New York, New York: 20 Favorite Meals by Neighborhood

Three years spent perched in this challenging, sharp, singular, gem of a city. Here are twenty of my favorite vegan meals that are available on any given day at (almost) every hour, sorted by 'hood. As much as I like trying new things, I have been known to have "an order" meaning- I have some serious favorites. This list is by no means comprehensive!
