It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of NYC’s top vegan establishment, The Cinnamon Snail. The Cinnamon Snail started as a food truck, opened a brick and mortar location at Penn Station while still doing events with the truck, and as of today they have opened up another location!
This new location, 70 Pine Street in the Financial District in downtown Manhattan, is part of the City Acres food hall. Also inside City Acres is legendary vegan sushi concept Beyond Sushi, and Juice Brothers, a pressed juice concept from Amsterdam. Non-veg options in the food hall will include Vanessa Dumplings, and Artichoke Pizza, who also both have vegan and vegetarian options.
Like all of their other locations, this new spot will be Kosher Certified, and will be 100% plant based, while still remaining absurdly decadent and creative.
And just in case you think you’ve already had everything the Snail has to offer, this menu will have brand new and exclusive items! A few all- time-favorite items will be available at all locations. Chef Adam Sobel’s signature Korean BBQ Seitan (with house made kimchi, smoked chili grilled seitan, and greens, on a chili butter grilled tortilla), Maple Mustard tempeh sandwiches, and the Cinnamon Snail’s legendary burgers will of course be part of the selection.
Some of the menu items that are exclusive to this location are:
Gochujang Glazed Crispy Seitan
With kimchi, pickled red onions, arugula and sriracha mayo on a grilled pretzel bun
Peking Seitan Fries
With tamarind plum glazed seitan, scallions, pickled red onions, wasabi mayo and black sesame gomasio
Monster Style Breakfast Sandwich
Scrambled tofu, smoked coconut “bacon”, marinated kale, hollandaise, and pickled red onions, and “everything bagel” seasoning on grilled homemade challah bread
Almond Challah French Toast
Smoked almonds, maple raspberry sauce, almond and cinnamon bun glaze
Cambodian Crispy Tofu
With tamarind plum reduction, smoked chili roasted peanuts, umeboshi plum marinated cucumbers, baby arugula, and wasabi mayo on a grilled pretzel bun
Of course, The Cinnamon Snail will offer a huge selection of award winning donuts, and other pastries at this location. Flavors change seasonally, and at the whim of the culinary basket case at the helm of the Cinnamon Snail’s multidimensional flavor ship.
And for anyone in Central PA who is dying to grab a bite from the Cinnamon Snail, they can usually be found at the Bethlehem Vegfest (Aug. 26th this year). But make sure you get there early to avoid the lines!
Now please excuse me while I go plan my next trip to NYC.
