We’re honestly surprised it took this long for the NYC vegetarian empire to settle in Brooklyn. You know the drill: come here in your gym clothes for veggie market plates, salads that aren’t sad, or lemon pepper chicken sandwiches. While we have your attention, we’d like to remind you that it’s scientifically impossible to tell the difference between gym clothes and lazy clothes. Your secret is safe with us.

More spots in DUMBOSee more
Pedro’s is a casual Mexican spot in Dumbo that’s a good option for snacks and margaritas after work.
Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Smile To Go Dumbo
Smile to Go is a counter-service version of the original cafe in NoHo that’s good for a quick snack and coffee while you walk around Dumbo.

Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
Keens is a Midtown steakhouse with tons of history, but even if you don’t care about Albert Einstein’s smoking pipe, you’ll eat some great meat.
Suggested by our writers
Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails. It also has a great back patio.
