Chloe Coscarelli, a vegan cookbook author, social media star and the first vegan chef to win the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, opened her first fast-casual restaurant, “By Chloe”, in 2015. It was the start of an incredible success story – made in New York.
By November 2016, we count six locations in New York only, one in L.A. and two in Boston. Any new restaurant Chloe opens, causes long lines on opening days and beyond. The restaurants are always chic and airy, with ordering done at the counter and a chance to purchase on of Chloe’s cookbooks while you wait.
Chloe´s creations are highly addictive and once you tried these plant-based goodies, your idea of vegan food will change forever.
The food is cheap and fast, but nonetheless remarkable. Everything is plant based, from soups, salads and sandwiches to cookies, pastries, ice cream and, of course, cupcakes. Coscarelli created a menu filled with items that highlight recognizable, and popular, flavors. It includes a quinoa-taco salad, mac ‘n’ cheese with sweet-potato-cashew sauce and shiitake bacon, and, the most popular item, a Guac Burger, with a black-bean-quinoa-sweet-potato patty, corn salsa, onion, guacamole, tortilla strips, chipotle aioli, and a whole-grain bun. Even the fries here are better for you, air-baked rather than fried, and paired with beet ketchup.

During my last visit in the new location in Downtown Manhattan, I got to try one of her latest creations. The Spicy Thai salad bowl which comes with apricot-sriracha glazed tempeh, almonds, quinoa, edamame, scallion and crispy wontons in a delicious peanut dressing.
Now there is nothing in that sentence that I don’t like!
Only recently Chloe opened “Sweets by Chloe” right next to her first restaurant and little surprising, it became one of the cities hot spots for vegan and non-vegan foodies alike. The line to simply get into the shop is gigantic. Lucky me, her sweet treats are also sold in the other locations, so I didn’t hesitate to get myself a delicious Matcha Blueberry Muffin, once I already made it to the counter. This is definetely one of my go favourite vegan restaurants world wide!
