The food is terrific and so is the ambiance.
For someone that is not vegan I don't go to meatless restaurants often. But Karyn's on Green is an exception. The food is cleverly disguised as standard comfort items but without the guilt. Tofu and other ingredients are blended in such a creative way that you don't feel deprived of meat, dairy, and other items that are NOT used by Karyn.
The remodeled restaurant is comfortable, the staff is knowledgable, and meal is outstanding. Take it from a foodie you wont' be disappointed.
Citysearch Editorial Review.
When the words “vegan restaurant” are uttered, two things usually jump to mind: a limited, bland-tasting menu and unimpressive, eco-friendly decor. But Karen’s on Green, the third venture by famed vegan Karen Calabrese, feels more like a five-star steakhouse (minus the meat, of course). Sleek decor, intimate lighting and a wall of windows gives the place an edgy feel, while the menu is hardly restricted to nuts and berries. Instead it’s filled with vegan dishes that mimic meat-hearty meals, like a portabella “steak,” fried “chicken,” and a “meatloaf” sandwich. Add some pizzas with soy cheese and raw ice cream to seal the deal. Then, belly up to the sexy bar (filled with health-conscious foodies) for some organic wine.
