Our Brooklyn Food Program Is Now 100% Vegan
In 2015 we launched as a destination in Brooklyn, with a vegetarian menu for a few reasons, the most important being the affect the restaurant industry has on the environment and what we could do to lessen our foot-print on that path. Of course it's "cheaper" in some ways to run a veggie kitchen it also means scaring off die-hard carnivores. Still, we believe it's nice to stand out and instead of offering junk food options within a plant-based menu we really let the vegetables be the stars of the show.
Last month we converted the menu to 100% Vegan. It seemed like a natural step in the direction we were going and that we could provide a better service to our customer by cutting out any dairy or other animal-products. So far it's been a great success and with that change we rolled out a few new menu items. We won't list them all but here are a few.
Roasted fingerling potatoes, watermelon radish, parsnips, yams, and crispy arepa croutons topped with achiote sauce; garnished
with a salad of baby kale, artichoke hearts, and chick peas in a citrus vinaigrette (GF)
Twice fried green plantains with garlic chimichurri and cilantro aioli (GF)
