The Vandal

The stylish Vandal Restaurant in Lower East Side, part restaurant, part lounge and with a secret garden and a curated “flower shop” at the entrance, has quickly become a favorite.  An street-art-vibe runs through the place with site-specific artist installations and graffit-covered walls.

On the menu you’ll find shareable dishes like lobster and sweet potato soup dumplings, as well as other small plates inspired by European and Asian street food. For drinks, you will have inventive cocktails like the Las Palmitas with Thai spiced Ilegal Mezcal, lemon nectar, Thai basil, and Schöfferhofer grapefruit beer.

In addition to that only slightly terrifying 11ft breakdancing rabbit, the walls are covered with murals and installations from artists like Hush, Apex, and Shepard Fairey, among others.

Cafe Moto Brooklyn

Cafe Moto

Cafe Moto is a hidden gem under the South Williamsburg JMZ (there’s no sign on the door), hosts live jazz at noon every Sunday.  The perfect brunch comes together with some nice live music.

It complements the faux-retro speakeasy vibe–owners John and Kevin McCormick, who opened Moto in 1997, have been credited with starting the Depression-era restaurant design trend.
The New American brunch menu is heavy on paninis, but there is also a delicious mac and cheese with panic crust and the warm date cake with toffee sauce and fresh cream is a yummy dessert.

As a vegetarian I get extra happy when a place like this exists.

Opened by Chloe Coscarelli, a studied vegan chef and cookbook author who until now was best known for winning an episode of Cupcake Wars, By Chloe is most certainly the best vegan restaurant in New York.

The modern, shabby chic interior — white walls, whimsical menu design, oval-shaped hanging chairs, and family-style table — feels like a perfect fit for West Village.

Chloe´s menu is 100% vegan, plant-based and kosher certified. The menu is free of meat, dairy and egg products and contains no saturated animal fats, cholesterol, preservatives and/or artificial flavors.

One of her most popular salads, the quinoa taco ($10.95) features seitan chorizo, black beans, sweet corn, avocado, tomato, tortilla strips, crema, and agave-lime vinaigrette. The smashed Avocado Toast ($6.95) quickly became my favourite.

The super cozy atmosphere, Australian accents and The Bronte Burger are sure to put a smile on the face of anyone stepping foot in Ruby’s. Add some Brussel sprouts and truffle fries to your order and you’ll surely return to try another dish. If you’re aiming for something light, try out the Pumpkin salad!

Ruby’s is typically Australian. Casual, laid back and down to earth, focused on good fresh healthy ingredients, great coffee and a laid back atmosphere.

Streetbird Harlem

Streetbird Harlem

Harlem has got itself a new diner. Streetbird Harlem by Marcus Samuelsson, who also has the popular Red Rooster in Harlem is behind the new place.

Streetbird is a casual eatery dedicated to rotisserie chicken – and as it says on the sign outside – “In bird we trust”

The restaurant comes with a specific Harlem flavor that pulls from Asian and Latin communities. There are pickles, mac ‘n’ cheese, and cheese fries (called Streetbird fries) on the menu, as well as green papaya salad and Sho’Nuff Noodles, a dish that recalls take-out lo mein. You can have your chicken tucked into Tack Tack, a house-fermented tortilla (injera bread) with mole and pickled red onions.

Samuelsson rooted Streetbird Harlem in hip-hop and graffiti. ”Hip-hop from the golden era of hip-hop has your mom’s music in the background, but it gives it a twist,” he says. ”That’s like this restaurant.”
