City’s Best Vegan Pasta
Pasta’s mild taste and texture lends itself to simple, easy enhancements, making it a perfect foundation for a variety of different flavors. All too often though, cooks lean on the easy fallback of sausage, peppers, or cream to carry the flavor of their pasta dishes. In the hands of an expert chef, vegan pasta can introduce a new level of creativity and innovation!
Peppery or bold, bright or savory, pasta is so versatile that diners enjoy it throughout their meal, either as an appetizer or main course.
The appetizer to the meal is much like the first note of a song; it introduces the main event, sets the tone, and creates a foundation on which the rest can build.
At Willow, we take pride in creating an inclusive, comforting atmosphere for every guest. We start every bite with a base in classic bistro dining, then elevate each bite with a fresh, sophisticated flare. Allow us to start your meal with a pasta appetizer fitting for the rest of our meal: the casual comfort of vegan truffle mac and “cheese.”
Savory and salty all at once, this vegan take on one of America’s most nostalgic dishes will pull you in without weighing you down. Come down to our Chelsea location or place an order to go to sample the flavor for yourself!
At Willow, we guarantee variety: in flavors, choices, and appearance. Our entree menu promises something for everyone, including three distinct, delicious pasta options.
For a light, seafood-inspired pasta dish, try our “Scallop” Cacio e Pepe. This entree starts with perfectly cooked linguine pasta, tossed in a creamy “parmesan” sauce, cracked black pepper, and extra virgin olive oil. In place of scallops, our chefs use chewy, delicious oyster mushrooms to create a similar texture while enhancing your dish with a uniquely earthy flavor. A light addition of wakame adds brightness and creative flair to this bowl that you won’t soon forget!
Want something more hearty for your dinner? Look no further than our take on the traditional spaghetti and meatballs. Our house made white wine marinara sauce is supplemented with green thyme and ripe cherry tomatoes, fresh off the vine. Impossible meatballs add that rich, filling element that keeps guests coming back for more.
Last but certainly not least is our eggplant lasagna, yet another elevated version of a classic favorite. As always, our chefs use only the freshest ingredients in this dish: eggplant, basil, and thyme. Hand-rolled lasagna, Impossible meat, herb “ricotta,” and our crowd-pleasing marinara make up the delectable layers of this unforgettable dish.
By utilizing vegan favorites and creative new ingredients alike, our chefs are able to transform each bite into something new and spectacular!
