Top 3 NYC Vegan Restaurants That Even Your Meat Eating Friends Will Love
Is it just a New York thing or does it seem like more people are saying so long to meat and hello to the veggies? This current food craze is causing several vegan restaurants to pop up all over the place and causing people to abandon the usual burger joints and opt for something like a soy burger served on a flax seed bun. However, there are still folks out there who just aren’t quite ready to trade in the t-bone for a stuffed avocado. And while the vegan life isn’t for everyone these NYC based vegan restaurants are sure to make you reconsider eating that 3-piece from the chicken shack.
