Star Trek Vegan Café to Land in NY

Brick-and-mortar eatery Ten Forward will be the next generation of Ithaca's mobile vegan food vendor Star Truck.

Vegan café Ten Forward will open its doors in Ithaca, NY on March 24. The café will bear the same Star Trek theme as local vegan mobile vendor Star Truck with a plant-based comfort food menu—consisting of a variety of baked goods, banana-based milkshakes, soups, and sandwiches (a Reuben and Bahn Mi are in the works). The menu will feature local products from Ithaca Tofu and Susie’s Seitan. Ten Forward will occupy the space of a shuttered café above Autumn Leaves bookstore and owner Tammie Olsefski promises a cozy space where patrons can live long and prosper. “I hope to do things like game nights, and there’s also a lot of meetups that already happen there which I’d like to continue—there’s a knitting group,” Olsefski said. “I’m also hoping that the café can become a non-alcoholic space for the LGBTQ community to hang out.” In addition to Ten Forward, the east coast is in store for several unique vegan eateries, including butcher shop Monk’s Vegan Delicatessen and Kitchen that is slated to open this spring in Brooklyn.
