|What a great bunch of gals!|
Wow! What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. While Candle 79 certainly lived up to their reputation of a premiere Vegan restaurant I have to say it was the company that made the day so special.
Here is a sample of some of the vegan delights we sampled at lunch:
|Black bean and pumpkin seed burger with poletna fries.|
|Chili grilled tempeh.|
|Peanut butter bliss. It was bliss.|
I must tell you that I am still dreaming of the Peanut Butter Bliss. It may be the best thing I have ever eaten!!
I can't wait to get back into New York. I will visit Candle 79 again and can only hope to have such great company to share the good eats with next time!
