More than its name implies, this is also a vegan buffet restaurant with many soul food style choices, all sold by weight, except the desserts which are sold separately. I'm vegan but the 2 people who were with me are not. No matter, we all agreed that the entrees, from " bbq chicken," "meats" and "mac 'n cheese" to collard greens and beans were very good. For me, however, it was heaven, having so many choices and so much variety of really tasty, well prepared food. And, the staff was extremely friendly, the place clean and well run and....the desserts delicious (the blueberry "cheesecake" was excellent; the best I've had in 30 years!). Seating is limited but a few minutes is all it took to get seated.

NYC has lots of vegetarian and vegan restaurants, many of them excellent--but with such high prices that I have to think very seriously about returning. The Uptown Juice Bar should be renamed: VEGAN DELIGHT!! Of course, there are numerous colorful:juice concoctions- all healthy and popular. But head to the back of the restaurant and you will find a mouth-watering buffet of TOTALLY VEGAN DISHES! From 'chicken-less' curried chicken drumsticks to rice and beans, and collard greens, I could not fill my container fast enough. The food is sold by weight-and there are no frills here and only a few tables. Forget atmosphere... If it's good vegan food you're after, investigate this spot in Harlem.

I had a great juice on a hot day. It was a real juice. I watched a young woman make it and it was huge for the price
