It’s late winter and things are slow in the restaurant world, but there are a couple of openings happening. Popular vegan chain by Chloe (yes another chain) is opening tomorrow on North 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Expect Tempeh Burgers, Pesto Meatballs and other vegan comfort food:
Burgeoning vegan chain by Chloe begins its next chapter tomorrow, opening a new outpost in Williamsburg, its fourth in New York City and first outside of Manhattan. Located on North 3rd Street off Bedford Avenue, the chain joins other local and more corporate entities like Parm and Whole Foods in opening a location in Condoburg. Expect an announcement from Shake Shack imminently.
Specials for the new location include a Mushroom Avocado Toast with oyster mushrooms, garlic oil and parsley; Cashew Cream of Broccoli with croutons and tofu sour cream; and Toasted Cauliflower Chimichurri. Most exciting of all, however, is their off-menu “‘Burg BLT,” which employs the restaurant’s mind-blowing mushroom “bacon” along with lettuce, tomato, avocado and chipotle aioli on seven grain toast.
Also in Williamsburg, yet another chain, Tacombi, is set to open soon at 335 Bedford Ave:
Different outposts offer different menus, but the Tacombi team says they do not yet have more information on what might be unique at new Williamsburg or Midtown locations. Opening dates are still up in the air, so stay tuned for details.
