VERY exciting news for vegans, foodies, or really anyone who wants to feel like a trendy millennial in New York: the popular plant-based restaurant By Chloe is opening on Thayer Street! On Tuesday, posters popped up advertising the opening of the chain in Au Bon Pain’s recently vacated space. With spots in New York, LA, and Boston, it’s a minor miracle that this hip spot chose to put down roots in our very own Thayer street. Including the recent additions of Insomnia Cookies and Durk’s BBQ and the upcoming opening of Den Den’s Korean Fried Chicken on Angell Street, Thayer and the surrounding streets are seriously stepping up their game.
Famous for options like the Guac burger, quinoa tacos, vegan mac n’ cheese, avocado toast (of course), and a variety of fresh juices, this highly-Instagrammable joint is a much-needed addition to the vegan options off campus. Recently named one of the best vegan restaurants in America by the Daily Mail, the restaurant has also received the honor of the best veggie burger in NYC. By Chloe is 100% vegan, and it also offers kosher, nut-free, soy-free, and gluten-free options. Notorious for its crazy-long lines, this spot is sure to be a hit. Once it opens, look out for an endless stream of #foodstagrams coming your way.
