My friend and celebrity chef, Chloe Coscarelli, just opened up her very first restaurant, in the West Village. By Chloe is centered around comfort food that many vegans have to miss out on, like hearty burgers and even mac n’ cheese. Since the restaurant opened about 3 weeks ago, the line has been out the door with locals and fans who have traveled just to get their hands on a delicious locally sourced vegan treat. I personally am not vegan, in fact, I love meat and am usually hesitant toward vegan versions of meaty foods, but I trust everything Chloe makes. She, of course, did not disappoint this time around. My favorite meal so far is the classic burger, air-baked fries and a cold brew Stumptown coffee. Chef Chloe started out as a vegan pastry chef (she won Cupcake Wars!), so the grab-n-go baked treats are her specialty. I have actually dreamed about her chocolate chip cinnamon espresso cookies and banana bourbon ice cream. I highly suggest vegans and non-vegans to go try out this new little place in Village out. It is even open late so you can satisfy your late night cravings or get that late dinner you have been waiting after a long day of work.
By Chloe. is located at the corner of MacDougal and Bleecker at 185 Bleecker St.
As for my outfit:
If you have known me for a few years, you probably recognize this t-shirt. I bought it at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in LA probably 5 years ago and have gotten so much use out of it, it’s ridiculous. It’s now that perfect worn-in soft cotton and still goes with everything. I will probably still be wearing when I’m a crazy 100 year old woman with a fabulous sequin skirt.
This skirt is also a favorite piece but newer. Banana Republic is one of the few stores that sells petites, and I have been wanting a pencil skirt for forever. It was more than I was willing to spend at the time it came out so I admired the perfect skirt from afar. As soon as it went on sale, it had to be mine.
