New York City’s Most Popular Vegetarian Restaurants

August 29, 2014 5:00 pm

New York City is one of the food capitals of the world, and that title includes its numerous vegetarian restaurants. Life in the Big Apple is quite tasty for its vegetarian population, and these three favorites are just a few of the city’s best meat-free eateries.

This popular chain of vegan restaurants has four locations across Manhattan, and each location features its own unique style. From the intimate, upscale location in Chelsea to the casual dining cafe on the Upper West Side, each Blossom restaurant relies on fresh, organic ingredients to create a healthy and delicious meal free of animal products.

Candle 79
Candle 79 is an elegant, glamorous vegan restaurant that’s ideal for special occasions. Cozy leather booths and modern light fixtures create a romantic atmosphere where diners can enjoy the menu’s organic, meat-free and worldly entrees.

Dirt Candy
Though the name may sound unappetizing, Dirt Candy’s expertly prepared dishes turn vegetables into something much more impressive. Each dish centers around one specific vegetable, and the menu includes items like curried beets, stone ground grits, and smoked broccoli dogs that you truly have to taste to believe. As if that’s not impressive enough, Dirt Candy also offers a number of desserts made with—you guessed it—fresh vegetables!

Don’s Bogam: Grill Your Own Barbecue

August 20, 2014 4:01 pm

Get in on the DIY food trend and head to Don’s Bogam for some grill-your-own Korean barbecue. Many tables are equipped with a grill, and you can choose from a range of marinated beef, chicken, and seafood mains.

Try the house specialty Maeun Galbi — beef short ribs in a spicy sauce. If you don’t want to grill it yourself, chefs in the open kitchen will prepare it to your liking. Those who prefer rice dishes can go for the customer favorite kimchi-bulgogi. All meals come with a nice variety of Banchan side dishes that come out first, but if you must have an appetizer, try the Japchae, a noodle and veggie dish that's made fresh to order. Don’s Bogam stocks a variety of traditional Korean liquors, as well as a nice wine list with many affordable options. Efficient servers are happy to make a recommendation.

Although this restaurant is nestled among many others in a neighborhood known for Korean cuisine, its ambiance stands out. Simple modern Asian decor gives a chic vibe, and platform tables offer unique seating options. Although you sit at floor level, there are cut outs under the table for your legs, as if you were sitting on a legless chair. Getting a table is generally easy, but there are times when the restaurant gets busy. If you are planning an important dinner and want your choice of table, make a reservation.
