Best vegetarian-friendly restaurant: Blossom



Add +

OTHER NOMINEES: Broadway East, Counter, Dirt Candy

The tag line for Blossom—"Gourmet organic vegan cuisine"—is enough to set off anyone's pretension meter, especially with $20 entres ("Twenty bucks for vegetables?" asked one diner recently). But there's a reason this candlelit den is winning for yet another year: It's that good. A ravioli-with-cashew-cream appetizer proves to be a layered surprise—first the cream (mmm) then the pine-nut filling (mmm!), while the proteins wow: The crispy Thai tofu features lightly fried soy lavished in a tomato-coconut sauce. Twenty bucks for vegetables? Yes, please. Blossom 187 Ninth Ave between 21st and 22nd Sts (212-627-1144)
