NY, New York – V-Note Vegan Bistro


Thanks to Hannah of Bittersweet and My Sweet Vegan for this recommendation:

"Though the whole meal wasn’t pitch-perfect, there were many more hits than misses.  Fans of Blossom may recognize a few dishes from the previous eatery, but plenty of new and exciting items are more than worth a try. The pistachio and pepper-dusted tofu in particular, arriving as an impressive tower of bean curd and greens, is a stunning dish both in plating and taste. However, it was the grand finale that really makes me want to come back for more.

Unassumingly titled “chocolate ganache cake,” it may be more apt to call it whipped fudge. Just the barest sliver of somewhat forgettable cake made up the base, and the rest was the thickest, richest, and perhaps most intense little square of pure chocolate sweetness I had ever been served. Though diminutive in size, a slice any larger would have been overkill; Carefully composed, the plate was just enough to sate my sweet tooth without feeling gorged after a fine meal."

This eatery was just opened in the fall of 2010, and was created by the people behind Blossom, a similar vegan restaurant. V-Note serves brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
