Another chain that offers fresh, seasonal dishes, The Little Beet offers a selection of bowls with the option of creating your own from an extensive list of ingredients. They also have a breakfast menu with an oatmeal option suitable for vegans. Taim, which in Hebrew means “tasty”, is a fully vegetarian quick-service falafel restaurant with 5 locations in Manhattan. In addition to their famous falafel, they also serve salads, shawarma and clever milkshakes.
At all 3 locations in Manhattan, Bite offers an extensive menu of Middle Eastern-inspired dishes, sandwiches and salads in a casual setting that's perfect for any diet, with a variety of vegan and gluten-free options. With all of these concepts unified under one roof, the new location in downtown New York, its 35th outpost to date, is a true mecca of vegan food for busy New Yorkers. Anna Starostinetskaya is the senior news editor of VegNews and is always aware of everything related to vegan food in her hometown of San Francisco, California, and everywhere else. At its new location, the chain will serve a wide variety of plant-based dishes from its four existing establishments, including Veggie Grill, More Veggies, Stand-Up Burgers and Vegan Bowls for All.
For the first time, these concepts will be available under one roof. One of the most popular restaurant chains in the world, Chipotle's customizable format makes being vegan easy anywhere. Burger (impossible burger with Miyoko's creamy Cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and special sauce on a vegan brioche bun) and Save the Animal style fries (a vegan version of the famous In-n-Out fries) with special sauce and roasted onions. This week, the vegan fast-casual food chain Veggie Grill will open its second branch in New York City, in the midtown Manhattan neighborhood.
After 16 years of operating the concept of fast and informal vegan food, Pillán has witnessed the growth of plant-based options in major metropolitan cities, but says that some regions are just beginning to join. The chain is also launching a franchise program to further expand its reach with like-minded partners in cities such as New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Miami, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Denver, Salt Lake City, Phoenix and Albuquerque.
