Blossom

Located in Chelsea, New York this seemingly hidden vegan restaurant provides an elegant setting without the extravagant prices.

If you aren’t looking for the exact address, you might just miss this hidden jewel.

Blossom was recommended by my cousin that lives close to Manhattan, but is a carnivore by all means, so I wasn’t sure at all what to expect.

I must say, I was in for a surprise, and so was my cousin (not only a carnivore, but a bit anti-veggie).

Check out the delectable menu we were fortunate enough to enjoy:

We each ordered a starter to split. I, the Seitan Empanadas and my cousin, the Black-eyed Pea Cake- crispy cake of Yukon gold potatoes, black eyed peas, chipotle aioli.

For the main course, I decided (after much decision making, everything sounded so amazing!) on the Pistachio & Pepper Dusted Tofu (I’m a huge fan of pistachios!)
(root vegetable crepe, lemon truffle emulsion, frisée in red beet vinaigrette)

Rob opted for the Seitan Scaloppini (pan-seared seitan cutlets, white wine, lemon & caper sauce garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed kale)

Dessert was just divine. We shared the Lavender Coconut Crème Brulée and the Chocolate Cake (?), couldn’t find this on the menu when I checked their website.

Definitely check out Blossom if you are ever in New York. They have three locations to choose from.
