Meant to post this one awhile ago, but a few months ago I checked out Sans, a relatively new vegan pop-up restaurant in Cobble Hill from an Eleven Madison Park veteran. (Sans means “without” in French, thus…this place is sans meat or dairy products.)
But this is not Eleven Madison Park—at least not in terms of pricing, table cloths, and general stuffiness. This is definitely a neighborhood dinner spot, although the wine list makes it worthy for a regular place to drop in for a drink during the week.
The only remnant of Eleven Madison Park might be the way the food is presented—it's not quite tweezer-level (certainly not the smashed patatas bravas with pimento sauce), but the inspiration on the plating is certainly there.
And please pardon the quality of the food photos in this one given it's rather dark inside once the sun goes down, and there's already enough of a stigma about vegan/vegetarian food, so I wouldn't want to add to that. Everything we ate—especially the charred onion with smoked onion sauce, ricotta, and crouton—was delicious.
