Cuisine:Vegetarian/Vegan. Price: $$$. Location: .

For those who think that vegan food is bland and boring, here’s a restaurant that will make you take back every bad thing you ever said about green eating. With three locations around the city, Blossom offers an upscale vegan dining experience in bright and open, yet cozy spaces. The newly-relocated Upper West Side location comes with a liquor license, allowing for the restaurant’s very first full bar. Treat yourself to a number of cocktails as you enjoy guilt-free dishes such as mushroom tacos, breaded risotto balls with vegan bleu cheese, and barbecued tempeh. Make a Reservation.
