Whether or not you’re vegan, you probably haven’t been to many restaurants like Sans, and either way, you should add this vegan Carroll Gardens spot to your list right away. The menu is full of things you probably won’t find anywhere else, like plum terrine and a “TV Dinner” with a mushroom farce (basically a meatless meatloaf made out of mushrooms), and everything we’ve tried has surprised us in a good way. For instance, even though the terrine is made completely of plums, it somehow tastes like a mix between chilled butter and sweet foie gras. This is a good date spot, and the bar also works well for casual weeknight dinners (solo or with a friend).
