I just spent some time in NYC for the first time in a long time and I just wanted to highlight a few spots that I love to eat at in NYC, this is by no means a full guide but thought I would share places that I like. Most of the time I find the best gluten free and vegan friendly food in the lower east side. People rave about all sorts of places like Candle 79 but I find it to be a little like vegan food from the 90’s. So give these a try.
Blank Café- Williamsburg, this is a coffee shop that has some of the best vegan curry ever for $6.50, that’s right it’s cheap but soooo good! This place is worth going out of your way for. Best place I have ever eaten at in NYC.
(p.s. don't eat the brownie it's not gluten free or vegan)
Caravan of Dreams-Lower East Side, you might just find someone serenading you at the piano inside this gypsy fused restaurant. A huge menu and I love the chocolate smoothies!
Play Lounge-near Madison Square Park, this is a really great new hip spot for drinks. Few know about it so it’s not crowded and it’s a great place to meet people. They make one of the best drinks I have ever had “The Rosebud”, perfect notes of rose with a little sweetness.
