A brand-new hot spot on Carmine Street offers an array of sophisticated comfort food and specialty desserts: The Urban Vegan Kitchen! The inspiration for this new laid back and hip lounge came from the minds who are behind one of New York City’s largest vegan fast food chain, Blossom Du Jour.
The result of a collaboration between Chef Timothy Pakron (@missisipivegan) and Blossom owner Pamela Elizabeth shows eaters of all persuasions that vegan food is more than kale, quinoa, and tofu. The upscale vegan street food concept offers what other people do not serve: Great vegan chicken and waffles, po’ boys and fried okra – an array of sophisticated comfort food and specialty desserts.
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.
