This past Saturday we had dinner with a group of friends at an amazing Manhattan vegan restaurant, by a Michelin-starred Chef called Nix. The location is not so “behind the scenes”, since it’s only a few steps away from Union Square, but we all really enjoyed it!

Nix is a Manhattan vegan restaurant, founded by the Michelin-starred chef John Fraser and James Truman. The restaurant serves a huge variety of dishes with very fresh, seasonal vegetables (one of Fraser’s cooking passions).

The dishes we tried were all prepared in a way perfect for sharing which, for larger groups, is ideal. We love being able to taste a bit everything!

The flavors were fantastic, presentation was impeccable and the energy of the place is hard to describe, but very very welcoming and peaceful.

A few dishes you can try, that are our favorites:

  • Tandoor bread
  • House hummus, zaatar
  • Labneh & marinated cucumbers
  • Steamed tofu, smoky mushroom dashi & celtuce
  • Cauliflower tempura with steamed buns and house pickles
  • Artichoke and broccoli rabe sauté with preserved tomatoes
  • Pea dumplings, radish, ginger an& scallion

It’s a great place for drinks too, since they have a gorgeous full bar and some pretty cool cocktails! You can try some unique options like the Playa II with passionfruit juice, reposado tequila, champagne foam and the Honey Bee with thai basil, clover honey, gin, sake.

Chef Fraser’s belief is “that eating vegetarian or vegan should feel more celebration than sacrifice”, and we couldn’t agree more!

It’s surely a lifestyle we love, and that our Founder, , is pretty much a part of. Plus, if you are a bit skeptic about it, how about opening your head and maybe just trying it out? Won’t hurt and it might surprise you!
