Yesterday the family took a day trip to Manhattan and went to the top of the Empire State Building, wandered down 5th Ave, and had a lovely time overall. When 6:00 struck we were all in the mood for a veggie food fix -- would have loved Candle 79, but not with a tired 3-year-old! So instead we hoofed it over to Better Burger on 3rd Ave. Better Burger? You'd Better Believe It! Next to Josie's (a mostly veg, beautiful restaurant and owned by the same folks), Better Burger is just that -- they offer traditional beef and turkey varieties (hormone- and antibiotic-free) as well as 2 vegan varieties: veggie grain and soy. Other vegan offerings include soy hot dogs, chili, and smoothies.
We tried the spinach salad with tofu, grain/veg burger, and hot dog. With air-baked fries, of course. We shared everything and really enjoyed it.
Better Burger has 3 locations in NYC; visit their web site to find out more.
Interested in more such places? They're starting to open up everywhere! Here are just a few I know of; do you know of any more?
Elevation Burger (opening a location in my town soon!)
Hopefully these new places will redefine Fast Food as we know it!
