France is known for their meat-and-cheese based cuisine. From beef bourguignon to croque monsieur to cheeses like Brie and Camembert, the French cuisine has it all. But what happens when you go vegan? Will you ever be able to try an authentic crêpe ever again? The answer is yes, and this New York City has done all of the work for you.
Located in the heart of West Village, Delice & Sarrasin (which translates to “Delicious and Sarrasin,” the buckwheat used to make savoury crêpes) serves 100% plant-based dishes with an authentic French feel. You can feast on vegan sweet crêpes, galettes and other delicious entrees. They also feature vegan wines from Bordeaux, Alsace, Bourgogne, and Cote de Provence.
Delice & Sarrasin is a family-run business. Together, model and economics major Christophe Caron, who runs the restaurant, his mother and head chef, Yvette, and his father, Patrick, have created a delicious vegan menu that brings a bit of France to New York. A must-try is their cashew-based cheeses. The texture and taste is so gooey and delicious, you’d never even tell the cheeses are plant-based.
The menu also has many gluten-free options, and they serve organic and raw dishes too.
This restaurant proves that it is possible to “veganize” authentic French cuisine. Many people think that French food is hard to replicate with vegan alternatives, but the look, taste and feel of the food served at this restaurant proves otherwise.
Delice & Sarrasin is open every day from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm at 20 Christopher Street, New York, NY.
