Vegetarian in the Ironbound (Newark)

I'm a vegetarian, and I'll be moving to the Ironbound next month. Any suggestions of veggie-friendly restaurants? I'll be pretty close to penn station, so stuff in the NW part of the Ironbound would be best. Thanks.

      If you take 21 up to Rutherford, you can hit one of the best gourmet veggie restaurants in the area...

      Park and Orchard

        I won't have a car, so Park and Orchard probably isn't doable, but I'll be working not far from Halsey St. so I'll definitely check out Daily Soup and Harvest Table. Thanks!

        I used to work in that neighborhood and will vouch for the Daily Soup. I don't know if they still make it, but they had a veggie sandwich on whole grain bread featuring shredded beets that was to die for. The restaurant is within walking distance of the Ironbound. From Ferry Street, stroll past Penn Station in the direction of the Newark Hilton and keep walking until you are on the other side of the major Broad Street intersection. Halsey is one or two blocks further past the intersection.
