best vegan food

I know this was covered years ago, but looking for a fresh take on the best vegan food around the city. Anywhere on the Island is great, in any price range. Simply looking for the best vegan food around, most likely in an all-vegan resto.

Thanks so much in advance!!

      thank you!
      so, do you have to specify that you'd like it vegan, or are the dishes you ordered vegan by design?

      1. re: noya

        They ask you when ordering if you'd like a dish made vegan (a couple are vegetarian as the default preparation) - and then substitute 1 or 2 ingredients. It seemed to have been pretty stardard practice, though.

        I was also going to suggest Blossom and I think One Lucky Duck has a lot of take away vegan options.

      2. Kajitsu? Their chef who got the Michelin stars recently left, and I don't think there have been any reviews since the new guy started. But it probably hasn't changed that much.
