    Grab a bite to eat at Candle Café while you’re in the neighborhood. They have amazing vegan cuisine that’s fresh from the farm to the table.

    You can't go wrong with either the cajun seitan sandwich or the paradise casserole. Even the meat lovers can't resist the dishes here.

    With lots of boldly-spiced vegan style food, we think we may have finally found a vegan restaurant that can satisfy even most adamant carnivores.

    A great all organic/vegan restaurant on the Upper East Side. Loved the Ginger Miso Stir Fry with Pinkus Hefe-Weizen beer (claiming to be the world's oldest organic brewer - from Germany)

    Some of the best Vegetarian on the Upper East Side. Try the porcini crusted seitan with mashed potatoes, the portions are generous and you won’t leave hungry. Try their sister restaurant up the street

    Serving up vegan cuisine before juice bars infiltrated the city, this spot will satisfy your carnivorous friends too. Try the rich (cream free!) corn chowder and the ginger vegetable stir-fry.

    Not just vegetarian, this restaurant is entirely vegan. Surprise! You would never know that the cheese on the fab Tuscan Seitan Parmesan Sandwich is not dairy cheese, or that the seitan is not meat.

    http://www.burgerweekly.com/a-word-on-veggie-burgers/ The sheet of fake cheese made my burger more familiar at first, but after a few bites it was blatant overkill. Still, the seitan patty was decent.
