It’s happening!! New York City’s very first vegan pop-up restaurant, Wildflower, will be open June 10, ll and 12, serving 28 courses of to-die-for plant-based gourmet.

Keeping things short and (deliciously) sweet, Wildflower will be located at 171 East Broadway for a limited time, offering intense combinations of flavors inspired by soul food, raw fusion, street food and more. Vegan chef and entrepreneur Ayinde Howell, founder of IEatGrass.com,  will be whipping up dishes like grilled bbq rubbed seitan brisket, dirty quinoa, seitan shwarma, churros and muffletas. Innovative specialty drinks such as white grape cucumber martinis and delicious desserts (hello Belgian beer floats!) will be available, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings Howell will impress with his specialty brunches, featuring his famous and much sought after mac & yease and a variety of unique waffle flavors–Reeses cup, mexican hot cocoa and orange creamsicle. If you aren’t drooling already (I know I am!) than there must be something seriously wrong with you.

Don’t miss the vegan event of the season–head on down to East Broadway this weekend! Be sure to make reservations, cause it’s going to be hoppin.’  Okay, back to daydreaming about waffles..
