Head over to 449 W. 19th St. in the Heights and you'll find Verdine, a new vegan spot.

Executive chef Stephanie Hoban opened this lunch spot after testing the market in a food truck for the last few years. The brick and mortar eatery offers a vegan menu that reflects the mantra, "Eat with a purpose."

Look for mac n cheese from the appetizer menu, made with nut-free vegetable-based cheese sauce. Main courses selections include the Krabby Patty, made from jackfruit and artichokes, as well as a Bistro Patty made from  organic lentils, walnuts and mushrooms. (Check out the full menu here.)
