Brooklyn’s Perelandra Opens Plant-Based Kitchen and Juice Bar


Perelandra Natural Food Center, a store for organic and natural foods in Brooklyn Heights is opening its own kitchen and juice bar that will be entirely plant-based!

Opened in 1976, Perelandra is located at 175 Remsen Street in Brooklyn. The kitchen and juice bar, opening April 9, will include a plant-based menu with 95 percent certified organic ingredients.

The new addition will include a hot bar buffet, a sandwich counter, a kiosk for prepared meals, and a case for baked goods and pastries including treats like root vegetable muffins.

“This is the first major renovation Perelandra has done in close to 20 years,” said the store’s co-owner Allison Buckingham. “And we are so excited to bring an even bigger array of delicious, high-quality, organic foods to Brooklyn Heights.”

Here are some of the vegan menu items at Perelandra along with recipes you can make even if you’re not in Brooklyn.
