The Vegetarian Option: Comfort Food at Penelope in Murray Hill Leaves Something to Be Desired

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman 1 comment

Penelope, Murray Hill's comfort food fixture, offers an approachable, all-are-welcome vibe, as well as many vegetarian-friendly dishes. But until the restaurant significantly ups its standards, the area's nearby vegetarian Indian restaurants make much worthier destinations for a meatless meal. More

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman Post a comment

The Vegetarian Option: Dependable Middle Eastern at Waterfalls Café in Cobble Hill

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman 1 comment

My favorite kind of restaurant is the neighborhood restaurant: a place right down the street that's short on frills but long on coziness, serves down-home but excellent food at fair prices, and where the quality never seems to suffer no matter how many decades old the restaurant is. Waterfalls Café is that kind of restaurant. More

The Vegetarian Option: Excellent Sichuan Options at Café China

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman 2 comments

Cafe China is one of the city's better options for updated Sichuan food, as we discovered when we visited last year. In that review, we focused mainly on the restaurant's excellent meat dishes; here we see that the vegetarian dishes are just as good. More

The Vegetarian Option: Chennai Garden Still Serves Excellent Indian Fare

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman Post a comment

There are some New York restaurants that stand the test of time: places that, no matter what trends storm the city—and then, inevitably, retreat—make excellent food, and stay true to their style no matter what the times dictate. Chennai Garden, the vegetarian Indian restaurant on Manhattan's Curry Hill, is one of those spots. More

The Vegetarian Option: La Mujer Gala, Bringing Tapas to Prospect Heights

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman Post a comment

In a case of rapid New York City restaurant turnover, the space that once was Aliseo Osteria Del Borgo, the Italian spot on Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights, is now La Mujer Gala, a tapas and small plates restaurant that leans more heavily on true, Spanish-style tapas than on the generic small (but typically expensive) plates offered all over town these days. Though a meal here has some pleasures, the menu needs some work. More

Hangawi isn't the place for an everyday meal, to be sure, but as an occasional destination, it's a transporting treat, and one of the best places to eat in K-Town. Totally vegan to boot. More
