David Duchovny's Favorite NYC Eatery: Vegan Hot Spot Candle Cafe
Actor David Duchovny may not be vegan, but that doesn’t stop him from feasting regularly on vegan foods at Candle Cafe on the east side and on the west side.
The actor was asked by The Gothamist if he has any “favorite” places in New York City, his home town. Duchovny responded, “Well I grew up there so I got a million “only in New York” stories, but … right now I’m a big Candle Cafe guy. My daughter’s gone vegan recently and we like Candle Cafe, on the East and West side. So maybe I’ll get a free piece of tofu out of that plug.”
As someone who dines at Candle Cafe regularly, I can stand behind Duchovny on this one. Whether it’s their Cajun Seitan Sandwich or their Paradise Casserole, you can’t go wrong.
The Candle restaurants (there are three of them) in NYC seem to be a favorite for many celebs. Alicia Silverstone adores Candle 79. So does Kristen Bell. And I’ve seen “Law and Order” star Sam Waterston indulging in their vegan delicacies.
As for free tofu, we think the actor can probably afford to pay full price.
