My friend went to SXSW and feasted on BBQ all the time, but now I want him to be able to come to NY again and feast on something good and delicious, if not healthy, and of course, vegan. What do you guys think? Red Bamboo was my first guess but I kind of want something with ambience that isn't there. I'll go wherever the most hands raised places me, ha.

RB sounds like a good bet if you're looking for fried mock-meats. I'd also suggest Soy and Sake.

I took my omni sister to Candle 79 and she loved it. She even thought her husband who is more of a meat-eater than she is would like it.

I think most of my omni friends prefer restaurants where vegetables get to be vegetables instead of fake meat. They know what meat tastes like, and it just doesn't measure up. The people I eat with most frequently love 'sNice (sandwiches, not at all fancy) and Angelica Kitchen (nicer, but also healthier. Dinner there makes us feel virtuous and is a great excuse to get ice cream at Lula's after since it's not far).

Actually, if you're in that neighborhood (or even if you're not), you should totally get dessert at Lula's after dinner.

So not this week, but next, I may have money to do some of that going out to eat thing I've been hearing alot about. So, I think I'm going to see if maybe he'll want to, and I'm thinking Angelica Kitchen sounds really good, since he's meated out. Plus, it's also seemed really refreshing and clean. They're a little pricey though, but I have a frequent buyer card for Stogos so we can go there after and get some cheap delicious dessert. Thanks for the suggestions!

I wouldn't take anyone I really wanted to wow with vegan desserts to Stogo. Their ice creams are really hit and miss. Some flavors are good, but others are bizarrely icy. Lula's is a win every time.
