This summer, my husband, stepson and I were walking around Nolita and found ourselves suddenly famished. (You do a lot of walking in New York). We stumbled upon a great restaurant called Delicatessen with outdoor seating.
I had a scrumptious dish of falafel, tahini sauce, grilled vegetables, fennel and arugula. Their menu changes seasonally but it appears that they always have at least one vegetarian item on their menu that can easily be veganized.
A side of locally made pickles is the perfect complement to a meal...I learned this from my husband, the pickle's number 1 fan.
A perfect spot for dinner as the sun sets...
