Very good selection of vegetarian and vegan options. Food is seasoned properly and not overly greasy, which is a flaw at many vegan places. Great service. Place is small, seats around 26 people and largest group setting is probably 6-7 and very close together. If you need lots of personal space, the place might not be for you as it... More

I went with my wife for a brunch. We were so full after the meal that we ate nothing else that day. The food was delicious and we loved everything we ordered (vegan waffle burger, vegan shakshuka and vegan cheese cake). My wife, who is not vegan, loved the food and wants to go again, which is very rare for... More

OG has a wide selection of really yummy AND healthy vegan and vegetarian fare. For the non-vegan in your group, there are organic dairy and fish options. Great for breakfast/brunch lunch and dinner. The coffee is worth the price [the cold brew is REALLY good] and there is also a wide selection of teas, organic/vegan beer, wine and yummy mimosas.... More

I was in the East Village looking for buckwheat pancakes for my birthday brunch and, while many restaurants in the EV have them on thier online menus, the Organic Grill actually serves them! I got mine with pineapple while my companion got cherries. She also had tempeh bacon, soy sausage and a tofu scramble while I had sweet potato home... More

I was early for an appointment so rambled a way past all the delis and pizza places I saw a bright sign for this place. I went with the waitress's suggestion and had their mushroom burger and mango ginger smoothie. Both excellent.

Found on our last day in NYC and really regret not finding it sooner - one of the best meals we ate during our stay (and one of the reasons we go to NYC is to eat!). Go try it - vegetarian or not.

It came to my attention that the owner Julie, feels that if you become indecisive about a meal or found it displeasing and /or under cooked or unsure about the accompanying bun for the burger as preference your labeled and stereotyped as said to me by said waitress. It was appalling, humiliating as well as embarrassing. I ALWAYS TIP the... More

A great little restaurant in the City where most of the fare is dairy free. Added bonuses are that the service was fast and friendly, the food is organic, and there are lots of vegan options for both meals and desserts. Plus the food is just beautiful to look at! Will be making this a regular stop when in that... More

Went here for lunch and for takeout the next night. Wonderful food and great portion size for the price. There juices and smoothies were very good. My girlfriend says it is true, they have the best vegan burger. I'm a carnivore and was able to eat here easily. Will be back!

I love the idea of eating organic, more veggies and less meat. try doing all this Gluten Free and the food doesn't resemble or taste anything like great Diner fare such Eggs Benny,Burgers Chocolate cake. But this is the first place that has great filling tasting food that I assume doesn't want to shorten your life or give you indigestion.... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
