I’ve written about Elaine’s Healthy Choice before, as it was one of my favorite places when I lived in New Haven. I knew I would be driving through New Haven when heading to Cape Cod for a visit with my mom and a conference last week, so I planned my trip so that I’d be there around lunch time, and stop at Elaine’s.
Just so you know how friendly these people are: as soon as I walked in, Elaine recognized me and remembered that I had moved to New York. I love going here! I’m pretty sure that if her husband had been at the counter, he would have known immediately what I was going to order, too.
Vegan Mac & Cheese it was! It’s my favorite, though I’ve never been disappointed with any of the other food I’ve had there. I got the full sized, but you can also swap the rice and beans that comes with anything else for the mac & cheese as a side dish.
This was the first time that I had eaten in the restaurant, as the whole time I lived in New Haven I had an apartment right around the corner. It looked like they’ve added another table, too. Though it’s primarily take-out, there’s definitely room for a few people to eat-in.
I don’t think I can say it enough- if you’re in New Haven, give this place a shot. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
