3 Healthy Brunch Spots in NYC
I went on a mission to eat at three healthy brunch spots that I frequently see on Instagram during my time in New York City. These three spots were so yummy and all three were healthy and very Instagram friendly! Many times while I am traveling, I blow my healthy eating regimen so it’s always fun and exciting for me to find new places to eat at that are healthy and also photogenic!
ByChloe – ByChloe is one of those places you want to go to simply from their amazing packaging/marketing. I always wondered if it was good because it looked incredible from the photos. I walked by their Bleeker Street location and there was no line, so I walked in and ordered their Original Burger which is completely vegan. They have Beet Ketchup and Chipotle Aioli sauce that make the veggie based patty taste like a true burger. Seriously, it has all the components of what makes a perfect burger: the bun, the lettuce, a perfectly crisp tomato slice, and pickles. The only thing it doesn’t have is meat. If I could eat a ByChloe burger everyday, I don’t think I would feel the need to eat a real beef burger again. I highly recommend trying this place! I just found out they have a location in Pasadena so I’m going to be going there a ton once I am back home in LA. Another item on the menu that I tried is their Quinoa Taco Salad. I have been getting it nearly everyday. This place is a must!
Bluestone Lane – Bluestone Lane is a restaurant I recently started seeing on Instagram and I knew I wanted to try it immediately from the looks of their gluten-free, vegan banana bread. I went after my first NYFW show and loved their Egg and Grains Bowl, but naturally I needed something sweet and the Banana Bread was the perfect solution to my sugar-craving problem! It was SO good. There are multiple Bluestone Lane locations so it’s definitely worth going to if you are like me and like to eat healthy when you travel, or if you just want to go to a cute place for coffee!
Epistrophy – Epistrophy is not one of the most trendy NYC brunch places on Instagram (yet). It’s super cute inside and I loved their breakfast bowl with two poached eggs. They also had their version of Gluten-Free Banana Bread which was more moist and really good!This place gets packed on the weekends so I would recommend going during the week for a quick and healthy, and also reasonably priced breakfast!
