Sacred Chow re-opened a few months ago on Sullivan Street as a vegan restaurant specializing in delicious tapas. I've eaten there alone, with friends and taken out from Sacred Chow many times and have not been disappointed at all with anything. I've had several of their desserts (cupcakes, pear bread pudding, pumpkin pie) and they've all been delicious enough to make me do the "are you sure it's vegan?" double-take. They have a hummus of the day every day and each one I've tried (spanish, dreamy tahini, garlic & herbs, and beet hummus) has been exceptional. The hummus is served with the yummiest crostini. Alternately, you can get the same yummy crostini with the sunflower lentil pate. The other truly delicious addictive tapas, which is unfortunately a special tapas, is the cornmeal crusted brussels sprouts. It's dishes like these that will take brussels sprouts from the butt of jokes to the center of the plate. Their weekend brunch is not to be missed. There's a varied menu that includes bana bread french toast, tofu scramble and the most excellent biscuits & gravy I've ever had (and I've eaten alot of vegan biscuits & gravy). Bonus Points: Sacred Chow serves excellent beer including Magic Hat and Rogue. They also have dairy milk available for people (like my mom) who prefer it in their coffee.

Simply great tasting, simply hip and simply amazing. Great food, AMAZING brownies. Comfortable atmosphere, a little cramped, but, hey, get to know the people to your left and right. Maybe they'll let you taste a bite of their pesto tofu. Worth the money, and the service is great, nice and not to mension really cute.

What a wonderful find....A quaint lovely discovery with excellent food, affordable prices,helpful, efficient staff, and an unusual atmosphere. But the FOOD...WOW...GREAT ! And Healhy, too! Meatball subs, cutlets, sandwiches, soups...lAll delicious, kosher, healthy, and vegan too!....But it's the baked goods that are to die for.... orange chocolate chip cookies, unbelieveable chocolate brownies, muffins, pound cake, and of course, smoothies of every berry you can name. Once you try it, you'll be a regular.

This place is a hole in the wall that is worth the trek. I went with my husband and we ate like royalty. The service was amazing and the waitress was personable. I am a newbie in veganism and a veteran in vegetarianism. I love this place and suggest it to everyone who is looking for healthy and interesting food.

The berry smoothie is the best in the city. The meatball sub is really good too. Nice atmosphere. Great selection.

This place used to charge by the weight, which made the delicious food practical. I used to go there all the time. Now, their prices are by container (small vs. large) and not reasonable at all. The food is now priced between $3.95 - 5.95 for a small container (think a small, shallow container of cole slaw that you'd get at a local deli) and to make a meal out of it, you'd need to get more than one dish. Also, they serve leftovers of their cooked foods and baked goods. Not a big deal to me, but announce them as such and charge less. They used to have a "day old" basket for their baked goods, but they routinely serve day olds at full price. Not cool.

Oh yum. I'm omnivorous, but I go to this great little place all the time...the sinner bars and nougatines are the most wonderously decadent chocolate bars in the world...you'd never know that most of this food isn't packed with delicious unhealthy things. The fresh-squeezed organic juices are among the nicest in the city, and the staff is friendly, indulgent and generous.
