Maybe your parents are taking you out for your big day. Or maybe you want your great uncle to think you’re mostly stable after you left him that questionable voicemail last year. Either way, Blossom is a great spot in Chelsea to have a vegan dinner where no one will have to yell to be heard. So get some lasagna or seitan piccata in the oversized-den of a dining room, and be grateful that your great uncle is asking for your opinion about that New Yorker profile rather than an updated five-year plan.
Blossom is permanently closed.
