If you visit NYC a want to check out the latest vegan restaurants that are shaping the cuisine, then make your way to Washington Sqaure Park in lower Manhattan. The West 4th Street Station can be reached by the A, C, D, E, and F trains. The park is an enjoyable place to relax in Greenwich Village before you start eating. When Manhattan was smaller in size, the area was used as a local military training ground. In the 1960s, it was the center of the burgeoning artistic culture of the city. Now the surround area hosts enough vegan restaurants to keep you busy for your entire time.

My second trip to NYC using the Treatmo app to pay for food, juices, smoothies, and desserts start today. Going wallet free while dining elevates the experience to a social interaction at innovative plant-based restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It's fun and friends can participate on the Treat Feed (or news feed) in the app. See what I discover in real time. Don't have time to join, you can view my favorites by downloading Treatmo and searching 'MakeSimpleVegan Treats'. Lots a great treats! Here is a sample:
In late December, I travelled to NYC to experience the full power of the Treatmo app. I wanted to discover amazing plant-based food in fun neighborhoods and, most importantly, not carry a wallet. This mobile phone technology liberates people from searching for ATMs or carrying credit cards when they want to eat out.
I also wanted to discover unique places without spending a lot of time doing internet searches. Lastly, I wanted my friends at home to participate - to see what was happening in real time and have the chance to purchase food for me even as they sat in front of the TV or at the office.
Treatmo made it possible and convenient and created an entirely new dining reality while in Manhattan and Brooklyn, both centers food innovation. When you have a chance, you can read about my food trip post on the Treatmo website here. Have a great day!
