The V Spot
Posted by Vegan Cookie on 06/25/2007
I have a new favorite restaurant, it's called the V Spot and you must go there... now! It's in Brooklyn and is well worth the trek if you think it's too far away. It's a cozy joint with a big selection and get this, a friendly wait staff (something you're hard pressed to find at pretty much ever other vegan restaurant in NYC). Two words - chicken burrito. It's so amazing. It's currently my favorite thing to eat and I could, without a doubt eat it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner, dinner and dessert... yeah, it's that good. Everything I've tried is amazing (chicken parm, penne ala vodka, buffalo wings). The guac and chip appetizer is hands down the best guac and chips I've ever eaten, and believe me I'm quite the expert.

I went here last week for brunch and was pleasantly surprised. When they first opened, they had a rather basic menu and I heard mixed reviews. However, when I went on Sunday, I found it hard to decide what I wanted since there were a lot of options. I ended up with the tofu scramble and a pancake on the side. Both were very good. The garden out back was really pleasant and I can't wait to go again. If you had a negative experience here before, I suggest giving it another shot.

I live in Brooklyn and am always complaining of the scarcity of vegetarian restaurants so when I heard about this place in Park Slope I was more than happy to give it a try. I ordered a rice and vegetables plate with tofu and black beans. Everything on the plate was soggy and bland, as in no seasoning whatsoever. The rice and beans were maybe the worst I ever tasted. I hardly ate any of it. Their desserts are made by Vegan Treats, which i would normally like except that the oreo cake that I had tasted somewhat stale, and my guess is that it had been sitting out for a while. Sad to say, it wasn't worth the visit.

This place is definitely not worth the money! And the food is only marginally good.

I've been a vegan for over 10 years and know the best places in the city . . . this counts as one of them! Particularly if you know what to order . . . we are addicted to the buffalo chicken wings, the chicken cutlets and the strawberry shortcake . . . the nachos, too. And seriously, the strawberry shortcake . . . We just moved to Park Slope and I thought I would miss my favorite Manhattan vegan eateries so thank goodness for the V Spot! I'm sorry that they don't have a wine menu, but perhaps one day . . .

granted, it was snowing and i live on a small, relatively hard-to-find street. but i gave excellent directions, and with that said, we waited over 2 hours for delivery. we called twice. apparently the guy tried to find my place but couldn't, so he brought the food back to the restaurant. then he came back and still took 45 minutes. we called again and said we didn't want the 2-hour old cold food. he convinced us to take the food anyway, because he didn't want it to go to waste. i liked that so i said ok but wouldn't pay for it. we got penne with vodka sauce and the nachos. my friend said the penne was the worst she's ever had. my nachos, albeit cold, were somehow still crunchy and tasted just okay. overall, def would not give it another shot. even though props to them for giving us free food and not being wasteful and being super-nice about it.

The buffalo chicken is delicious, great texture, hot sauce, and they are filling too. Also, the BLT is amazing and has given me an appreciation for tempeh. The staff is not attentive, and once a few of the guys stood holding the door open and letting all of the heat out and the freezing cold winter air in. They are annoying, but I am addicted to the food so, carry-out it is. Eat there, so they stay open and I can keep eating there!
