t may look like a dive, but the Grasshopper will save you from scouring menus to find something that’s vegetarian or vegan. Here, everything is. The focus is Asian—the No-Name Special, for example, a vegan homage to General Tso’s chicken, made of battered and fried gluten covered in sweet-and-sour sauce and sesame seeds.
