Who loves Vegetarian food? We do! All our other tours are a little heavy on the carbs, so we thought we would introduce a tour that people can participate in without worrying about how many pounds they're putting on. Vegetarianism is a rising trend in NYC and for good reason. So, if you've not had a lot of experience with it, then come and try some for yourself. The East Village is one of the nicest areas in NYC, a district formerly part of the Lower East Side. During the 1950's the area was home to the Beatniks, and in the 1960's hippies, musicians, and artists. The East Village is known these days for its expensive housing, trendy bars and restaurants, and students from the nearby university. There are also a lot of trendsetters living in the East Village, which has led to a rise in vegetarian and vegan restaurants. On our tour you will be visiting 5 different restaurants serving vegetarian and vegan style of food in the East Village. Tasty hummus and dips, assorted vegetables bursting with flavor, a healthy dessert and more will be on the menu. If you are unfamiliar with vegetarian food, come and find out for yourself how delicious this cuisine can be when done right. The restaurants we've chosen are so good that you might never eat a hamburger or steak again!
