An Entirely Plant-Based Vegan Fast-Casual Restaurant Has Opened in New York City

By Chloe, from chef Chloe Coscarelli and ESquared Hospitality, opened this week in the West Village

Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean your lunch options should be limited.

Chef Chloe Coscarelli, a former contestant on Cupcake Wars and the first vegan chef to win a reality TV cooking competition, is bringing her vegan culinary chops to the West Village. Coscarelli opened By Chloe this week, bringing fast-casual, entirely plant-based fare to the West Village at 185 Bleecker Street. The menu at By Chloe features vegan seasonal salads and soups, house-made burgers and sandwiches, fresh pastas, cold-pressed juices, ice cream, and pastries.

“One of the main goals for By Chloe was to make eating healthy and vegan easily accessible to New Yorkers,” said Coscarelli. “Whether they are coming in for a quick, filling lunch post-workout, grabbing a scoop of cream before class, or sitting down after work to enjoy a full dinner with juice-driven cocktails, I want our diners to feel at home at By Chloe.”

Some of the vegan menu items that even carnivores can enjoy include spicy Thai salad with apricot-sriracha-glazed tempeh, quinoa, edamame, scallion, crispy wontons, and peanut dressing; kale artichoke dip; creamy mac and cheese with sweet potato-cheese sauce and shiitake bacon; and the pesto meatball sandwich made with Italian meatballs, marinara, sweet peppers, basil pesto, cashew mozzarella, and almond Parmigiano-Reggiano.


Stumptown Coffee will provide coffee, tea, cold-pressed juices, and cocktails in the space.
