Dairy-forward places (i.e., 10 million pizzerias) continue to proliferate in the East Village, while the historically crunchy hood loses more and more of its longtime veggie eateries (RIP Curly’s Vegetarian Lunch and Quantum Leap). The latest endangered meat-free spot is Kate’s Joint, which is at risk of eviction in April, as EV Grieve reports. But the tofu-scramble specialist is not rolling over: A campaign is afoot to drum up enough dough to save the place. Perhaps they could start a Kickstarter, like everybody else these days? [EV Grieve]
