🗽 LE BOTANISTE

The various branches of Le Botaniste (in Soho, among others) are furnished as old-fashioned pharmacies and CO2 neutral. They offer excellent organic, gluten-free, vegan food that is also suitable for those following the paleo principles. For example, the friendly service gladly replaces the brown rice in the “Tibetan Mama” dish with cauliflower rice. And cleverly, Le Botaniste puts bottles of water and glasses on the table, so that waitstaff is not constantly pouring you more water than you want, which will undoubtedly be thrown away later. Long live Le Botaniste!

🗽 Crave Fishbar

A great restaurant that offers locally caught, sustainable fish as well as tasty vegan dishes. I have been to the Crave Fishbar in Midtown East, where the ambiance is festive and the terrace a good spot to enjoy a sunny lunch. There is also a location on the Upper West Side.

🗽 THE MARSHAL

This exquisite restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen, which has a terrace on 10th Avenue, runs on wind energy! (During corona times, The Marshal only offers pizza, but hopefully it will eventually revert to a menu that includes gluten-free dishes.)
