Red Bamboo

Jason Wong’s Red Bamboo, the sister to the vegetarian restaurant by the same name in Manhattan’s West Village, specializes in Caribbean and Soul Food-style vegetarian dishes that taste like the real McCoy. The space, now expanded, boasts two full bars, two stages, patio seating and an upstairs deck.

Their “soul chicken” is a registered trademark: Cajun-flavored soy chicken cutlet breaded with “panko” (Asian-style breadcrumbs) and served with a hickory-smoked Vidalia dressing. There’s also jerk “chicken” and buffalo barbecue “wings.”

“The ‘mango chicken’ is the most popular dish,” said host Alonzo Williams, “especially with brown rice.” There’s an international twist to the cuisine: teriyaki “chicken,” vegetable tempura, and Philly cheese “steak” can all be found on the menu. Many of the selections are vegan and the menu notes when milk or eggs are used, with a choice of dairy or non-dairy cheese. You’re in no danger of masticating tasteless alfalfa sprouts in this swanky veggie bar and lounge. Hours: Monday-Wednesday, 12 pm-11 pm; Thursdays, 12 pm-12 am; Fridays, 12 pm-2 am; Saturdays, 11 pm-2 am; Sundays, 11 am-11 pm.
