Cafe Petisco Returns as All Vegan ‘Petisco Vegano’ on East Broadway
After a four-month hiatus, the green revolution is complete at 189 East Broadway.
Petisco Vegano, the next chapter in the life of Cafe Petisco, is now operational. It debuted yesterday after a short friends and family period.
While still serving Mediterranean fare, the menu is now completely vegan, as previously reported. It offers faux shawarma and crab cakes, mushroom tacos, gluten free macaroni and cheese, and falafel. There is also a full breakfast menu and cocktails.
The corner of East Broadway and Jefferson Street has been dark since March. At the time, the restaurant announced that a collapsed wall in the basement forced the closure. Upon closer inspection, though, it was likely more about a failed Health Department inspection. Public records show that Cafe Petisco was ordered shut after an inspection on March 29 yielded 43 violation points.
