Maybe your parents are taking you out for your big day. Or maybe you want your great uncle to think you’re mostly stable after you left him that questionable voicemail last year. Either way, Blossom is a great spot in Chelsea to have a vegan dinner where no one will have to yell to be heard. So get some lasagna or seitan piccata in the oversized-den of a dining room, and be grateful that your great uncle is asking for your opinion about that New Yorker profile rather than an updated five-year plan.

No bigger than a subway car, Socarrat packs the majority of their patrons on bar stools around a communal table. The idea here is that they do paella the way it's done in Spain, as one big family. In such a small space, keeping the drool inside your mouth while you wait for your food is no easy task.
