  • Review by FromAtoVegan on May 31, 2011:

  • Before meeting up with the lovely Our Hen House ladies for an interview, we stopped by Sacred Chow in New Yorkís West Village for a bite to eat. Earlier that day, we had eaten at V-Note so we werenít very hungry; but we also didnít want to waste the opportunity to check out an institution like Sacred Chow. Itís quite a skinny little space they have, and you canít see the kitchen space at all unless you walk to the back of the restaurant. There were two other diners when we walked in and several more showed up shortly after we sat down.

    Their menu is different than standard restaurant offerings. They have tapas (divided between plant protein plates and complex carb plates), heros (sandwiches also known as subs or hoagies in our part of the country), salads, beverages, and desserts. I had heard about the food from my friend Lauren, so I knew I had to at least try some tapas to get the full experience. Jim and I decided on the orange blackstrap barbequed seitan with spicy onions, the root vegetable latkas with Indonesian date butter, and cold sliced ginger soba noodles with sweet and spicy peanut sauce. Rebecca ordered a 4 Seasons salad, which had greens, beets, carrots, apple, strips of yuba, and a Dijon vinaigrette (which was technically a small and quite large). She also ordered the Very Berry smoothie with apple juice.

    Needless to say, we ended up with some spicy vittles! The barbequed seitan had a thick and tangy sauce that just lingered on my tongue until I took a bite of latka, which balanced out the spice. The ginger on the soba noodles was just right for me, but Jim was already stuffed and didnít care so much for the spice at that point. Rebecca loved the smoothie and snorfled down the whole thing in just a short bit of time (and sheís one of those slow eaters). We had enough left over to wrap up and take home with us. I really liked being able to share my food this way, family style; it offers a more simple alternative to a structured restaurant environment and the food is just as tasty. I so wanted to get some of their poundcake or velvet triple chocolate brownie to goóbut I was stuffed already and didnít want to bulk up anymore for our interview. I was so satisfied, in fact, that I really didnít need any dessert at all and was fine until we ate breakfast the next day.

    I would highly recommend Sacred Chow. Itís inexpensive, centrally located in the Village, and has a diverse menu and fantastic food.

  • I loved this restaurant. The space is cute, the food is good, and the server was nice. While this is not health food, it was quite delicious. The smoothies are fantastic, the tempeh and sweet potato soup quite tasty, and a tempeh tapa I ordered was one of the best tempeh dishes I've ever eaten. I think the food does tend to be heavy, but with the small portions it works out fine. I also like the presentation of the dishes; they come stacked on a tower! There was only one server, but he was quite friendly. I'd love to come back for brunch or dessert.

  • Truly disgusting.

    The wife and I had several appetizers and a salad. Every bite worse than the last. The only thing I would ever think of having at this dive is the juice. But you can't really mess up juice can you?

    We felt taken advantage of because of our dietary and lifestyle choice. Vegetarians should demand better.

    Horrible.

  • Sacred Chow, I love you, I love your food, your ambiance, your commitment to eco-vegan ethics. But you MUST train or get rid of the waitress. Every time I go it's the same blonde woman who makes the dining experience terrible. She is completely inattentive and forgetful, and is unapologetic when called on it. Today, she refused to let us close the door on this freezing cold day even after several customers complained. She neglected to bring me a cappuccino for 15 minutes after I ordered it, then when I asked brought it cold, so it had obviously been sitting there. My friend, upon seeing that this woman would be our waitress, purposefully ordered just one small thing instead the big brunch dish he'd been planning, because he didn't want to have to tip her, or send money her way.
    PLEASE do something about this. Everything else is so great!

  • Let me begin this with, I LOVE SACRED CHOW'S *FOOD*. The food, that's it, everything else needs some improvement. The menu is kind of confusing. It doesn't apprear that they have many main courses because the tapas seemes like appetezers at first. The specials board is usually hidden behind a seated person so you have to walk over to read it. The temperature is always too hot or too cold. There is always the same server on when I go and she is so slow. It doesn't bother me to wait but she doesn't attend to people in the order that they arrived and when she finally gets to you doesn't give you her full attention. There really should be more than one server on at a time. Once your order gets in it is out quickly but you really have to flag the lady down to tell her what you'd like. As for the food- I've never ordered anything that wasn't excellent and it keeps me coming back. The brunch and tapasare the best, but never go to Sacred Chow if you're planning on a quick meal.

  • The menu at Sacred Chow is wonderful. There are so many inventive dishes with unusual ingredients that taste delicious. The tapas portions are perfect for two people eating out together because you get to try so many different dishes without overeating any one.

    I love the food, but the service is terrible. The past two times I have gone, the same waitress (a British woman) was working and was the only server. She was slow with even simple things like bringing us water. Even at the busiest times, like a Sunday brunch or Saturday night dinner, they only have one waitress working, and it's obviously too much for one person. Because the restaurant is so small we knew she couldn't have forgotten about us, but it sure felt that way. I'm sure she felt stressed, but it would have been nice if she had at least acknowledged to us that she was busy and would be with us soon. Instead she was rather curt when she did come to our table. I really wish they would add another server at busy times because I can't see myself returning any time soon. but the service is terrible.

  • My husband and I returned yesterday for dinner following a movie. Our experience was just as good as the first time (which is cool since we often like a place the first time and then get disappointed on return visits).

    OMG!!! The roasted artichoke bisque is TO DIE FOR!!! Creamy, rich and delicious but not heavy. The flavor was unlike anything I ever tasted. I soooo want that recipe. I had 3 tapas: black olive seitan, collard greens and root veggie latkes; my husband had the orange BBQ seitan hero and the pound cake: orange chocolate chip for dessert. All delicious.

    We also had the nicest waitress (didn't get her name) that we've had anywhere in a long time. Sweet, respectful, helpful, unintrusive, just perfect!!! Give her a raise!!

    Sacred Chow is hitting #1 on our list of fave restaurants.

  • Unfortunately, it was much too hot to eat in on the day I went (no A/C?), so we just did some dessert take-out. The server was nice and we didn't have to wait long, but boy was it hot in there.

    Macaroons were ENORMOUS & served with delicious berry jelly. I would have preferred the macaroon to have been a little sweeter, though.

    Chocolate "Halva" pie was good: thick, very-chocolatey pudding filling, a thin layer of sweet sesame (?)& a crunchy sweet crust like a florentine cookie.

    The Sinner Bar: THE CLEAR WINNER b/c it was exactly the right proportion for a chocoholic: THICK dark chocolate bar filled with a coconut-caramely mixture. Good thing I was with my mom b/c I can't think of anyone else I would have actually shared that deliciousness with.

  • Personally, I don't understand all the mixed feelings about Sacred Chow. I think the place is INCREDIBLE!

    My co-workers and I always have an "end of the semester" lunch but unlike other years, I'm now vegan which presented a "where can we go" issue since there are no vegan places in Tribeca where we work. They, all ominivores, agreed to meet at Sacred Chow which I had always wanted to try.

    Between us, we ordered 9 different tapas (Korean tofu cutlets, blackstrap molasses seitan, avocado hummus, Mama's meatballs, lentil pate, collard greens, veggie pancakes, soba noodles, and a vegetable medley). They were all delicious! We also ordered heroes - I had the black olive seitan - SCRUMPTIOUS! My husband ordered a power bowl - greens, soba noodles, BBQ seitan, caramelized onions - a huge portion of food and DELICIOUS!

    We also ordered desserts - muffins, scones, pastries, and a sundae that was in a giant pilsner glass with blueberry sauce, ice cream, chocolate, sprinkles - coffees and juices. Everything was SO GOOD, everyone kept remarking how surprised they were at just how good vegan food is!!

    The decor is adorable. Sure it's not a big place but it's not as cramped as people made it sound. We were a party of 6, there were many other customers and it was never filled or too crowded. The atmosphere is cozy, intimate and feels like a Tuscan villa with the lighted grapes strung across the ceiling. Even the bathroom is adorable with a white board for messages. Our server was so sweet with the patience of a saint (we get a bit loony after final exams). We couldn't have asked for a better time. We six people ate a ton of food - tapas, entrees and dessert - and it was still less than about $25 per person.

    My husband and I can't wait to go back again but more importantly, my omnivore co-workers want to return as well.

  • Review by Melissa Bastian on January 31, 2009:

  • Like several other reviewers here, I have mixed feelings about Sacred Chow. Overall it's still on my personal top ten list. But there are definitely some problems.

    I'll begin with the good. There are menu items that are out of this world, and which are not replicated anywhere else in the city. Examples: the root vegetable latkes, the sauteed shitake mushrooms (either in tapas or salad form), the peanut ginger soba noodles, and the sunflower lentil pate.

    And on their brunch menu, the Italian frittata is not to be missed. I have no idea what resemblance it bears to a "real" frittata since I didn't have one until after I became vegan, but regardless it's just freaking awesome. You can choose to have it served with a side of fruit salad, which is always absolutely gorgeous.

    I'm also a fan of the iced coffee wakeup smoothie; I always ask them to add chocolate syrup, and they always do. Ah, and do yourself a favor by checking out the daily specials; they are often unique and outstanding.

    Ooh, and dessert! The brownie sundae, the cupcake, the chocolate cake, the sinner bar (!), and the nougatines are all excellent choices - that is, if you somehow have room left after your meal. In the colder months they also make the best vegan hot chocolate I have ever tasted.

    Now for those problems I mentioned. There used to be the issue of the dairy ice cream: totally frustrating, totally baffling, and now thankfully totally gone.

    There remains, though, the issue of seating. It's a small place with a lot of tables crammed in, which is a typical NY problem. But the tables themselves - well, they're fairly unstable. As in, the tops aren't attached to the bottoms a lot of the time. They're also extremely small, making two people getting three tapas plates each quite the logistical issue, even with the cool metal racks they sometimes come out on. The tables are also rather low and the tops quite thick, meaning that I (and doubtless others of the long-legged persuasion) bang a knee at least once per visit. The cumulative result is a very uncomfortable seating arrangement, particularly when the place is packed (and I mean PACKED) for brunch. The chairs they have now are a vast improvement over the stools they used to have, but their seating is still a problem that's only been half-addressed.

    The other major issue there is the staffing. I can't remember ever seeing more than one server on the clock at a time, not even during the insane-o brunch rush. It's not fair to the employees, and leads to slow (and occasionally somewhat curt) service for the patrons.

    To add to the understaffing difficulty, the kitchen is in the basement. If the server needs to go inquire about anything he or she has to go downstairs, leaving the seating area completely unstaffed. Having become acquainted with a few people who've worked there, I've gathered that it's overall an unpleasant experience - and having worked extensively in the service industry, that's something I have a problem with.

    I still suggest that people go to Sacred Chow, but do so knowing that the food rather than the dining experience should be in the spotlight. And please, tip the server well, even if it did take her half an hour to bring you your frittata.

  • I have mixed feelings about Sacred Chow.

    On the one hand, they're in a great location and have an awesome menu selection.

    On the other hand, I'm often disappointed when I leave there after eating because I either feel too full and heavy from a bread/carb overload, or what I ordered just didn't hit the spot the way I'd hoped it would.

    Case in point: I ordered the Better than Biscuits & Gravy for brunch one time and wound up liking the steamed greens the best (over the biscuits/gravy). Another time I ordered the Mama's Soy Meatballs hero and found it to be super dry and bland. But ANOTHER time I ordered the tower of three small plates and was happy with all three.

    I think their strength is in the many small plates on offer, making this a good place to go for snacking and sharing with friends.

  • Review by BankBank on July 24, 2008:

  • Was recommended by the waitress at Candle Cafe, so I figured it had to be great... I wasn't too impressed.

    A friend and I split two heroes: the orange barbecued seitan, and the hummus salad. The seitan was chewy, cold, and bland, and just didn't seem like it was particularly well prepared. The bread was also pretty bland. The hummus salad sandwich had very little hummus on it, and the same bland bread.

    I'm sure there's other stuff that's better on the menu, and this could have been an isolated incident, but for less money you can get a much better sandwich at 'snice.

  • Sacred Chow is one of my favorite places to eat in New York. I have found everything I've had here to be exceptionally good, particularly the Reuben and the Sacred Caesar salad. The service always seems to be pretty good, my only complaint is that its quite small and when the tables are full it can feel a little claustrophobic. The weekend brunch is great, especially the banana bread french toast. They also have daily specials that are always interesting and usually very good.

  • Something has happened to this restaurant in the past couple of months. It used to be my favorite NYC spot, and I loved to split the tapas with my friends. But the prices have gone up and the quality of the food has gone down. The brussel sprouts, which were a mainstay, are suddenly soggy and overcooked. The soups are just always off somehow, just overly seasoned as if someone dumped a thing of burnt cumin in and the seitan has become rubbery and salty. What happened sacred chow? I am so disappointed. I hope they can get it together again.

  • Review by schinkme on March 3, 2008:

  • I eat at Sacred Chow way more often than I should, considering that it is on the pricier end of places I regularly visit. I've never had anything I would consider bad at Sacred Chow--most items are very good, with the occasional mind-blowingly-good item.

    When I eat here with my boyfriend, we usually split three tapas and a soup and/or salad. We often get one of the day's specials, but of the regularly-offered menu items I particularly recommend the meatballs and the Four Seasons Salad. Of the specials, the cornmeal-encrusted brussels sprouts are my absolute favorite. The mushroom risotto is usually pretty amazing, but I did once find it in squishy-undercooked-giant-mushroom territory. Still good, but not as great as it often is.

    When I eat by myself, I usually get a soup and salad, or the lunch special. It's always more than enough food and decently priced, and of course yummy.

    The waitstaff is always very friendly and on-the-ball with the water. The girl that currently seems to work there during the day is particularly nice and friendly. I might have a crush on the guy who dresses like Buster Keaton.

    The restaurant itself is cozy, in that it's small but comfortable. The only reason I'm giving it a 4/5 is the fault of the other patrons--during the winter, the people who inconsiderately leave the door open as they saunter slowly outside make the inside of the restaurant uncomfortably chilly. Obviously, this isn't a problem during warmer months.

  • I went here for brunch with a friend the other day, after hearing good things. Although aspects of this place are flawed, I enjoyed myself none the less. I got the biscuits and gravy.....which were really tasty.....and I could hardly believe that they were vegan. In addition to the biscuits and gravy, it comes toped with collards, tofu scramble and a side of fruit. YUM.

    My friend got the banana bread french toast which was good....but not great.
    My fruit crisp special, at the end, was also really tasty.

    The girl working there was young, and generally attentive.

  • I went to this place for brunch a couple of weeks ago. The service was HORRIBLE. We waited OVER AN HOUR for our food. 20 minutes after ordering the (ONE) waitress came over to tell us they had run of of potatoes. Which happened to be on all of our plates...this should have been a sign to leave right then. During the hour we were waiting she didn't bring us our silverware or napkins. The place was busy, but it wasn't that busy. I got the Tofu Scramble and my tofu was very water-y. I don't plan on returning here. You can get better brunch with less of a wait at other places.

  • I went here last night with 4 other people. I'm vegan, one other is vegan, two others are vegetarian, and one is an omnivore.

    The smoothies are amazing. Definitely recommend the Charlie Brown and the Gym Body.

    We started off with the tapas. Keep in mind, these are very small plates so if you're sharing with a large group, everyone may only get a bite. We ordered the Curried Broccoli, Hummus, Kale salad with amazing Dressing, Orange BBQ Seitan, and the Soba noodles with Peanut Sauce. Each was someone's favorite, so it depends on what you like. I was amazing that the two most boring sounding dishes were actually quite wonderful: the broccoli and the kale. I liked the Seitan, but the Soba noodles were delicious.

    For entrees we all had hoagies. Two people ordered the shredded tofu spa wrap, two ordered the mama's meatballs, and one ordered the hummus wrap. The cole slaw that accompanies sandwiches is delicious.

    I had the spa wrap, which was described by our server as, "People say it tastes like chicken salad; I don't know what that means. But it's good!" It was good. The dressing has a strong dill taste, which was delicious. But if you don't like dill, then avoid the sandwich. The meatball sandwiches weren't as good, to me, because they were dry. The bread is toasted and the meatballs isn't really in a sauce. The meatballs were delicious, but I'd ask to have the bread UN-toasted so it's not as dry. Or maybe ask if you can get some tomato or something. Or put the coleslaw on it. :)

    The hummus sandwich was also delicious and didn't suffer from the dryness factor.

    Overall, the food was all delicious and I'd come back.

    Note that the restaurant is small. You should call ahead to make sure you get a table on a busy night.

    Also, there's only one server. He does a great job, but just keep that in mind if you're trying to make a movie or show afterwards.

  • Review by homicidalmaniacal on November 16, 2007:

  • I am of two minds about this place. I think it's one of the best vegan brunch options in the city. All of the brunch choices are tasty, especially the biscuits and gravy. And yeah, sometimes they're really busy and the ONE GUY SERVING (!) gets overwhelmed, but he's nice about it and I always get my food in a fairly reasonable amount of time.

    However, twice I've come here on weeknights and had horrid experiences. Both nights the girls working were brats who forgot to bring my drinks (and sat there chatting and reading while I waited) and didn't apologize when I had to finally get up and walk over to remind them. They acted offended that I had the gall to ask for what I'd ordered (I don't think waiting 15 minutes for a beer is reasonable, when I can see the server sitting right there goofing off.) Then one of them got my friend the wrong wine (and didn't apologize... this seems to be a trend).

    And then there's the dinner options, which are lame. They offer sandwiches (average, but 'Snice's are much better) and "tapas." The tapas are the real rip off. They're basically pre-made buffet options, like they had behind the counter at the old Sacred Chow, or like you'd get at Whole Foods, only they cost $15 FOR THREE. Which is even more expensive than Whole Foods! (And speaking of price-gouging--why the hell doesn't coffee come with brunch??)

    Last time my friend and I each ordered a tapas platter. It was my friend's first time at the restaurant, and it's always difficult for me to get her to come to vegan restaurants with me, so I wanted her to be impressed. Instead, even though we ordered at the same time, they served my entree 15 minutes before hers. Isn't this like the first thing they teach you in "Restaurants 101": serve the entrees at the same time? And every time we asked the waitress "um, where's her food?" the waitress got all snippy and pissed with us.

    So, yeah. I want to leave this place a nice review, really, because their brunch is delicious. But there is no excuse for such poor service, overpriced food, and lame dinner options.

  • Tried this place for a late lunch this weekend. Truly enjoyed it. I had the pumpkin- lima bean stew which was very flavorfull- dill and huge, fresh lima beans. Something I've never had, but an enjoyable fall treat. It was served with a half (which was more like a whole) of a sandwich. Tofu "chicken salad" with fresh greens and somesort of "nayo-naise". Very good, I will go back when I am in the West Village.

    Wanted to try a dessert - the table beside me was enjoying what looked like an amazing brownie with a huge scoop of soy ice cream, it even had sprinkles! However, I was stuffed.

    Small space, but very, very good food.

  • I have been to Sacred Chow twice, and the experiences have been very different. The first time it was for brunch, and the tofu scramble and the biscuits with gravy dishes were great. The next time, we ate here for lunch and it was mediocre. The grilled tofu lunch special was a good amount of food and it was tasty. The soy meatball sub had a funny aftertaste, the vegan cheese was gluey and it was a little pricey but the peanut cole slaw was unique and really good. I may give the lunch menu another shot one day, but would definitely go back for Sunday brunch.

It is a bit on the small side but therein lies its charm, with intimate candles and even a small fountain to give it that extra comfy feeling. The menu is pretty extensive, ranging from soy dogs to tons of fancy tapas, and tasty sandwiches. It's also nice to have a menu that's pretty much all vegan. Their wine and beer selections are also top notch and eating here always makes me feel like i'm giving myself a special treat. The brownie is INCREDIBLE and super rich as well.

  • We checked out Sacred Chow a few days ago and it was awesome. They have a huge selection of all-vegan food plus a ton of daily specials. I got three tapas and the wife got a hero and we were really happy with everything we got. Plus I dig the decor and the location. I can't wait to try their desserts and their brunch.

  • AMAZING! I would go to this place daily if I lived in New York. My friend and I stumbled across it while walking in the area, and the food was PERFECT from start to finish. We ordered three tapas for $12: Root Vegetable Latkes, Scallion Millet Pancakes, and Portobello Soy Pizza. All were incredibly delicious and beautifully presented. Sacred Chow gets top marks for everything.
