About: Blossom Du Jour is the largest vegan chain of restaurants in NYC (that isn’t falafel or hummus) and this newest location will serve as it’s flagship. The original flagship on 10th Avenue and 22nd Street is now closed (though Blossom Bakery remains on 10th Avenue). The new location has 15 seats with a large kitchen (by NYC standards). The look is sleek and modern with lots of sunlight coming in.
The all vegan menu features items:
Breakfast: Savory scramble wrap, croissants, coffee cake, organic coffee & tea
BDJ Buffalo Wrap with soy tenders, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, tomato, carrots, lettuce.
Midtown Melt with cajun spiced seitan, v-cheese, agave guacamole, lettuce, chipotle aioli.
There will also be a great smoothie/shake menu, and soft serve ice cream (ice cream starts this summer with flavors like butterscotch, cookie dough and chocolate). Smoothies and shake flavor include the BLUE VELVET (acai with banana, raspberries, soy milk and vanilla), THRIVE (kale, almond butter, agave, banana, pea protein) and BUTTERFINGER SHAKE, BANANA STRAWBERRY SHAKE.
FROM OWNER PAMELA ELIZABETH:
In the Fall of 2005, I never dreamed that the idea of opening a small vegan cafe would lead to the opening of a charming gourmet vegan restaurant situated in a NYC Chelsea townhouse. The acceptance and success of Blossom Restaurant confirmed what I pray for everyday, that people will choose not to eat animals if offered satisfying, healthful plant based options. I feel a remarkable sense of responsibility to continue on this path, with a strong desire to take vegan food as far as possible and to me, this means making it accessible to the masses. The accessibility I’m speaking of is quick service edibles aka fast food — vegan fast food!
Blossom Du Jour, Shrewd FastFood is in the extraordinary position to make a positive impact on the fast food industry by offering food and beverage choices that are healthful, environmentally conscious, and prepared quickly and efficiently. We put a vegan spin on familiar classics and comfort foods, as well offer innovative vegan creations that are perfect for folks on the go! Most importantly, we are in the extraordinary position to make a profound impact on so many lives, both animal and human.
