Tips / Other

Vegans and vegetarians can enjoy a loaded pizza, hearty sandwich, filling “steak” and dessert as much as the next guy. Being the foodie city that it is, Philadelphia has ample options for a vegan-only dinner, dessert and everything in between.

Blackbird Pizzeria

Stop in either of Blackbird Pizzeria’s locations and choose from a long list of vegetarian and vegan pies including the Haymaker, made with seitan sausage, vegetables and violife mozzarella. Opt for a calzone filled with violife mozzarella and tofu ricotta.

More in the mood for a filling sandwich? Try the seitan “chicken” parmesan, fried crispy with violife mozzarella and marinara sauce on a baguette, or opt for the Cubano — a citrus-marinated seitan with violife cheese, pickles, mustard, smoked tofu and seitan bacon on a baguette.

Charlie was a Sinner

Head to Center City’s bustling restaurant scene for Charlie was a Sinner’s creative vegan fare. The upscale bar and swanky restaurant offers plant-based small plates and unique drinks from silken tofu and mushroom ramen to potato gnocchi and roasted cauliflower steak.

Bar Bombón

Enjoy vegan Puerto Rican fare in a casual setting at Bar Bombón. The cozy space offers vegan tacos, empanadas and fresh juices. Stop in for a seat at the bar, or pop in the take-out window and dine on the go.

V Street

Enjoy happy hour cocktails, vegan bites and weekend brunch at V Street. The vegan cuisine is internationally inspired from the za’atar and Brussels sprout salad and Peruvian fries to the Korean fried tempeh tacos and sweet potato ice cream for dessert.

Under $100: Poble Nou, Barcelona

Just north of Barcelona’s bustling city center, the capital of Catalonia transitions from Gothic cathedrals, tiny alleyways and hordes of bike tours into a more livable neighborhood known as Poble Nou. Close to the coast, Metro-accessible and rife with local hang-out spots, this area has become a favorite of residents who seek solace from the masses of tourists that crowd the center.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Golden Circle Tour of Iceland

The small island nation of Iceland may have only one major “highway,” the 828-mile Route 1, better known as Ring Road because it navigates the entire perimeter of the country, but it can be difficult to traverse depending on weather conditions at particular times of the year. While a road trip around the island is a fantastic adventure that reveals unimaginably unique landscapes, it can be a considerable challenge for those self-identifying as anywhere from timid to even moderately adventurous in their travels. In these cases, a full-day Golden Circle tour is the perfect antidote to any FOMO experienced by foregoing the road trip.
