This cozy East Village restaurant from Ravi DeRossi is doing upscale vegan food in an intimate rustic setting (complete with a chandelier made of branches). The plant-based menu is broken up into toasts, hot, and cold plates, all of which are complemented by a selection of natural wines, ciders, and beers. Whether you eat meat or not, you'll appreciate how masterfully grains, fruits, and vegetables are transformed into deliciously creative plates here.
