Motivated by a passion for the culinary arts and a healthy reverence for nature’s abundance, Good Karma Café’s eco-conscious chefs create delectable vegan dishes that will appease cultivated palates and replenish crown chakras. A leafy assortment of salubrious salads features such chlorophyll-rich concoctions as the Live green salad, whose dark greens are adorned with crunchy vegetables and a mixture of sunflower and hemp seeds and tossed in a sweet apple-cider-vinegar dressing ($10). Crispy blue nacho chips topped with creamy cheese-less queso perform a spicy salsa two-step on tongues ($8), and steamed edamame sprinkled with celtic sea salt perform kabuki dances set to bagpipes for an audience of delighted taste buds ($5). The TLT offers a vegan twist on a classic with tempeh strips, crisp lettuce, and garden tomatoes ($10), and the Chickpea of the Sea gives fish-friendly sailors a cause to rejoice with its variation on tuna salad ($10).

Loving Hut’s name suits its peaceful mission: to create healthy dishes that benefit the body and show respect for the environment. Using vegan ingredients such as soy-based proteins and fresh vegetables, the chefs at each location create a unique menu of gourmet cuisine that serves as an accessible introduction to a plant-based diet; several of the restaurant's offerings can be made gluten-free as well. Vegan sandwiches and Asian-influenced noodle dishes and appetizers are paired with drinks such as smoothies and teas, each of them more refreshing than getting sprayed in the face with a seltzer bottle.
Aimee Follette wouldn’t let celiac disease stop her from enjoying a delicious meal, so she figured dietary requirements shouldn’t stop others, either. The founder and chef of Sun In Bloom uses organic, vegan, and gluten-free ingredients to overcome food issues and create culinary bliss, and crafts made-from-scratch dishes that pack a healthy punch and a whirlwind of flavors.
Diners at Aimee’s upbeat Park Slope spot can jumpstart the day with a stack of gluten-free pancakes, which come glazed with caramelized bananas and maple syrup. They can also seek refuge from the cold in a steaming bowl of chia-seed almond-milk porridge with spiced walnuts, a dish with enough omega-3s, antioxidants, and fiber to make a multivitamin write a poem called “On Inadequacy.” Lunch and dinner items such as the marinated tempeh reuben or the bulging, veggie-packed bloom burger make diners forget all about meat. Inside of the kitchen, which is certified by the International Kosher Council, bakers create gluten- and dairy-free desserts such as the banana cake, a three-layer tower cemented by an oozing blanket of chocolate ganache and topped with a cloud of vanilla frosting. Beverages such as pressed juices, fair trade coffee, and organic smoothies deliver Sun In Bloom’s philosophy in liquid form.
