I came here the day I officially moved to the city, in the midst of running around looking at apartments with my boyfriend. We were starving and needed a quick bite - this is a great spot for that since it's small, with minimal bar stool seating, but quick. I've been to the original Blossom Restaurant, which is a fine dining experience, but having just as delicious vegan fast food at your fingertips is so refreshing coming from a city where you have to search high and low for a good vegan meal! No offense, Boston.

I asked the staff for a recommendation and they suggested the Midtown Melt, which seemed to be a popular choice since the other customers who ordered after me got the same thing. My boyfriend went for the Blossom Bean Burger.

I loved my sandwich - Midtown Melt is made with Cajun spiced seitan, vegan cheese, agave guacamole, lettuce, and chipotle alioli served on a focaccia-style square bread. The Blossom Bean Burger is a house-made burger with tomato, guacamole, and lettuce. 

I enjoyed my meal so much I went back for more the next day, and ordered another staff suggestion - the Un-Chicken Avocado Griller. This one was equally as tasty. It was served cold vs. hot like the Midtown Melt. It comes with grilled rosemary lemon mock chicken, avocado, vegan pesto mayo, and lettuce, on the same bread as the Midtown Melt.

The sandwiches are on the pricier end for what they're calling "shrewd fast food" so I won't be visiting everyday, but it's nice to know there are quality vegan sandwiches located throughout the city. If you're in a rush you can pick up pre-made wraps, side dishes and salads from the cooler. They also sell their own juices.
