If you're taking a trip to the shops or museums on the Upper East Side, it's nice to know there's a 100% vegan restaurant nearby. The incredibly loyal clientele keeps Candle Cafe hopping at all times. Enjoy a tonic from the "farmacy," such as the immune-boosting, flu- and cold-fighting smoothie with ginger, orange, carrot, grapefruit and lemon. The menu is a kaleidoscope of ethnic favorites, from Southwestern chili to a Middle Eastern meze plate to an Asian-style ginger-miso stir-fry. The staff is friendly, making accommodations for special diets.
