I love going to mainstream restaurants that offer vegetarian and vegan options clearly on the menu. Haven Restuarant in Pleasantville is a favorite. But when I’m looking for something more casual I opt for Harry’s Burritos in Larchmont.
My husband and I like to go to Harry’s on Sundays for brunch- as in lunch with Bloody Mary’s.
One of my favorites is the very simple taco. I could go with beans as a vegan option but I love the “ground soy” (versus ground beef) taco.
Another favorite is the super burrito. I tend to order it with mixed beans (black and pinto) and vegan sour cream and vegan cheese.
