Just can’t believe how quickly we got from Thanksgiving to Christmas week. Weren’t we just selling pumpkin pies and pumpkin lattes and sweeping leaves back out the door every time it opened? Since then we’ve had two snowstorms, a staff party, some killer Blue Plate and Seitan Cutlet specials, more media coverage for accepting bitcoin and got all decorated for the winter holidays.
Here’s what you’ll want to know about for the upcoming Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day holidays at Veggie Galaxy.
We ordered (finally!) our first batch of official VEGGIE GALAXY tee-shirts. We think they’re great and hope that you’ll love them and buy them! They’re 100% cotton American Apparel shirts, printed locally and available in sizes S-M-L-XL, for just $20. Currently you can get them at the front Counter at Veggie Galaxy, but very soon they will also be available on our website . A great gift for VG fans!
We’ve also stocked up on our shiny, attractive gift cards – - the perfect holiday gift for new vegetarians/vegans, Veggie Galaxy fans, local college students, babysitters, or anyone you think might enjoy a meal (or a cake!) at Veggie Galaxy. These gift cards are also redeemable at our sister restaurant in Harvard Square, Veggie Planet. The gift cards are available in any amount and can be purchased at the front Counter or by telephone (617-497-1513), or at Veggie Planet.
Chef Sam has been busy developing an incredible menu for our 2nd Annual NEW YEAR’S EVE “FINER DINER” celebration. On this very special night we turn from our usual classic diner fare to more refined/complex/upscale dishes and offer you the opportunity to celebrate with us, where you know everyone in your party will be able to eat and enjoy…whether they are vegetarian or vegan or omnivore.
There will be two seatings; one at 6:30 p.m. and one at 8:30 p.m. We strongly suggest that you make a reservation, as we sold out last year. Just stop in at the restaurant or call us at (617) 497-1513. $50 per person includes complimentary Champagne or sparkling cider (but not tax or gratuity). Check out the menu, below (you can click on it to make it larger).
On New Year’s Day we’ll be here ready to revive you with our usual menu of diner favorites and breakfast-all-day…and some good coffee. Special New Year’s Day hours below.
