Petisco Vegano Opens This Week at 189 East Broadway
If you’ve been missing Cafe Petisco, the popular neighborhood spot on East Broadway, you’re in luck. A revamped version of the Mediterranean restaurant is reopening tomorrow (Tuesday). But there’s a new twist: the all-day casual eatery is now called Petisco Vegano.
That’s right, Petisco has gone vegan. No more lamb chops, skirt steak or chicken skewers. The new menu features a “Beyond Burger,” a fried coconut tofu sandwich and a gluten free version of mac and cheese. The much-loved Petisco falafel pita is still an option.
This past spring, Cafe Petisco closed, and signage went up suggesting that a collapsed wall in the basement had forced the closure. Renovations have been taking place in recent weeks. There’s new branding on Petisco’s Facebook page, encouraging customers to, “dine with compassion.” Posted hours are 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Petisco Vegano is located at 189 East Broadway.
