Lunch Meeting East Village

t
twochesters Jan 18, 2014 03:15 PM

Hoping for ideas for a weekday lunch meeting of 3 people not too far from 1 St. and 2 Ave.
our guest, in his 20's or so. lllllentrer may be vegan.
We are flexible on all counts. I was asked to find something decent, not crazy, when it comes to price. About $20 or so per entree should be fine. We are all casual.
All suggestions are appreciated

    Ttrockwood, peacefoodscafe seems to be at 11St. Wasn't there a Souen near there? We are going to the E 6 St. location so that's a little far for this time but I'm happy to know about it. Thanks!

      Oh, i was thinking the souen on e 13th location.....
      For future ref peacefoods is another good veg lunch choice- they actually make really amazing salads.

          Last time i liked the wakame soup, and the house made breads are good. The broiled tofu with sesame paste was good, the macro plate was blah- no seasonings, very "granola hippie food".
          Skip dessert there- nearby peacefoods cafe has great vegan baked goods if you want to get a cookie/brownie/etc

          Westville east (ave a and 11th) has a good selection of vegan options

          Organic grill on 1st ave b/w 7th and 8th is also nearby:

            Quantum Leap is West of where you will be , but its good for vegans. Palo is another place good for that. Souen also.
            Sorry can't think of anything right by your location, although Palo is just a few blocks away and gluten free too.

              Thank you, foodwhisperer, for the reminder of Quantum Leap. I enjoyed eating in their Queens location long ago. We may may need to stay a little closer this time.

              Is Souen a pleasant environment? And I haven't seen a listing for Palo. Where is that?
              Thanks!

                I think foodwhisperer might have meant Pala.

                    Sorry , it is Pala at 198 Allen St.( 3 blocks away)
                    Souen is a pleasant atmosphere.
