Vegan after dark
Late-night vegan food can be a spotty endeavor. But post-bar hungry, there are more than a few options. Pizza is the king of drunk munchies and there are a few choices in Midtown: Federalist is open until 2 a.m. on weekends, and always has at least one vegan-customizable pie. Pizza Cult inside Holy Diver has the Against Meat, a massive veggie-topped slice. Then there’s Pieces’ cheese-free slice, a longtime late-night vegan mainstay. If the Bambi Vegan Tacos food truck is out late, it’s affordable, consistent and just dang delicious. Its signature Bambi taco with housemade mushroom “beef,” vegan cheddar and crema slaw is always on the board, plus a solidly excellent rotating menu. Thai Canteen is open until 1 a.m. most nights and good about labeling what’s vegan friendly. Really, though, go to Kasbah, open until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturdays. The vegan gyro is killer, the fries are amazingly crispy and for Impossible Burger enthusiasts, theirs is aces.
