FIT is very lucky to be surrounded by incredible restaurants within walking distance of campus. One of my favorite hotspots is By Chloe, an all vegan fast-casual restaurant located on 22nd St and 6th Avenue. When you read “vegan restaurant,” you may think you’re only getting salads and vegetables, however, By Chloe is the furthest thing from that. The menu does feature salads, but there are also burgers, desserts, and even vegan mac and cheese.
By Chloe has several locations and has been expanding throughout the city, with a location opening soon near Rockefeller Center! By Chloe doesn’t neglect the gluten-free folks either, with almost all menu items able to be modified to be gluten free! I highly recommend the Spicy Thai salad, smashed avocado toast, and chocolate chip cookie while you are there! It can be fairly busy around lunch time, especially on the weekends, but feel free to carry out and dine at the nearby Madison Square Park!
