Downtown in the Wall Street area, I've got 2 new vegan choices. There's Pump and Switch. I know that sounds like a porno, but it's the names of 2 new take out joints. Pump emphasizes health food and is set up like Chipotle with an assembly line of burrito, salad, rice bowl options. The best thing is that Pump has baked tofu and vegetarian chili.New kid on the block Switch has pressed sandwiches and lots of vegan side items, like Israeli cous cous, grape tomato salad with basil, and killer homemade regular and sweet potato chips. The vegan sammich option is the Casablanca which is a pressed sammy with chickpeas, roasted red peppers, watercress, and a garlicky eggplant spread. I've eaten this about 3 times this week! Each sandwich comes with a little side of lime-mint edamame.
