For some reason I've found myself there more than other vegan places lately--I think due to geography & economics. Friday night I had their soy meatball hero. I think between my partner and me, we've tried almost all their seitan sandwich offerings and the tempeh reuben which I liked a lot.

the prices aren't fantastic, but for a cozy little meal & the possibility of beer/wine, I think it's a great spot.

what else are people liking there?

I've only had their scramble. It was OK but I LOVED their salad dressing.

I had the olive seitan sandwich there. It was good, very rich and a bit much, but good. My partner got a tofu scramble with biscuits, gravy, and greens. The tofu scramble was meh. Mostly crumbled tofu without much spice or veggies.

It was pretty good. If I'm in the area, I'll eat there again. But it didn't blow my socks off.

I like going there, mostly for the veggies! Whenever they have brussel sprouts they are killer.

yeah my partner had the olive seitan hero with some sort of vegan cheese on it that was indeed very rich. I think they called it chévre? I wonder if they make that there?

Just ate there on the second. I had the biscuits and gravy (and scrambled 'fu and collards - YES) and chocolate-pb shake, my boyfriend had the banana bread french toast and a berry smoothie, my sister's boyfriend had some sort of tempeh hash which I tried and it was delicious, and my sister had everyone else's food.

But yeah, every time I'm in NYC, I make an excuse to go there for brunch.

had their tapas a year and a half ago...i was not impressed by the soba in peanut sauce was cold as icecream and made me ill but i think they have an olive seitan that is very well made and tasty. They introduced me to kale as well and that too was good.
I liked it because it was quiet but at times it was too quiet in comparison to somewhere else like caravan of dreams.

I love Sacred Chow! I love having lunch there - I get the shiitake salad with indian dressing and half a tofu reuben. OMG SO GOOD. With a Sinner Bar for dessert and a cappuchino.

NOMMY NOMMY HAPPY DAY!

I had their hummus sandwich and soba noodles. I thought both were only okay. The service was extremely slow which has held me back from going there again.

I like that they have the Tav HaYosher -- it's a certification for kosher restaurants that certifies that they treat their workers fairly. (And now that I look at the list http://tavhayosher.wordpress.com/, I see that several vegan places have it. Last time I checked, Sacred Chow was the only one, but that was a while ago.)

So, they changed the menu! There is a new dinner menu that doesn't have tapas or sandwiches, but instead 4 or maybe 5 entrees. I believe there were soups and salads/apps, and dessert. The entree prices are in the $18-21 range, making it a little more expensive for a meal. I had the seitan mole, which I was not wild about. My partner had the bip bop tofu something korean, which was very nice.
