Last month The Local introduced you to Gingersnap’s Organic, the vegan café that Jamie “Gingersnap” Graber, previously of  Live Live & Organic and Euphoria Loves Rawvolution (the Los Angeles location, not the East Village outpost), planned to open on East Seventh Street near Avenue A. A walk past the location reveals that it quietly opened earlier this week – it’s operating from noon till midnight daily, with delivery coming as soon as the shop acquires a bicycle this weekend.

In the open kitchen this afternoon was executive chef Scott Weingard, previously the chef at Pure Food & Wine and more recently of Angelica Kitchen and the now-shuttered Counter. Mr. Weingard also runs a Brooklyn-based vegan supper club, Nasturtium. He and his crew will be preparing the dishes on the menu below (click to see a larger version) and packaging them to-go. Or you can settle in at night, when b.y.o.b. is permitted. 130 East Seventh Street; (212)-533-9939.
