Try These Delicious Vegan Versions of Classic Asian Cuisine Before Inventive Cocktails at This Speakeasy Joint
Luanne’s Wild Ginger certainly doesn't serve your traditional protein, and their General Tso’s Soy Protein and Tofu Teriyaki Sizzling Platter will quickly convince you that faux can be delicious. A tranquil vegetarian eatery serving up Pan-Asian cuisine free from meat, what Wild Ginger can do with seitan and soy won’t have you missing the meat. For a life-changing experience, order the Peanut Butter Bomb, a dessert spectacular made by Pennsylvania-based bakery Vegan Treats. It’s fudgy, chocolatey, and finished with a sweet peanut butter mousse.
On your way home, stop into Dick and Jane’s. Upon entry, this Fort Greene speakeasy will surprise you with all the sexiness hidden behind its wooden garage door. Darkly romantic, this cocktail joint is loved by locals for its down-to-earth bartenders who sling inventive, fresh drinks that rotate with the seasons. Happy hour runs until 7 p.m. on weekdays, and drinks are $8.
