New York Lauren McInnes 12 comments

Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Times Square, the focal point of New York's tourist economy and home to many a chain mega-restaurant. But amid the mammoth TGI Friday's and Guy Fieri's 500-seat restaurant, you'll find plenty of quality places for a quick bite, a casual lunch, or a full sit-down meal. This guide covers the picks from our original guide, plus our new favorite spots we've encountered since July 2011. More

New York Erin Zimmer 2 comments

I was only vegan for a month. February—the shortest month of the year—at that. Not long enough to comprehensively explore the many vegan options in this city, but long enough to befriend some new favorites that I otherwise might have scanned past on a menu as a flexitarian. More

Eating Everything on the Salad Bar at Maoz Vegetarian

J. Kenji López-Alt 19 comments

We're huge fans of Maoz Vegetarian, the falafel chain that started two decades ago in Amsterdam. Sure, the falafel itself is great: crisp, grease-free, tender, herbaceous, and generous. Their pita is always fresh, pliant, and flavorful (try the whole wheat), and their standard toppings—hummus, sliced avocado, boiled eggs, and fried eggplant—are all top-notch, but you want to know the real reason we go there? The all-you-can-pile-in salad bar. More

The Vegan Experience, Day 11: Diversity Through Restriction

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 36 comments

On Day 3 of The Vegan Experience, I noted that when dining out, I often felt that I was always missing something, like a second class citizen who would only be begrudgingly catered to. But as the days have progressed, I've come to realize that with just a tiny bit of planning, it's in fact the opposite: my food choices have actually diversified since beginning my one month abstention from animal products.

Here at Serious Eats, we’re all about international incarnations of the breakfast sandwich—be they burritos, panini, or something else entirely. Which is why we were so excited to hear about the line of breakfast pitas at Maoz on Union... More

New York Ed Levine 33 comments

There are few things on this earth more seriously delicious than crisp, nutty, and well-seasoned balls of fried chickpea. In the last couple of months, I have eaten falafel all over New York and have come to one inescapable conclusion: Union Square has become the epicenter of falafel activity in this berg. More

Fast-Food Oatmeal: The Good, the Bland, and the Goopy

New York Carey Jones 24 comments

It’s warm, healthy, filling, and pairs well with anything—in so many ways, oatmeal is an ideal breakfast food. But portable, it is not. While instant oatmeal packets can be a fair substitute, those on-the-go (or without a microwave in... More
