Vegan and vegetarian restaurants are having a moment, especially since the venerable Eleven Madison Park turned plant-based back in 2021, all but solidifying the trend. But when Martha Stewart wants her fix of plant-forward meals, she appears to prefer AbcV, led by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, whose cuisine she has praised on more than one occasion, telling The Cut, for example, that she loves his restaurants.
Indeed, abcV is a fabulous choice for enjoying dinner with friends, especially if some of them are vegan. Although some dishes do contain dairy or eggs, most are entirely vegan, with a focus on sustainably farmed plant-based ingredients that are combined in inventive and creative ways. Take, for instance, the whole roasted cauliflower with turmeric tahini, za’atar, pomegranate, and pistachio. There is so much flavor packed in there that you won’t be left wanting.
