From wandering vegan pop-up to Bushwick brick-and-mortar, this veg den from Ethopian expat Liyuw Ayalew serves diet-abiding combos of five ($14) or seven dishes ($18). Opt for duba wot (sweet pumpkin cubes plunked in spicy berbere), yatakilt alicha (turmeric-spiced cabbage and potatoes) and enguday tibs (meaty portobello mushrooms sautéed in garlic, rosemary and ginger), but ask for extra injera, the supple sourdough flatbread, to sop up all those luscious sauces.
We get it: Keeping New Year's resolutions can be tough. Hell, choosing so-called healthy plates over decadent dishes and snackable cheap eats is downright torture. But this year, we found the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants, health-conscious coffee shops and dinettes, and takeout and delivery favorites to keep your goals on track. So ditch the kale salad and chow down on better-for-you brunch or border-crossing bites instead.
