In New York (like in Paris), some places become in a couple of weeks (or even days) THE place to be, where everyone wants to check in. You see the kind of place I’m talking about? By CHLOE is one of that kind. I heard about it through a colleague who was dying to try their vegan burger. I didn’t think twice and dragged my boyfriend there the next weekend.
By CHLOE opened last July on Bleecker Street and has been packed since then. The founder Chloe Coscarelli, vegan for more than 10 years, is well known in the vegan cuisine world. Her vegan cupcake won first prize at Cupcake Wars TV show on Food Network in 2010. She then published 3 successful cookbooks: Chloe’s Kitchen (2012); Chloe’s Vegan Desserts (2013) ; Chloe’s Vegan Italian Kitchen (2014).
People line up mainly to try the burger. So we obviously had to taste it and we liked it. I’m a big fan of avocado toasts so I had to try the Smashed Avocado Toast as well, very good. I had the Raw Vanilla Bean Chia Pudding for desert and I loved it (I don’t know why, I have a thing with Chia seeds those days)…
It’s quite crowded so expect to wait in line at least for 20 min (especially on weekends) and to elbow your way to find a table! I think I will go back to try new items on the menu, once the enthusiasm has faded away a bit. (two new By Chloe are supposed to open this year).
Open every day between 10AM and 10PM (11PM from Wednesday to Saturday)
