How this place manages to make vegan food taste good may be one of the great mysteries, but there's no doubt that they pull it off. The room and service are a major cut above what is generally expected from such places; there's no health-food vibe, and the servers, like the cooks, are true pros. A vegan restaurant you can bring a meateater to.
Yummy Vegan Food! – This place has such an amazing menu! And it is so refreshing to be able to order ANYTHING off of it! :)
Staff is very friendly. The place is a bit small, but the ambiance is very nice & the food is reason enough to go!
Wonderful fresh organic food – Since changing to a healthier way of living, I have been hocked to organic restaurants in NY. My favorite one is hands down Blossom. Their vegan dishes are so tasty and a true joy for my taste senses. My favorite dishes are the Soy Bacon Cheeseburger and Crispy Thai Tofu.
Closed?? – I came with a group of people from out of town and tried to get a table (weekend) so far so good...
once I found my way in I was told they are closed... midday? break time?
I didn't get a chance to try this place.
Poor excuse for haute cousine – I visited this restaurant a few times back in 08 and 09, and always left in a bad mood. The service is unfriendly and unhelpful. The food is bland and unhealthy despite being vegan. The gnocchi was OK but really no better than what you can buy in a grocery store. Extremely overpriced and overhyped fried food and tasteless dessert.
Hire a cook – Tofu Scramble...a greasy mash up.
I eat tofu all the time. I know how to cook.
You don't just chuck it all together in a pan
with oil and fry everything to death.
The salid (which was fresh) was covered in oil-based
dressing. The veggies in the tofu tasted off.
OK, thought I must have ordered the wrong thing.
So tried my buddies burger. You know, running
to a store and buying a frozen patty and throwing some
soy cheese on it is neither creative nor appealing.
The bun was store bought. Bland and tasteless.
Could be we had a bad day (place was empty)
Fries were good.
Music was bad.
I found my dish unedable and left without eating
more than a few fork fulls. I had not eaten since
yesterday. Cervantes says that hunger makes
a great sauce, but I preferred to go hungry.
A late-'90s attitude..... – Since I dine solo a lot, how I'm treated as a "table for one" is the real test of a restaurant for me. Blossom failed miserably. Quickly: I was ignored at the door after a couple ahead of me was cheerfully greeted and seated; though the restaurant was 3/4 empty, I was told there were no tables; an obnoxious greeter thought it would be more interesting to check his texts than answer a couple of questions. I used to encounter a lot of this in the late '90s; Blossom, unfortunately, still feels like that kind of cliche.
delicious vegetarian – I've been to blossom a couple of times for brunch. The food is excellent- i've even taken a skeptical non-vegetarian, and he was completely satisfied with his meal. Definitely more flavor than one would normally expect from a vegetarian restaurant.
Excellent food! Excellent experience! – This was our first trip to New York we went to celebrate our daughter?s birthday. She is vegan so Blossoms sounded like the perfect place to celebrate her birthday. We have very few vegan restaurants where we live, and none compare to the quality and taste we found here. The rest of the family wasn?t sure what to expect as it was our first vegan meal experience. The food, the service the entire experience was perfect! We started with Ravioli with Cashew Cream and Champinones Medley. Unbelievable! Exceptional flavor! The Chili, Feijoadinha, Phyllo Roulade were incredible, full of flavor, with excellent taste. The desserts were absolutely delicious, sinful just as they should be. All the dishes we tried were superb. We did not find the prices unreasonable at all, the portions were very generous, even took home a doggy bag. Well worth the visit, will defiantly return to Blossoms our next visit to New York!
Fabulous – I am not a vegan or vegetarian but my sister is. I took her to Blossom for her birthday and I was sure that even if I liked the food I would miss meat. I was so wrong. This restaurant is one of the best I have ever eaten at. Everything was very tasty. The reviews below that suggest small portions are inaccurate. My sister and I split two appetizers and could barely finish them. We each had to bring a portion of our entrees home because we were so full. I had it the next day for lunch and was reminded of why I enjoyed myself so much the night before.
Very tasty food but I agree the servings are too small for the prices. – Simply had Ceasar salad and an appy, Ravioli with Cashew Sauce and each was EXTREMELY tasty, and with the most amazing dressing I've ever had on a ceasar sald. But, as described in an older review, the portions were quite paltry (but well presented). I was EXTREMELY offended however, at the outrage of being asked if I want tap or bottled water (what would you choose in NYC?), and receive a delightful tall fashionable glass bottle of VOSS water is served, along with a $7 price tag.... Hey, it's NYC.
