Spending a month in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio for Thanksgiving and Christmas was awesome! While I was there, I got to see some friends and family. Catching up with them meant I had lots of lunch and brunch dates at Park + Vine and Melt Eclectic Cafe – two of my favorite places in Cincy for vegan eats. I also had some tasty vegan dessert. Now, I’m back in NYC, a city with so many vegan restaurants and offerings. It’s one of the best cities in the world! Here is some of the vegan food I’ve had in Brooklyn and Manhattan the past few weeks.
Tanoreen – Brooklyn
This is a gem of a place in Brooklyn. The food from Tanoreen was my last meal before flying to Cincinnati and my first meal upon returning to NYC! My boyfriend took me there for a lunch date on the day I flew back. The restaurant is a great place for dates, but it’s also good for groups, too. Tanoreen serves delicious Middle Eastern food and has received much press attention (rightly so). They serve meat, but Tanoreen is vegetarian and vegan friendly, as well. I love the cauliflower salad and beet hummus.
Whole Foods – Brooklyn
I love shopping at Whole Foods when I’m in NYC since they carry many vegan brands and have fresh, organic produce. This location also has a juice bar! Here is one of my recent grocery hauls from Whole Foods in Brooklyn; it includes Hilary’s Eat Well Veggie Burgers, Amy’s Vegan Mac n’ Cheese, So Delicious Coconut Milk, Soyboy Tempeh, and Food for Life Ezekial 4:9 Organic Sprouted Grain Bread:
Beyond Sushi – The Green Roll – CHelsea Market
After I left a meeting in Chelsea Market last week, I was happy to find Beyond Sushi – The Green Roll among the eateries! Of course I stopped for sushi there. I got the Sweet Tree Roll, which has sweet potato, avocado and sprouts, along with two individual mango pieces. All of the sushi here is vegan! I’ve also been to their sit-down restaurant on 14th street. It’s amazing!
Costco – Brooklyn
I took a trip to Costco a couple weeks ago and was able to find several staples for my vegan diet, like hummus, tabouli salad, chickpea salad, chips, multigrain bread, organic frozen berries, and roasted cashews. Score! Ah, vegan eating is so easy in NYC. It’s great to be back!
