Desserts from Gobo

Chocolate cake anyone? Ben found himself a great slice! Tonight my first vegan friend (and spiritual mentor) John Oliver was in town and took me to Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side.   Afterwards, we went to Gobo for dessert.  Believe it or not, this was my first time at Gobo.  EVER!  Where have I BEEN?!?!?!?  The atmosphere was …

We <3 Terri!

Over here at BFVR we love any excuse to rave about one of our favorite NYC vegan hot spots, Terri! Last night, DJ Brian Kalinowski asked if he could join me to grab some food as his “first vegan experience”. As I always like to do, I offered to share my entree with Brian so that we could each sample …

Go Vegan at Subway!

Ben offers step by step instructions on one great easy way to eat vegan on the go! Subway sandwiches were originally a much bigger staple in my vegan diet.  Maybe it’s because there are just so many more vegan options all around me now, but lately I don’t go to Subway all that much. But when I do, I feel …

Kids Love Kale!

We don’t have much to say today other than, have you watched the newest episode of The Vegan Drag Queen featuring Our Hen House yet? Tonight I got a picture texted from my brother, Mark: MARK: Kale is in the house! BEN: I don’t think anything makes me happier than seeing you and your kids loving kale!!! It is THE MOST …

Zen Palate

An ode to Ben’s favorite restaurant! Most people have heard how devastated I was when I got back from Iceland, only to find my local Zen Palate (and I mean LOCAL!  Like ONE block away from me!) had CLOSED!  Luckily there are still a few other locations around town. Today after a photo shoot in my studio, I had a …

Amichi’s Pizza!

Laura loves pizza y’all! Always willing to travel the world and taste the vegan stylings…. For those of you who don’t know, I am a bit of a pizza junkie. Unfortunately I do not live in a particularly “hot” vegan pizza zone so I’ve been getting by on frozen Tofurkey pizzas and ordering cheeseless pies from the local pizzerias. A …

Way Out Waffles

Laura took her sexy butt up to San Francisco to check out the Way Out Cafe Waffle Party. She freaking loved it! Despite having convienantly let many people think/assume that I have moved to San Francisco, I actually have not. I live about an hour south so when I make the drive up I like to get my eat on …

Ben Goes Green! Episode 2!

Hey everyone! Ben’s green adventures continue………….. Today was a two-meal day. What I wanted to do was go to Blossom Cafe for pancakes and tempeh bacon. More brown, brown, brown… So I offered myself a compromise. I went to Maoz Vegetarian for a falafel sandwich (5 pieces of falafel on a whole wheat pita with hummus) and sweet potato fries, …
