Guilt-Free Eating & Shopping In Park Slope: Vegan Food & Thrifting
The VSPOT is a godsend for both vegans and the people who love them, especially the people who claim vegan fare never lives up to carnivorous options. The impressively extensive menu has a Latin bend, making empanadas and overstuffed burritos the standouts here. Their creative meat substitutes are so well done that you’ll want to double check that it is actually vegan (it is, and it’s also kosher, and there’s a decent chance it’s also gluten-free). The spot has a laid-back vibe with walls and art as colorful as the dishes. One pitcher of sangria and an order of avocado fries will have even the strongest of bacon fans feeling at home.
Follow up your guilt-free eating with some guilt-free shopping at L Train Vintage. This vintage spot is well-known among NYC clotheshorse for having one of the best and most organized selections in the city. A dedicated search through the warehouse-esque space with your date could reward you with brand names or funky pieces for less than your weekly latte budget. Turns out taking turns picking out Hawaiian shirts for each other can be a pretty romantic Rorschach test.
