Ruby’s has locations in both SoHo and Murray Hill and is open 7 days a week. This gem of a restaurant is full of Australian culinary influences. While the uptown locale is best for bigger groups, the downtown location is cash only so make sure to bring your wallet. Their avocado toast boasts radish and hemp seeds.
Bluestone Lane Cafe
Bluestone Lane is another Australian run business. With multiple locations across NYC and a new full service restaurant location opening this year, their avocado toast was ahead of the trend. Get one at any of their cafe locations.
Blank Slate Tea
Blank Slate is your spot for all things tea, all things pink and all things delish. Their avocado toast is a staple on their menu.
Cafe Gitane was ahead of the game and some claim that it is the original of the avocado toast havens in the city. Their specialty is a simple avo-mash a top a seven-grain toast, drizzled with EVOO, lemon juice, and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes.
While We Were Young
The aesthetic of While We Were Young is every aspiring Instagram influencer’s dream come true. Pale pink upholstery accompanied by their white marbled tables set the mood at this airy restaurant. They’re open seven days a week. Just take a look at this colorful toast!
For all you Brooklynites, Tekoá is the place to be. The avocado on their classic toast is curried and topped with an optional 4 minute egg.
Last but certainly not least on the list is Navy. Personally, the aesthetic of this restaurant just does it for me. It was designed with a “Maritime WWII aesthetic” in mind and it stays true to that. Navy focuses on seafood and vegetables so the avo-toast isn’t exactly what would traditionally bring someone in to the restaurant but it sure is worth trying! Open 7 days a week.
