Healthy and Vegan New York Eats Part 2. New York City really is a mecca for foodies so there is no way I could get away with just one post on finding healthy, vegan and gluten free eats here. The city is a hub for creative cuisine as well as eco-friendly places to stay while visiting so without further a due, let’s get going!
First things first, where to stay. While NYC is known for it’s incredible hotels, from chic to posh, trendy to classy, The Barclay Intercontinental Hotel is a city staple. Once part of the Pan Am empire, The Barclay showcases NY class with fabulous progressive green initiatives. Located in mid-town, this historic hotel takes every opportunity to be green. From having their own rooftop bee hive and organic garden as well as doing their own, in-house composting that goes out to local parks to serving local only produce and food and using green lighting in every hotel fixture, The Barclay combines the best of both worlds.
The staff is fabulous and incredibly helpful, the “greeness” of the hotel unmatched. A bit of old school, big city luxury with all the amenities and accoutrements of the hip green hotels. The location is perfect for getting in and around anywhere in Manhattan and surrounding Burroughs in addition to having a comfortable stay and a clear conscience!
