“It's been a tough year for New York, and restaurants have taken a big hit. We’re looking into the future and are committed to our vision of sharing plant-based food with our community. I saw a need for vegan comfort food, especially amid the ongoing pandemic, and wanted to bring my take on that to NYC,” Willow chef and owner, Guy Vaknin, told VegOut.
The new all-vegan eatery will offer dishes like porcini chick’n marsala, cheeseburger sliders, and steak frites. In addition to savory bites, desserts like a vanilla bean cashew cheesecake and bananas Foster cake will also be up for grabs. Look for drinks like fresh juices made with carrot, apple, ginger, and coconut!
Willow is located at 199 8th Avenue and will be open for takeout and delivery 7 days a week from 11:30am-10pm. Delivery will be offered by Postmates, Uber Eats, GrubHub, Seamless, and Doordash. Orders can also be placed directly through the restaurant by calling or visiting their website.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
