This week’s fashionplate is light and fun for the start of Spring. I’ve been wanting to check out Avant Garden, a tiny vegan spot in the east village next to Miss Lily’s 7A so the bestie and I went one Tuesday evening. Good thing I made a res because this petite spot was not accepting walk ins even on a Tuesday. We abstained from drinking and decided to split a few things. The smoked eggplant toast was amazing and you are given two large pieces. My friend wasn’t fond of the fennel hummus toast, it has a bit of a citrus quick to it. For mains we got the maitake mushrooms which was perfectly seasoned and even non veggie lovers would like. We also decided to add some carbs and basmati rice risotto which we both gobbled up, it was that good. We left satisfied but not stuffed. If you come super hungry I would probably add one more dish for two.
The vibe was chill and cozy. There were lots of groups of two girlfriends catching up and a few dates. Good job boys, keeping your women happy by trying vegan food. See how I styled our Katharine striped shirtdress for this fashionplate below.
