The Fox’s Travels: Fall Foraging in NYC
October 26, 2014 § Leave a comment
The best way to any Fox’s heart is through his stomach. Well call him smitten, because The Fox has been snacking, drinking, cheganing and late night binging all over NYC. Here are a few of his favorites from the past week.
First up is Vinnie’s Brooklyn. This pizzeria creates unbelievably (and almost improbably) delicious grub for carnivores, vegans and gluten-free folks at their two Brooklyn locations. The Fox checked out their Greenpoint location for some vegan chicken drumsticks and a vegan T.Hanks pie – and he will never look at vegan food the same way again. The drumsticks were out of this world, and the pie was gone before it even had a chance to cool. Two thumbs way, way up – make sure you check out this fantastic local pizzeria.
Next is the ice cream parlor formerly known as Lula’s Sweet Apothecary. This East Village gem serves up some of the best all vegan soft serve, hand-packed, flurries, sundaes and floats The Fox has ever had the pleasure of tasting. Flavors include spiced apple cider, chocolate chocolate chip, cake batter and peanut butter fudge. Toppings abound (you can even find vegan marshmallows), and you can find a huge assortment of delicious vegan chocolate bars that benefit local animal shelters. Currently un-named (due to personal disputes), please make sure you check out this absolutely fantastic ice creamery at 516 E 6th Street. You will not be sorry you did.

Finally for those late night cravings, The Fox has found the perfect spot for all you sushi lovers out there. East Kaiten Sushi & Sake Bar is a great spot to grab $16 pitchers of Sapporo, super fresh sushi and a little taste of Tokyo. This sushi bar is actually a sushi-go-round offering up the best sushi The Fox has tasted in ages, with the convenience of the conveyor belt system that takes every plate of sushi past each and every table for easy picking. You can of course order your favorites (to ensure you get some before your neighbors snatch up all of the avocado rolls), and every Friday and Saturday night from 11pm – 3am, all sushi is half off. Let’s review that again – all sushi is half off. Now that you’ve wrapped your scattered-mind around that crazy deal, get over to East Kaiten for a jolly good time.
