A Day in NYC

I’m plugging along with VeganMoFo, but not as much as I had hoped.  I’ve been sick, sick, sick!

Today I’m offering a little glimpse at local travel- NYC, to be exact.

And while I was writing this earlier, I saw that NYC was named the most vegan-friendly city by  PETA today, so even better I write this, right?

So, NYC.  Yes, I go there often.  I’m 33 minutes away by train- but I don’t go nearly as often as I should.  Back in July, I went to a conference in Manhattan for the day.  Lunch there didn’t look too vegan to me, so I made a quick run out to Blossom DuJour.  I’ve written about this before, but this time was a different location (the one I’ve written about before has moved).

Sandwich, and a salad, because I try to be healthy sometimes.

Isn’t that what you want to see when walking down the street?

This is the thing about Manhattan.  You can stand pretty much anywhere, pull out your smartphone, load up an app like Happy Cow, and find a place to get a good vegan meal in walking distance.  It’s so awesome.

Later, after the conference was over and a very long walk, a trip to Candle 79.  This place is just awesome.  You cannot beat this food anywhere.  Want to eat alone?  Take a seat at the bar and have your meal there.

And an excellent meal it will be.

I know the picture sucks, but this food is sooooooo good...

Onion rings.  Just because.

Does that not look delicious?

Short and sweet tonight- tomorrow I head to the Natural Products Expo East, so prepare for posts from the road!

  1. That sandwich looks amazing! It reminds me of a sandwich I had a while ago here – a mock philly cheese steak thing. American food is taking off big in Australia, and that style of food is popping up everywhere. It came all steaming and wrapped up in foil…mmm…
