Le Pain Quotidien (Chelsea) does not deliver.
This Belgian chain features a large communal table, but has smaller individual tables as well. Counter service is for take-out only. You'll find soy milk for your coffee, fresh baked breads, vegan blueberry muffins, a selection of "homemade" jams, organic salads, and a several veggie sandwich options. The soup of the day is always vegan.
Although the menu knows what vegan means, the staff may need a reminder to not spread butter on your sandwich bread!
Review by Hallie520 on March 24, 2008:
- There aren't too many vegan options, but there are a few. The food was kind of pricey, but the veggies were notably fresh. I went with my mom, and she got the mediterranean platter, which came with TINY servings of hummus and babaganoush and tons of bread... she basically paid $12 for a plate of bread. Lame. I got the broccoli soup, which was good, but not great, and the black bean hummus sandwich which was tasty. It wasn't bad, but I wouldn't eat there again (mainly because I'm not from NYC, so when I go there I only go back to places that I'm in love with, or else I try something new.)
