Searching for tasty vegan cuisine can be a daunting task, as many rookie chefs mistakenly remove flavor, variety, and their contact lenses, in addition to animal products. Discover a bounty of delicious meat- and dairy-free dishes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $32 worth of gourmet vegan fare at V-Note.

Founded by the co-owner and creator of Blossom, V-Note serves upscale, animal-caring cuisine in a comfortably sophisticated atmosphere. Early-rising diners can stop by to nosh on favorite brunch flavors, such as French toast with maple syrup and tempeh bacon ($11), paired with a secret-recipe Butterfinger shake ($7). Night owls can awaken their palates with appetizers such as the crispy black-eyed pea cake with yukon gold potatoes and spicy chipotle aioli ($9) before moving to a main course of pistachio- and pepper-dusted tofu, nestled into a roasted-root-vegetable crepe adorned with a decadent lemon truffle emulsion ($20). Appease insistent sweet teeth with a dessert of dark chocolate fondue ($14), served with enough fresh fruit and just-baked cookies for a couple or a newly health-conscious Cookie Monster. Because V-Note's owners understand that hunger, much like an eternally late automaton, has no internal clock, the restaurant also serves a menu of light tapas from 10 p.m. until midnight.

Handsome polished woods and star-like overhead light form V-Note's elegant and warm interior, summoning eco-friendly foodies to dine cheerfully on the Upper East Side. Snuggle into sumptuous white upholstered couches in the intimate dining room, or lounge at the bar with an organic quaff. Sip a sustainable selection such as the Pacific Redwood Pinot Noir 2009 ($9 per glass, $36 per bottle) to relish notes of raspberry, spice, and Mother Earth's gratitude.

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.
