Our lunch today since we had to head over to Williamsburg/Greenpoint to get my bike wheel fixed. Buffalo chicken slice and a black bean/ground beef slice aaand a peanut butter bomb from Vinnie's...aaaaannd I stopped at Verb for a soy latte since we were at the record shop next door. I wish they had some plain vegan slices, or something with just veggies and no cheese, I love tomato sauce so i love classic slices that aren't overloaded...but it's always good regardless. I also wish we got the chocolate cake donut, try out the donuts instead of the pb bomb.

These things are good: Thai pancakes, a ride on a Harley, seeing monkeys on a tree, tofu meatballs baguette, and the sun shining on my face. These things are a drag: dust on my hair, Quintessence, no money in my pocket, and the sun shining on my face.

Just wanted to thank you all for your help! We are having so much fun! Will be at Melisser's book signing tomorrow at Mooshoes so if any of you are going, please say hi. I'll be carrying the Donut Cooperative tote. :)

I know you've come and gone by now, but Zen Vegetarian House is really really great. Asian food, Flatbush Ave (near the SW corner of Prospect Park), both vegetarian & vegan options. I actually have a (poor) quality picture of one order:
Pineapple-Cucumber-Apple juice, Strawberry-Banana smoothie, Eggplant in (Garlic or) Chili Sauce (amaaaazing)

I've also had their:
Sugar Cane Drumsticks (breaded soy protein & fresh herbs wrapped around raw sugar cane)
Chicken with Broccoli
Beef Teryaki

ah I used to live right there, Zen was on my corner. It ruled so hard to have that place just downstairs, but then people started getting shot in front of our building and we moved.

haha no way, I lived at 32 Lenox for about a year and a half. Really nice building, great super...but the dudes hanging out outside being loud as hell everrrrrrry night followed by 2 shootings within a month (one of 'em a driveby at 7pm!!) shortly after our daughter was born made us move into a friend's house on the other side of Brooklyn (Ridgewood). I still miss Prospect Park and some stuff though.
woops, sorry thread hijack is now over!

I really have to give a shout-out to Babycakes NYC. From the hype I heard that I could skip it and be ok with it. I'm sooo glad I didn't skip it (three times).

I'll back this up too! Pukk is SO good, seriously I still get cravings for the food from there & it's been over 1 1/2 years since I was in NYC!

crepe! I've been meaning to try this place for the past month and half because it's not far from the hospital. Instead I go home hungry. I lose.

That makes me so sad. They were so nice. But they were just outside the general Curry Hill area, so just close enough to be in competition with places like Chennai Gardens that are much cheaper but just far enough to not get walk-by-Indian-food-seeking-foot-traffic.

Bump -- I'm coming to town for 5 days in 3 weeks for D-Plan at Webster, haven't been in a long while, so I kind of have the same query as the OP. Has anything totally amazing opened in the past year or so?

I already have much love for Red Bamboo and Foodswings, but I'd love to branch out (albeit somewhat inexpensively; Kajitsu and Blossom are out, sad face).
I really did not like the food at V-Spot or Wild Ginger, but I'm willing to give either another go if need be. Kate's has been 'meh' to me every time I've been (prolly half a dozen? geesh). Seems like Pukk may be the place to go first -- $6 lunch, for real!?!?! And then Lula's for dessert? Govinda's and Vinnie's Pizza look promising, too.

I'll be staying in Carroll Gardens and usually don't venture outside of the part of Brooklyn that's kinda between downtown and Prospect Park (W'burg to the north, Park Slope to the south) whenever I'm in town, if that helps pinpoint someplace in particular, but I'm happy to trek into Manhattan for tasty eats.

My favorite NYC restaurant -- tiny, delicious Radha -- closed a long while back and I have been looking for something to replace it ever since. However, since my friends in New York recoil at the word "vegan," I have no personalized recommendations. Help, PPK!

'Snice is pretty convenient to that area, tasty, quick and relatively inexpensive.

I'm living in Carroll Gardens right now, so if you find something awesome, please post about it!

My friend used to live around the corner! I would go here when I visited. I loved the sugar cane drumsticks and banana chicken fingers.

I just remembered Vegetarian Ginger, which is just north of you, for Chinese. Most people I know (especially omnis) love it.

Thanks for the recommendations! Assuming my flight doesn't get canceled or delayed past dinnertime (scheduled to land at 4:30), I'll be taking two omni friends to Vegetarian Ginger tomorrow night. Yay!

Carroll Gardens update: apparently Naidre's, which was a veg-friendly cafe on Henry and Sackett, has closed and been replaced with Maybelle's Cafe, which Grub Street refers to as "a 30-seat café with a vegetarian-vegan focus." Huzzah!

It's a block away from where I'm staying! Drop me a PM if you want to grab some food on Friday during the day! The friend I'm staying with will be at work and I will be wandering around in search of sandwiches.
