Ciao. I’m back from Southern Italy and Rome. What a two weeks away it was! Southern Italy was for one of my jobs – Vegano Italiano Travel Tours. And yes, life – my life certainly – and vegandom is GOOD these days! Give me a bit to pull together some select pics from the trip. In so many weeks, I’ll be nudging you to consider joining us for Vegano Italiano 2016. It truly was a wondrous visit to the countryside of Italy. Week 3 special guest, and vegan cheese queen, Miyoko Schinner wrote about it immediately upon returning home.
I’m still eager to hear about opening dates Avant Garden and more Blossom Du Jours. And certainly anything else in the greater metro area! Grazie.
Meanwhile, excited to share by CHLOE‘s opened Tuesday. The online buzz is great! You’ll find NYC’s newest vegan spot at the corner of Bleecker and MacDougal. Enjoy when you go!
And because we need more spots in Greater NYC, please help me in welcome 3 Brothers Vegan Cafe to the mix. This place will soft open TOMORROW Friday July 31. It is indeed helmed by wunderkind Jay Astafa with baking dynamo Dani. This cafe is out on Long Island in Copiague. Looks like a 20 minute walk from the same named stop on LIRR’s Babylon line. Perhaps EatUP needs go there for September Lunch Bunch?
And in a very welcome double play, Brooklyn welcomes a kung fu-themed vegan restaurant Toad Style.
Thought a good few of you would want to know about vegan-friendly Pommes Frites rebooting. They are crowdfunding now! Please check ’em out.
Was excited to learn about this site, AfroVegans.com, from an email blast.
Let me also share here five different NJ vegan food crawls. Jersey definitely has vegan(-friendly) spots! Just have to know where to go 😉
Continued thanks for sharing NYC vegan scene intel, responses to product APBs, and all the rest for these missives I share 🙂
Happy to say work on the More Than Salad vegan iOS app continues fabulously with local vegan, avid eater, super well-traveled (45 countries!) Meetuper Dan Friedman. We are in need of a good 3-5 more Beta Testers. Would appreciate it if you would please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a iPhone or iPad, dining out semi-frequently, and take food pics. (An Android version will come in 2016, if all goes great.)
