Obviously when you’re cooking for yourself, it’s easy to control what’s on your plate. But what can be trickier, is finding satisfying vegan options at restaurants. Vegan cafés are often heavily lacking in atmosphere, and occasionally the food itself is just as lackluster. Thankfully, there’s Blossom – a local, mini chain of 4 restaurants in NYC that gives vegans a place to indulge in delicious eats, without sacrificing food quality or experience. Blossom’s menu renounces all animal products in favor of organic, plant-based dishes that source their ingredients locally and from small farms and distribution companies. And guess what…? They’re actually DELICIOUS!
