Brunch at Double Zero

Brunch at Double Zero

A new Matthew Kenney restaurant is kind of a big deal. His food is nearly perfectly composed, flavorful and looks beautiful. He is creating an empire of all-vegan… whilest not watering down his brand. Each eatery has a distinct style of cuisine. Today’s: Brunch at […]

Day 3: The Best of Central Florida

Day 3: The Best of Central Florida

Brunch is a “thing.” It’s different than other meals. Maybe because it’s like two of them. Stakes are higher. Like a bad brunch is doubly bad, a great brunch can make the day. Brunch at Daya, an all-vegan restaurant in the pretty Winter Park downtown, […]

Two Brunches in New Jersey

Two Brunches in New Jersey

I am delighted to kick-off the first V.V. report that highlights the vegan wonders of my neighboring states: the Tristate area. As you may or may not know, New Jersey has a lot to offer a vegan.  To start, take these two wonderful eateries… Vital Dining, […]

Blue Backdrop, and one more meal

Blue Backdrop, and one more meal

The time-worn signage of cities less invaded by Big Box is like a living antique. Its hearkening charm is one of the many things I enjoy about getting out of the metropolitan area. The color combinations, fonts, materials hold character. They hold on to something that’s gone.  […]

All-Vegan Done Right.

All-Vegan Done Right.

Philadelphia is very vegan-friendly. They have eateries that far surpass played out, crowded, lesser-quality Manhattan options. Vegan Commissary is one such eatery. Brunch at Vegan Commissary was perfect. As the name suggests, it’s all-vegan. But there is no need for restriction; Vegan Commissary hits every mark, […]

Jersey Day Trip

Jersey Day Trip

Treating my home, and its surrounding cities, like I would an unknown city—subject to the same fine tooth comb in search of vegan options—my list of vegan leads in the neighbor state New Jersey was growing. And preferring a random and mysterious lone vegan option […]

Asbury Park, Vegan Style

Asbury Park, Vegan Style

The reach of vegan keeps extending… and I am thankful for these opportunities of discovery and… sustenance. My latest discovery, Goldie’s in Asbury Park, is an all-vegan and all-respectful-of-food eatery on the renovated Cookman Avenue in downtown in the Jersey Shore destination of Asbury Park. […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 7 [Goodbye, Chicago]

Midwest Vegan, Day 7 [Goodbye, Chicago]

Karyn delivered–in save-the-best-for-last fashion. And after peeping her menus from her multiple vegan restaurants for many years, I was finally sitting in Karyn’s on Green, ready for Saturday brunch. I had the Breakfast Sliders: two delicious Belgian waffles for a bun, their yummy butternut squash “bacon,” a […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 1

Midwest Vegan, Day 1

Home very briefly, it was time already to head back into these United States… by way of Chicago. But first, a scenic overlook in which we gaze upon the isle of Manhattan, New York City’s shining man-child and it’s pleasingly sharp rectangular Central Park. We’d […]

Brunch Lunch (A Turnover Fairy Tale)

Brunch Lunch (A Turnover Fairy Tale)

Every now and again you need to use what you already have–make some movement in the refrigerator. My crisper drawer runneth over. It is not permanent storage. So for my week’s lunch, I’d use it all. It would be brunch for lunch. What better an idea to use […]

New Jersey || New York Vegan

New Jersey || New York Vegan

In one of those wonderful random gifts to the vegan world, Rutherford, New Jersey’s Rutherford Pancake House serves vegan breakfast options. They had me at “Vegan Challah” French Toast. I devoured the plate of moist halves of scrumptious French toast thinking, “Is this really vegan?” I get […]

A Day in NYC

A Day in NYC

Essex, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, is a huge brunch destination. It must be listed in the NFT Guide or something. I have wanted to try their lone vegan dish, the Vegan Mexican Matzo Brei, for quite some time. So with a few days off at […]

A Day In Connecticut

A Day In Connecticut

Vegan food is just like “regular” food. You put it in your mouth, chew it, then swallow. And just like “regular” food, it can be made of junk or it can be made of quality. Vegan foods are not exempt from the simple truth that […]

Day 13 in Deutschland, Stick a Fork In Me (I’m sorry Hamburg)

Day 13 in Deutschland, Stick a Fork In Me (I’m sorry Hamburg)

Hamburg–you big, noisy thing, you–I’m spent. Had I arrived in your arms days, even hours, ago, I may have had the moxy to embrace you back. But I’m tired now. I don’t even want to force myself to go through the motions of an excited […]

First Breakfast, Then Brunch

First Breakfast, Then Brunch

This weird article let me know that the 3 Brothers close to my home was not, in fact, the place to go to get Chef Jay‘s food anymore. The original owners sold the place. I am a bit relieved about this news as the place […]

A trip to Brooklyn

A trip to Brooklyn

Scenes from our “trip” to Brooklyn… The view from our room in the highrise. On the way to Monte’s, Brooklyn’s oldest Italian restaurant, for a rehearsal dinner. The Electrician wore Gucci, me–polyurethane. After way too much wine, the morning after was tough. Brunch at Sun […]

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 5

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 5

How many times can someone have brunch in a week? With so many delicious brunch options to choose from the great city of Los Angeles, breakfast fare, maximized, made up a good portion of my eats. Today, on my last full day, is no exception. […]

Vegan in Toronto, Part 2: Hibiscus Sweet & Savory Crepes and Heavenly Bunners

Vegan in Toronto, Part 2: Hibiscus Sweet & Savory Crepes and Heavenly Bunners

Last minute low-ball bidding on Priceline is a skill I can add to my resume. Being V.I.V.B. (very important vegan bloggers), we needed a safe haven to recuperate from a long day of eating. Luckily, the boutique Indigo Hotel gave us a $100 room for about […]

Waffles at Pine Box Rock Shop

Waffles at Pine Box Rock Shop

CandyPenny‘s “Living Social” coupon deal for Pine Box Rock Shop‘s waffle Sunday was burning a hole in our respective calendars for weeks. It was finally time. With rotating choices of toppings like fruit compotes, chocolate sauce and the essential maple syrup and Earth Balance, I […]

In the 4-0-1

In the 4-0-1

Julian’s in Providence, Rhode Island has fantastic vegan brunch options. Traveling to another state for veggie dining adds a bit more pressure to the ordering process. There you sit with a long list of delicious-sounding options–sweet ones, savory ones, personal favorites–but you must only have […]

liXvb {id est. Long Island Vegan Brunch}

Bread. Hot, soft, fresh-baked bread. With a melon-ball of parsley-sprinkled soy spread, it’s a divine start to brunch. Sunday Brunch at Rockville Centre, Long Island’s 3 Brothers… after spying their brunch menu last week I knew I had to go sooner than later. It wasn’t […]

2010: The Year in Food

2010: The Year in Food

In the year 2010, more than any other, the camera was angled down, capturing flicks of food. Sure, there are people on the other side of the table. Had the camera lifted its head, it’d see. But for a gal who sorts time through food, […]

The Real-Deal Vegan Brunch

The Real-Deal Vegan Brunch

On sunny Sunday, August 1, 2010, I found inspiration in the pages of The Electrician‘s omnivorous cook books as he manually labored in his yard. A proper vegan bunch! Complete with the works: traditional brunch staples, both sweet and savory, served on vintage China and […]
