Bliss serves up both vegetarian and vegan food all day. Their brunch is delicious: the Breakfast Burrito is an excellent choice, and they only use organic eggs. For lunch or dinner their gigantic salads can't be beat. Throw it back with a Spirit Juice (carrot, beet, lemon and ginger) and you've reached healthy nirvana.They also have a more upscale restaurant in Williamsburg, Bliss Grand, which serves up vegan food. Feast on Senegalese Peanut Stew served w/ quinoa, Sweet Corn Empanadas with margarita cashew creme, and other entrees.
