Christy – The V Spot

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! Hope you are all enjoying this loving day with yourself and with others.

Last night, Jeff and I headed to Brooklyn to meet some friends, one of which is a fellow counselor that I went to nutrition school with, Debra. She is also an amazing personal trainer that I was lucky enough to work with when I was living in NYC.

She and her husband Evan just moved to Brooklyn and we were so excited to go see their place and eat at a local restaurant.

There are tons of great spots in Park Slope for the health conscious (we passed by a place called the Tea Lounge which is adorable and I totally wanted to go in). We decided on a place called The V Spot.

It is this adorable Vegan cafe with lots of comfort food options. We got a bunch of appetizers to split, including Kale Tostada which is kale, beans, avocado and salsa on top of a crunchy tortilla. This was my favorite!!

And I added a salad to my dinner; some of the others had soup too.

I really loved the cafe. The food wasn’t amazing but it was good and satisfying and I did not miss the meat at all.

OH! – and coming soon, I will give you the scoop on something amazing that Debra has created…stay tuned….

Wow, those plantain chips sound delish! I loved Park Slope, and I always think what a shame it is that I never really got to experience all of the awesome eateries there. This Cafe looks wonderful, glad you had such a good time. :-)
