First Review by cassius

a fine spot - Edit

Went here for a delightful brunch. Had the tofu Benedict which was amazing! Best I’ve had vegan or not. All the food was great, the presentation was wonderful, and the setting was delightful.

One of my favourites in NYC - Edit

Blossom is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in New York. You can’t simply be disappointed with their dishes, in terms of portions, presentation, and flavour. I have tried many of their creations, which are simply outstanding. I have tried their Caesar salad with fake chicken bits, they Cape Cod cakes (wonderful!), and above all their main dishes which are huge, such as the Port wine seitan and the hickory barbecue tempeh. Their tiramisu is also very nice, sweet and fluffy, even though the coconut cream note is maybe too strong. But it’s something that can be forgiven! Just a final note: as it is not cheap, I would expect a more caring service, especially when you leave and nobody says thanks and goodbye. Maybe it’s not a habit in NY, but it would add the extra touch you would be expecting by such a place.

Pros: outstanding cuisine, large portions

Cons: I would expect staff to say goodbye when you leave

Consistently great - Edit

I eat here nearly every single time I travel to NYC, which is pretty often. Love their port wine seitan and ravioli, especially. Fantastic place to take friends for dinner.

Delicious but Pricey - Edit

The food here is delicious, but it is really pricey. It's a once a year event for me, unfortunately. I'd go more often if they made the prices more reasonable. I think restaurants charge a lot in NYC to help pay the rent, but they charge so much that the majority of the people who would go there can't afford it on a regular basis.

Fabulous vegan food - Edit

We visited Blossom last night after finding it through my Happy Cow App. What a delightful restaurant. Our waiter was extremely helpful and friendly. He gave great recommendations. We started with the chefs tasting plate for two, it was a taste extravaganza, yum. I had the pine crusted eggplant dish for my main and couldn't have been happier. It was delicious.
My chocolate dessert was also divine.
The restaurant was popular and had a buzzy atmosphere. We booked and did see people being turned away.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent NYC choice - Edit

Had a wonderful meal here. If you can only have one expensive vegan meal in NYC though, I would recommend Candle 79. However, this place is fantastic.

Vegan Fine Dining at its Best - Edit

Blossom is an upscale restaurant with beautiful ambiance and great service. The best table is the one in the secluded alcove by the window. My husband and I have been here for brunch and dinner and both were outstanding. The pasta and picatta are both excellent. For brunch we loved the French toast and country breakfast of tofu scramble and soy sausage. The prices at Blossom are high, so my husband and I go to Blossom on special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. Blossom should definitely be on your bucket list.

The food is absolutely way too delicious! I had the Cape Cod Cakes, Trumpet Mushroom Scallops and Raw Passion Fruit Mousse! Those scallops literally are the end of me. I need them in my life every day. I don't know how I'll be able to go on without them. I live in LA!! 😭

hip/high class restaurant - Edit

this place is a bit fancier price wise as well as food quality, consider massaging your taste buds here and pay accordingly! if you are looking for really nice dinner place you may book a table beforehand and enjoy your evening here, but just for quality food there is a lot cheaper and more easygoing places to choose from in NYC - maybe this is just me and when i grow up ill come back and rate this place heavenly!

Pros: delicious food, nice staff, the place to go to enjoy dinner

Cons: pricey, crowded

Happy birthday to me! - Edit

My family (non-vegans) let me pick the restaurant while we are visiting NYC. After looking at many sites and reviews I picked Blossom. So happy I did!
They had fried pickles, salads, and sides. I had the lasagna. So yummy!!
We each had a different dessert to share. Favorites were the apple cobbler and chocolate ganache. They brought mine with a candle and the whole restaurant joined in as my daughters sang "Happy Birthday!"
I left very happy!

Pros: lasagna , chocolate ganache

Cons: no kids menu

Simply the best vegan restaurant in NYC - Edit

We've tried them all in NYC: Candle 79, Dirt Candy, Modern Love, Eats by Chloe, Champs Diner, V Note, etc. But year and after year, we come back to Blossom Restaurant. That's always where we have the best experience, the best food and the best memories. Check it out next time you are in NYC. Everything on the menu is fantastic.

Pros: relaxed atmosphere, high quality refined food without pretention, great friendly service

Cons: none

Nice food - Edit

I came here as a birthday treat. We had an entree, main and dessert. The service was quick and the waiter was helpful.
I enjoyed all of the options but I didn't think that any were incredible and I've had nicer vegan meals in NYC for half the price. I thought the servings were small too although dessert was fine.

Cons: expensive

Elegant restaurant with delicious food - Edit

Had lunch on a Tuesday and got the last table, so probably good to book in advance. The place serves delicious food - try the Cashew Cream Ravioli, it's amazing! The lasagna and quiona salad were also really good. A bit pricy but higly recommend this place.

One of the things I like to come to New York for - Edit

Blossom Vegan Restaurant (9th Avenue Chelsea) is among the best vegan restaurants in the world. I like traveling to big cities, and one of the things I like to do is try different vegan and vegetarian restaurants. I don't think any city in the world has the choice of quality vegan restaurants that New York City does (I don't mean falafel joints, fast food places, juice bars, and the like, or those health places that serve you a bowl of grain and beans or stewed vegetables - I mean creative attractive cooking). And in New York City, there are several excellent vegan restaurants, Blossom being among them. Given that I have to restrict the carbohydrates I eat, I am, nevertheless challenged to find what to select from the menu, but I ended up choosing two first courses, rather than a main, and enjoyed them very much, and I got to try different dishes that way. One of them was the raw zucchini rolatini, which was tasty and served beautifully. The service was excellent, as well.

Pros: Upscale chef-quality food, All vegan, Excellent service

Cons: Somewhat expensive, Would like more low carbohydrate choices

Pretty Good Lasagna - Edit

I finally got the chance to have lunch at what I was told was one of the top vegan restaurants in New York City.My waitress was very kind and helpful.After carefully looking at the menu, I decided on the lasagna. The portion size was perfect for me, as I was hungry. I thought it was good, but I have had better vegan lasagnas. I felt it was a bit too heavy and I think it would have been much better had they put tomato sauce all over the dish. I did enjoy the taste.I'll have to try the other dishes when I go back.

Pros: nice atmosphere
