The Granola Bar of Rye

96 Purchase St, Rye; 914.709.4229

This spot may specialize in granola, but there are plenty of savory options to go around. The Power Bowl consists of warm quinoa, sautéed spinach, avocado, portobello mushrooms, tomato, and a soft egg with choice of dressing. For a twist, try ingredients over a bed of roasted cauliflower or sautéed kale. Or if you want a creative take on a classic, try the Bar Caesar, which comes with shaved Brussels and cauliflower with a lemon-anchovy dressing and topped with a parmesan-rosemary granola.

Grass Roots Kitchen

124 Wildey St, Tarrytown; 914.909.5588

This popular spot, just a quick walk from the Tarrytown train station, cooks up bowls for every time of day. All the entrée bowls are served with roasted broccoli, avocado, chickpea salad, pickled onion, your choice of a base which includes grains or cauliflower and wild rice, and choice of two sauces (basil aioli or buffalo hot sauce). The eatery offers a barbecue vegan “chicken” bowl, crispy Buffalo cauliflower bowl, marinated chicken bowl, and cilantro-lime seared salmon filet bowl.

Mason Sandwich Co.

33 Mill Rd, Eastchester; 914.776.2766

Don’t let the name fool you — this joint has more to offer than heroes and hoagies. Chow down on one of the four bowls offered here. The flank steak bowl is packed with sweet soy-marinated steak, roasted broccoli, pickled carrots, spicy mayo, sesame, and quinoa (which can be traded out for brown rice), while the ancient grain bowl is loaded with both quinoa and freekeh, plus roasted cauliflower, baby spinach, chickpeas, pomegranate, and a delectable curry vinaigrette. The brown rice bowl features fire-roasted corn salsa, black beans, avocado, aji verde, and radish sprouts. Last, but definitely not least, is the chipotle chicken bowl with a bed of rice and beans topped with lettuce, avocado, crispy tortilla, Oaxaca cheese, sour cream, and, the star of the show, chipotle pulled chicken.
