Other things, surely.

It's opening Wednesday in Soho.

    Over the last few years, New York’s trendier precincts have been hit with a plant-based wave of fake-meat barbecuers, coconut-yogurt purveyors, and hippie-bowl cafés.

    How is this L.A.-inspired, “accidentally vegetarian” all-day café different from all others? It comes from Danny Meyer’s former director of business development and pledges to donate a percentage of sales to the Door, a job-training organization. There will be California wines and sandwiches like the Mushreuben, which is, as it sounds, a Reuben made from maitakes, plus sauerkraut, Peppadew peppers, and Swiss cheese.
