great healthy food

One of the best places in the city to eat healthy vegetarian food. I try to go there on a regular basis to keep myself healthy. The macro plate is great value.

First of all I want to say the service was excellent! The waiter was super nice and he recommended the perfect dishes & tea. I told him I had a sinus congestion and like a doctor he guided me through menu options. Very cool. So I said Souen lives up to its name because I had read about it 7... More

Menu was excellent, as was the food. I tried the pad thai and squash tofu--both were excellent. Love the vegan menu.

All I can guess is that negative reviews come from people who do not put quality of ingredients first, are used to over-salted, sugared, chain restaurant fare. I do put health first, always want to eat organic, so eat at one or the other of the Souen restaurants 2-3 times a week. It's like my kitchen away from home, and... More

We came here courtesy of a recommendation from our daughter who enjoys well-cooked and reasonably priced food. We were not disappointed. My spouse and I had the Special of the Day crab and avacado sushi roll with brown rice, miso soup, and black eye bean and vegetable soup. Very tasty and filling. Never had sushi with warm rice but it... More

Overall, Bad. Food subpar at best, and overpriced for the quality. Service was slow. 'Crunchy cabbage salad" was literally a small bowl of plain cabbage..for seven dollars.

I go here often when I can, the food is nothing over the top but they always have a very wide variety to choose from and you should be able to find something you like. If you care about healthy food this is a good option.

Decided to stop in for lunch with my cousin after seeing their outside board with fish, vegan and macro food offerings. Friendly host, got seated right away. The menu took a little getting used to but in the end you can customize your food in enough ways. And this is from where the whole thing went downhill. Our server was... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
