Too often Vegan restaurants cater only to the down home hippy market, failing to capture the dining dollar of the wealthier ethical diner. Luckily New York City is a bustling food market with a restaurant to cater for every possible variation. Blossom own multiple restaurants in Manhattan, but the venue on Columbus is a lovely formal dining affair within stone's throw of the Central park. The wonderful food and easy distance make this the perfect stop for a post Park or Museum outing.
By being entirely free of animal products the menu at Blossom also caters easily to the allergen market - gluten free, dairy free, wheat free, nut free and low carb options appear throughout.
Buffalo Risotto Croquettes $10USD
Spicy risotto is breaded and fried served with vegan "blue cheese"
Heirloom Tomato Salad $14USD
A vegan rendition of a classic Caprese salad with vegan mozzarella and cashew cream.
Mushroom Ravioli $13USD
Hand made ravioli stuffed with mushroom with a vegan butter sauce.
Southern Style Seitan Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries $17USD
Seitan is a gluten based meat alternative which is not to my taste but was well enjoyed by my friend. Each of the Sandwiches could be served with a variety of sides
Vegetable Lasagne Stack $20USD
As a low carb eater I always love to find pasta alternatives. This vegie stack included pasta sauce, vegan mozzarella interleaved between layers of eggplant and zucchini and topped with arugula.
Fetuccine Alfredo $19USD
For a group with very specific food needs this was a perfect choice, while some of the food may seem a little bland or strange to omnivores the chance to have an entire selection of Vegan dishes is rare. The restaurant is well decorated and the customer service immaculate, much recommended.
