Caravan of Dreams has an amazing story! But before I get to that, I want to say that I loved nearly all their desserts. Yes! It’s been several years I haven’t visited the place. Then it was wonderful. I’ve tried several of their vegan dishes, mostly salads and green smoothies – all delicious. Oh, yes, I started saying that the restaurant has an awesome story. The inception of the restaurant was after a series of incidents that brought the owner to America. “The quiet summer dawn in Madrid was suddenly interrupted. A bomb-destroyed café bar ... one of its co-owners, slept quietly at home after a long night of work. It was 1976. Nothing was left. But the bomb did not destroy...” The rest of the riveting story can be read at: Caravan of Dreams: A revolutionary approach to lifestyle and food - http://www.thehealthydish.com/caravan-of-dreams/

I think this place is a bit of crap shoot. I got a fantastic Burrito Monoski (though extraordinarily expensive; $20)--but really one of the best that I've had and my boyfriend got (and the waiter recommended) the worst pasta dish I have ever experienced; or entree for that matter. It literally had no flavor. I would recommend before going ask around for good options, because it's pretty depressing to pay upwards of 18 dollars for an entree that slithers around on your plate with no flavoring. The greens were fantastic and very generous and the veggie juice frothy and delicious.

Caravan has nice atmosphere (with live music) and seems to have an innovative menu. That said, the service was a bit confused (they forgot at least one item we ordered, but still charged us for it), and many of the dishes seemed indistinguishable from one another. This was particularly true of their "live" dishes, which just seemed like glorified salads, more than anything else. I think their cooked dishes would be superior, based upon my experience with their paella (which was light and tasty). Their desserts were lacking, however; none of them, raw or cooked, grabbed my attention or seemed extraordinary. It might be better to go for lunch, at an odd hour, when the service will be less hurried and the food better prepared, perhaps.

This is my favorite place to go in this amazing city. I love it.. but i never let anyone with me order anything that is not live.. that is why i go there.. BUT the non live special of the day is always choice. When I go here I either order the salad or live sandwich. And the live peach cobbler to die for!

People seem to really rave about this place but I've been there a number of times and wasn't impressed. Everyone suggested the "chicken" nachos but they tasted pretty average to me, something I cold easily make at home. I've also had a raw salad that was pretty good (if you're into raw food), and a smoothie that was really small and not very flavorful.

I do, however, love the ambiance. The live music and the lighting is just right and if you're able to get a table outside, it's a lovely experience.

Vegan cuisine done right! A M A Z I N G ... Creative, delicious, healthy vegan cuisine with an ample selection of live food dishes. Some of the best food I have eaten in New York City. If food like this were everywhere, I think a lot more people would be vegan. But a person of any dietary disposition will likely be delighted by the gastronomic miracles served up at Caravan of Dreams. The live music and organic sangria add further charm to the friendly atmosphere. Fabulous! =)
