If the Real Housewives of NYC ever have a vegan dinner, there’s a good chance it’ll happen at Plant Food + Wine. Even the plants in this sleek, all-black, East Village spot have individual spotlights to show off their tiny pores. You’ll find the best vegan cheese plate we’ve ever had, plus incredible bread and butter (which is worth the $8), and a veggie burger that’s too good to eat on camera.
