Spandex-clad cyclists and bike messengers get their very own vegetarian café courtesy of the people from LES bike store Trackstar. This bike-messenger pit stop shills salads, burgers, bagels and Balthazar pastries, but the menu’s real stars are its enormous vegan sandwiches. The Makeout Party ($8.50), for example, ain’t kiddin’ about the name: A ciabatta hero crammed with spicy tofu, sauerkraut, creamy garlic hummus and enough onion to make a drill sergeant bawl.
