While some of us do like the bitter taste of a fresh-pressed green juice, the vast majority would rather stick to their burger and fries than suffer through a wheat grass shot. What if we said there was a way to make healthy fun? Well, sit tight and continue reading!
By CHLOE. is a popular little vegan restaurant located on the corner of Bleecker and Macdougal in Greenwich Village. When we say popular, we mean popular. We headed over on a Thursday night only to find a surge of women, and some men, feasting on veggie burgers, air baked fries, and a variety of delicious looking salads. We were able to order fairly quickly, and secured a seat to wait until our buzzer notified our meal was ready. Although we felt the beady hawk eyes of hungry customers scavenging for seats upon us, we were able to enjoy a quick meal of Quinoa Taco salad, The Classic Burger, Mac n’ Cheese, and their special Oh So Fancy Fries (pictured), which is a special hidden menu item. Our personal favorites were the Quinoa Taco salad and needless to say, the Oh So Fancy Fries. When it comes to vegan food, we believe that seasoning is key, and these two dishes were seasoned to perfection. The mock taco “meat” in the salad, which consists of spicy seitan chorizo, was bursting with flavor, and their tangy agave-lime dressing mixed with fresh romaine leaves was just delectable. The fries came with the same mock taco meat, a sprinkle of fresh parsley, and a drizzle of chipotle mayo, which of course is void of dairy. All this makes us want to go back for more, despite the long lines and chaotic seating arrangements. But, great news, by CHLOE. is opening two brand new locations in Flatiron and Soho. We also recommend stopping by in the warmer months and ordering to-go so you can skip the musical chairs and enjoy a yummy lunch in the park.
