Practically legendary among the city’s vegetarian and vegan communities, Blackbird offers a variety of meatless pies that range from uber-indulgent (see: the cheesesteak pizza with garlic butter and “vegan whiz”) to salad-like, such as the spinach-and-shiitake-mushroom-loaded “Popeye.” Also a standout is the “Brunchbird,” a breakfast pizza made with tofu scramble and seitan bacon—notable, given that you’d be hard-pressed to find a breakfast pizza at all elsewhere in the city. The menu also offers a sizable selection of sandwiches—such as a seitan cheesesteak and a chickpea “tuna” wrap—salads and desserts. Located in a compact, no-frills space just off South Street, Blackbird’s proximity to vegan donut baker Dottie’s Donuts and Whole Foods makes this a real gem for local herbivores.
