Dining etiquette requires one to use a soupspoon for gazpacho, a dessertspoon for frozen gazpacho, and chopsticks for fitting in when dining with a walrus.

Founded by the owner of Blossom, V-Note dishes up gourmet, internationally inspired vegan fare alongside organic wines and beers, dappled with kosher varieties. V-Note’s culinary wizards beguile taste buds with small plates such as roasted-pumpkin and sweet-potato gnocchi served over sautéed kale ($12), or seitan schnitzel, a mélange of breaded seitan medallions outfitted with crispy vegan cheddar and velvety vegan lederhosen, all complemented by a blueberry reduction ($11). Sate ampler appetites with a compilation of delectable entrees, including barbecue tempeh accompanying roasted-corn salad and avocado ($19), or mushroom-lentil ravioli in a shiitake-tahini sauce ($17). Alternatively, a lunch menu boasts salads ($9–$15), sandwiches and wraps ($12–$14), and an arsenal of smoothies ($7) that pack in as much fruit as a scurvy-fearing sailor.

V-Note

Lauded by Time Out New York for its earth-friendly and healthy offerings, V-Note unfolds an upscale and gourmet bistro menu overflowing with organic wines and gourmet kosher and vegan cuisine sprinkled with gluten-free options. The owners of Blossom and Cafe Blossom have expanded the vegan-eatin' scene with a vast selection of brunch, lunch, and dinner fare crafted from fresh veggies, soy, seitan, and tofu. V-Note's organic wine bar splashes palates with an array of wines that are either biodynamic or sustainable and organic—each bottle gifting mouths vibrant flavors and tasting notes handwritten by the vines they were plucked from. A dark-wood ceiling outfitted with inset track lighting casts a dim romantic glow above diners nestled into contemporary wood chairs and white booths adorned with patterned pillows. Smooth black walls encase the entire eating space, and a wine rack with x-shaped shelves stands prominently behind the candle-laden wood bar. Guests can also enjoy live jazz performances on Sunday nights.
