City Guide: New York
A vegan eatery with a cult following due to damn good cupcakes and veggie burgers.
From the beautiful stone top central table with room for more than a dozen to the hanging crochet hammocks, sitting in by CHLOE feels less like a fast-food joint and more like your best friend’s apartment. Or maybe your best friend’s dorm room given the throngs of NYU students that keep the queue heading out the door. Who can blame them? In a world without meat or dairy, there are comfort foods any vegan misses daily. With well-spiced guac (black bean-quinoa) burgers and creamy mac and (sweet potato-cashew) cheese with (shiitake) bacon, it’s easy to see why this 100% vegan eatery is oh-so-popular.
And for that sweet tooth, try Chloe’s spin on the classic Hostess snack cake, complete with cream filling and icing squiggle. Or for the more sophisticated set, the crown-winning Raspberry Tiramisu cupcake.
