Creative & Nourishing Animal-free Meals
While located outside of the central tourist areas, I advise that Candle 79 is well worth the short trip to the Upper East Side for outstanding vegan cuisine. They feature a chef-driven menu with sustainable ingredients that are locally-sourced. The restaurant is known for nourishing meals that are animal-free and very creative.
I’ve ran seven marathons since moving to NYC eight years ago, including New York and Chicago several times. I’m very involved with the local running community as a run leader—helping runners plot new routes and assisting out of town guests with questions and local fun. I began running in 2014 and will continue to do so as it is my happy place. I’m a career dancer who also runs a local tour company that specializes in walking tours of New York neighborhoods, as well as advising about what to do and where to eat.
