Though you may groan at the thought of eating anything other than a burger made with real meat, we promise that the vegan burger at Blossom Du Jour will not disappoint. In fact, it tastes so real that you might not be able to tell the difference between this and a real burger.

Along with the Burger Bowl, Blossom Du Jour offers three different burger options: the Skyscraper (housemade bean pattie, mushroom bacon, v-cheese, onion rings, lettuce, tomato, pickles, special sauce), the Quinoa Burger (housemade quinoa, kale, bean & sweet potato pattie, caramelized onions, lettuce, lemon-rosemary sauce), and the Beet Burger (housemade beet pattie, lettuce, horseradish v-mayo, tomato, gluten free pullman bread).

Since Blossom Du Jour emerged as a response to the need for “alternative fast food” options, it’s not surprising that they have some of the most real-tasting, vegan burgers around. Opened in 2010, the restaurant serves 100% vegan food with the goal of making minimal impact on the environment and animals, while still serving delicious, nutritious, and fun meals.

Whether or not you’re vegan or vegetarian, we highly recommend swapping this vegan option out for a real burger when you’re in the mood. You’ll be eating a delicious burger that tastes real, with the added, guilt-free bonus of supporting animals and the environment.

Blossom Du Jour has locations in Chelsea, Midtown West, the Upper West Side, and Columbus Circle.
