With its ultra-timely mission around opportunities for women, Minnesota’s City Girl Coffee might seem like it sprung up as a caffeinated version of #TimesUp. But founder Alyza Bohbot had been thinking about gender disparity long before the current reckoning and last week’s Golden Globes. In fact, the seeds of her game-changing brand got planted nearly five years ago, when Bohbot came home from Boston to join her parents’ hugely successful coffee-roasting company, Alakef.
Just when we thought 2017 had slunk off for good — let’s face it, the year stunk in myriad ways — word arrived about the closing of Caplansky’s, a nouveau-deli pioneer and beloved Toronto hangout. In a Facebook post, owner Zane Caplansky said that the eatery never recovered from a 2016 landlord-tenant spat that temporarily shuttered the restaurant. Two satellite locations remain open. “Moving forward, I hope to grow the franchises and wholesale aspects of the business,” Caplansky told the Forward.
For vegans, is this a golden age of dining? Judging from these 10 fabulous plates, which make magic minus the meat, the answer is “absolutely.” Some of the eateries on our list are kosher; some are modern Israeli, or Israeli-inspired. A couple of them have Jewish chefs. Whatever their orientation, they might coerce even committed carnivores to go green — especially now that we’re trying to lighten things up post-holiday season. Here are our favorite vegan dishes on menus right now.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
