Seriously, stay in Brooklyn. There's so much good stuff over there, and I feel like tons of people write it off in order to stay in *jazz hands* MANHATTAN *jazz hands*. It really doesn't take that much effort to get into the city from Brooklyn.

Champs does breakfast on the daily, which is basically there brunch fare (as I understand it).

Sweet! Yeah, I might stay in Brooklyn depending on the rates. I just want proximity to awesomeness.

I'll be staying in the lower east side. Any tips for yummy stuff near there in case I'm feeling lazy? I'm searching Yelp and found a place called Pala selling pizza that reviewers say has a full vegan menu in addition to its regular menu. That could be interesting.


Pala's pizza is delicious! They do have a full vegan menu, and the place is a nice, sit down restaurant. Babycakes is on the LES, although I think their baked goods are pretty meh. Lulas is LES as well. There's also atlas, but they're not so great and I think I saw a post that they're closing?
There is an italian place called john's of 12th street that has a full vegan menu, they are pretty good and provide an old-school-italian-place-in-ny experience.


The all the time menu at champs has all the brunch/breakfast items on it, so you can get their "brunch" food at 11 on a saturday morning, or 9pm on a tuesday.
Stay in Brooklyn for the second part of your stay! You can find something on air b&b or homeaway no problem I'm sure. You won't have a problem getting into Manhattan to do/see whatever you'd like.

Zen Palate - sadly, the very central union sq location closed a long time ago, but there is another one up in the 40s, around the theater district.

there is a Zen Palate in that neighborhood again - it opened on 18th st between Park Av & Irving Pl a few years ago. they have some good stuff, but i wouldn't say it's essential dining, especially with so many other amazing options around.

I'll be going to NYC soon and on my definite revisit list is Red Bamboo, Beyond Sushi, Cinnamon Snail, John's of 12th Street, Dirt Candy, the Blossoms and the Candles.

My friend wants to find good bagels, anywhere worth trying in midtown or downtown?

And has anywhere new opened in the past 6 months? I'm really missing Supervegan for all the latest info.

I think you mentioned in another thread that you might be here at the end of April? If you're around go to the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale at Mooshoes - its so nice to be around other vegans. And definitely set up a PPK meet-up - it would be great to meet you!

Dude. I totally wish I was going to be in NYC at the end of April, but I'll actually be in London at that time. Another awesome food city, but not close enough for a meet up with you! :(

I was responding to Rentaghost :) When you're here, you should totally do a meet-up too!

But we should totally do a meet-up when you're here! I feel like I've followed your story for such a long time, and it would be lovely to meet you and your love.

The Moo Shoes bake sale is already in my diary Tofulish! Are you going to be there!

My friend and I are also excited that the next NY Vegan Drinks falls during our trip! Does anyone else from PPK ever go?

And does anyone know if Atlas Cafe has reopened?

I would be so honored to meet up with some NY PPKers while I'm there. Once we get closer, we should see who's interested.

Thanks for starting this thread, pickledtreats. It's been really helpful to my planning!

Does anyone have recommendations for soul food or Latin food? I'll be based in LES but I'm willing to travel for these. My main goal in NYC is to eat all the foods, so I can work my other plans around that.

Seasoned Vegan in Harlem seems to be open now.

for Latin food, there's V-Spot in Brooklyn, which i've heard mixed things about. there's also a Mexican place not far from Houston St (i think) with some vegan-friendly options, but the name is escaping me.
ETA: there's Mexican Radio in that general area, but i'm not 100% sure that's the one i'm thinking of.

i used to love Benny's Burritos pre-vegan, and have heard that they now have vegan cheese and other options (and they have always been pretty customizable) but i also know that the different locations have different owners and i would investigate to find out if one is better than the other vegan-wise, i didn't make it there when i was in NY.

(ps the moo shoes bake sale i went to a few years ago was great!)
