a vegan fix.
Mulberry and Vine – cauliflower, brussel sprouts, avocado toast on the weekend (TriBeCa represent!!)
Dimes – Amazing veggie bowls, but super small so don’t plan going with a big group
Whynot Coffee & Wine – vegan cookies
Restaurants (more so farm to table vs. health focus, veggies still in the spotlight):
Wild – great for groups, big salads and yummy gluten free pizzas
ABC Kitchen – kabocha squash tartine and ice cream sundae!!!
The Fat Radish – avocado toast with poached eggs
Pure Food and Wine – vegan lasagna and mint sundae please
Dying to try – Narcissa – has anyone been?!
Rockin’ Raw, Spring Street Natural, Candle 79
Anyone who wants to go get almond milk lattes and discuss life over fresh veggie juice lemme know.
For those of you who want to go eat cheese, drink red wine and eat dark chocolate – well you’re already on speed dial…
Here’s to a happy and healthy week.
