If you subscribe to the Monday Campaigns' "Meatless Monday" mindset, where you forgo meat once a week for health reasons, you don't have to slave in the kitchen for a plant-based Monday night meal: Many of the city's chefs are getting on board the vegetarian wagon.
“Meatless Monday is expanding our clientele, challenging our cooks, and supporting our local growers," says Jason Weiner of Almond, who offered Meatless Monday in his Bridgehampton restaurant last year and now has it at his 22nd Street eatery. "Put simply, Meatless Mondays is win, win, win. In retrospect, I have no idea why the heck it took me so long to get on board."
