© VSPOT Cafe and Tapas
Brothers Danny and Alex Carabano and their friend Steven Simicich founded VSPOT Café & Tapas. They cater to the vegan diner with offerings of the Colombian variety. There are three locations with the East Village café housing the largest menu of the bunch, serving lunch, dinner, and brunch on the weekends. They get most of their acclaim from their traditional empanadas such as the Columbian packed with potato, carrot, onion, cilantro, Latin seasoned Seitan and served with fresh guacamole, but they serve much more. Arepas, tostadas, quesadillas, tacos, burritos, wraps, burgers, and house-made specialty entrees such as their Bandeja Paisa are also on the menu.
