I didn't realize nyc had a loving hut now. I like the loving hut out here but I'd probably replace it with pukk or (more likely) lan.

hey guys! i'll be in nyc this coming sunday night - wed morning. our hotel is in the grammery park area...and these are the restaurants i've found that are possibily worth going to there:
franchia
pure food & wine
zen palate (in case of emergency...i've eaten there before and it was just ok)
also, little india isn't too far away and i figure i could find something there if need be?

these are the other places i have on my itinerary...'*' is for a place a really want to try:
blossom (been here already, might go for lunch to avoid priciness)
terri*
slice*
saigon 48 (been here before also, pretty decent vietnamese food)
lula's*
pukk*
counter (bar foods?)
red bamboo*

i'd like to try places i haven't been before... wild ginger was awesome, and perhaps i'll try there again. we won't be venturing into brooklyn, unfortunately, so please don't suggest anything there if you have suggestions!

i'm going to go ahead and add lan cafe to that list, but since it's so near to pukk it will really depend on which type of cuisine i'm in the mood for at the moment.

Loving Hut? The same Loving Hut that's operated by people who follow the supreme master? There's one of those in Orlando.

All I can gather is that it's some sort of vegan cult. You can't have a leader called the supreme master without being a cult.

It breaks my heart when people say that.

My cousin lives in the city and she's never actually been to Brooklyn. She's been living in New York for about two years...

allularpunk, I'd probably skip Zen Palate unless I was desperate, but you're also not far from Angelica Kitchen (which I love) and John's, the Italian place with the new vegan menu (I haven't tried yet).

i want to go! i'm going with my aunt, who is most interested in seeing the museums and whatnot and she can't read maps, so manhattan alone is going to be ...fun... to navigate by itself. does it take much longer to trek to brooklyn? i'm just afraid it's out of the way, especially only going for 2 full days...since most of our time will be spent in the moma and the met. thoughts?

Well, then. That just means you'll have to plan another trip JUST for Brooklyn, because Brooklyn feels totally left out. Don't you, Brooklyn?

They make a killer vegan flan.

The first/only time I was there was when I still lived in FL. I bought a ton of shiitake to go and ate all during the drive back up to Jacksonville.

the only reason zen palate is on my itinerary again is because it's open til 11:15 and i'm afraid it will be the only place i can eat when my train gets there at 9:30 (after i drop my stuff off at the hotel). i had forgotten about wanting to try angelica kitchen the last time i was there, though! and thanks for an italian suggestion because my aunt might want some pasta after all the vegan places i drag her.

Yogi's Kitchen, on Lexington between 31st and 32nd is your best bet. Most of the restaurants along that strip, even the vegetarian ones, aren't particularly vegan friendly. And Yogi's Kitchen also happens to be really good.

When we went there I put so much on my plate AND I got a bowl of salad. I felt so bad, I couldn't eat it all, I got to the point where I would have puked if I put one more thing in my mouth.....except for the ice cream, i had to try their ice cream. Eating there was the first time I ever had millet and gravy and I actually really liked it, I was shocked.

We biked there, so sleeping on the train wasn't an option, and we were like practically rolling out of the place so before we hopped back on our bikes we walked around the gorgeous cemetery across the street and read a bunch of gravestones and watched all the birdies, it was such a gorgeous day, this was probably back in August.

i'm confused by their online menu...they have the little milk jug icon for dishes that contain dairy, but then it won't be beside a dish that clearly states that it has butter or cream in it. are they helpful once inside about what is vegan?

It's probably another place you want to go to for lunch, and be sure to get the appetizer plate. They have the best idli in the known universe.

I've never ordered through their site, I use Seamlessweb, which seems to be clear. And they're pretty helpful in person.
