Maimonides Of Brooklyn serves the vegan deliciousness »
I went to Maimonides of Brooklyn for brunch yesterday with my fave vegan couple. It was the second time I’d been there and reminded me I never posted about the first time I went! With the same couple, but for dinner. M.O.B.’s, as they call it, is pretty freaking awesome. It’s a vegan spot on Atlantic right by Barclays. I haven’t had the signature dish, some sort of pizza/flatbread shaped like the Brooklyn bridge, but everything I have had has been delicious. Above you can see the eggplant biscuit sandwich I had yesterday. The eggplant was smoked and didn’t taste very eggplant-y, which scores points in my book! It kind of tasted like bacon without the death. And I love the aioli on this! Oh and the biscuit itself—oh the biscuit itself! In a modified word, the biscuit sandwich is super-terrific.
Now, here are the pics from my dinner there many moons ago! I don’t remember a ton of specifics but I remember I liked everything. And dang, these pics came out well! If I do say so myself.
Yummy nugget things (the mustard that comes with these does have honey, so ask for mustard without honey—they are happy to oblige):
Tri-color cauliflower! So good and so pretty! The aioli on this was the jam:
The veggie burger gets an A++!:
Below is the mac and cheese with artichokes. I remember I liked it but it was slightly odd. I prefer the veggie burger. But who am I kidding, I’d totally get this again!
And for dessert, chocolate hazelnut torte! Very rich and creamy:
The place is not big and you do have to sit at communal tables but I’ve never had to talk to strangers (heaven forbid!); It was still like I was just there with the people I came with. Maybe because the tables are so roomy. Honestly I’m not one for communal seating but it doesn’t bother me here.
For some weird reason this place doesn’t seem to be well-known. I have no idea why—it’s great! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is fun and positive. I love it.
Coincidentally, my cousin, the famous philosophy expert, just released a podcast on Maimonides, the philosopher for which the restaurant is named. Time for some learning!
Field Roast vegan sausages and burgers on the menu at the SuperBowl! »
You heard me! MetLife stadium is selling Field Roast sausages and burgers at the SuperBowl this year! Wait, they have burgers?! I didn’t know! But according to their FB, their burgers are on limited release at a few stadiums. I’m pretty happy with the sausages though so I’m not even mad. But that’s so awesome! Way better than some dinky vegan hot dog people will laugh at. Even omnivores like Field Roast when they try it! So it will be a good vegan food rep. Those apple sage sausages, right?!
The company is from Seattle so obvi they are repping hardcore for the Sea Hawks, as you can see above. They also did a bunch of Superbowl-inspired recipes you can check out on their site.
In conclusion: Go sports!
Pigeon glamour shots? YES. And I say it’s about dang time. Art genius Andrew Garn has taken to documenting the beauty of NYC’s pigeons, a much abused community. I’m not usually one for photography (I know) but these are awesome. Plus! Garn and the gallery hosting his show are donating 20% of sales to the Wild Bird Fund! That place seems great. I am so down with this. I don’t know how he gets the birds, I’m hoping they are just photographed in the wild? I don’t know. Regardless, they do have a PR problem so maybe this will help. Personally, I think pigeons are amazing!
Vegan Florida in the house!: Ozona Pizza has an extensive vegan menu! »
We got a tip about this pizza place Ozona in Florida and it sounds too exciting not to post! I’ve never been, but should I find myself in Florida, I know I will be here. Vegan ranch dressing forever!
From tipster Amanda S:
Ozona pizza in Florida has so many vegan pizza options using daiya cheeses, beyond meat chicken, beyond meat beef crumbles, organic tempeh, and homemade vegan ranch dressing, and awesome vegan garlic knots and gluten-free vegan options.
I want to get on that train! Here’s a snippet from their vegan menu:
Have any of you guys been here? Share!

Anonymous appears to be taking on the dolphin slaughter in Japan. They are so scary! I’m not super into scaring people but I’m also super against rounding up and slaughtering dolphins. Then again, I don’t want cows being mass slaughtered either, which happens here every damn day. Let’s just say across the board, I’m not into slaughtering. Go figure.

Glory be: Earth Balance releases vegan sour cream and onion chips! »
Oh. Em. Gee. I mean I knew I’d see the day because eventually everything will be veganized but I didn’t know it would be so soon! VeganEssentials is selling vegan sour cream and onion flavor kettle chips! Sour cream and onion chips were my jam when I was younger. I haven’t tried these yet but be damn sure I ordered a bag already. Anyone had them yet? I’m so excited! And I just can’t, etc!
I’m feeling poorly today so let’s watch more cute videos to feel better! This was circling the net last week and it is HILAR. Slow to get started but omg why are dogs the smartest most silliest? And how does he not singe his whiskers?!
Lil Bub for the Humane Society of the US! Because HSUS and Bub want you to adopt a pal! As you should know, Lil Bub is a rescue and she couldn’t be more perfect. Who knows what other amazing creatures are out there looking for a home?! You could adopt the next ALF!
This recipe couldn’t be simpler and it couldn’t sound yummier. Let’s all thank Treehugger for bringing us the smashed chickpea and avocado salad sandwich! I’ve been really into avocado toast lately, at home and at a few restaurants in Manhattan. At home, I just plop some avocado on a pumpernickel bagel and sprinkle a little lemon and sea salt on top. But dang, adding chickpeas? GENIUS! And super healthy, right?
I kind of want this right now but I’m kind of at my office desk and if I start smashing chickpeas, my coworkers will think I’m a weirdo. They already think I’m pretty odd after yesterday, when I informed them I’m on the NYC pigeon rescue street brigade.
