Where to Eat Vegan in New York City

New York is a city of choices. When it comes to choosing to eat vegan, the decision shouldn’t be intimidating.

Gone are the vegan cafes of the past, known for dusty planters and wilted salads. Here to stay is the excitement of cruelty-free dining, whether it be for a lunch or as a life choice. Think fresh Tinga Tostada, upscale Pappardelle, and vegan versions of classic comforts like Seitan Philly Cheese Steak. From Nolita to Williamsburg, the real choice you should be making is if you want an electric dance floor or an iconic, Instagram-able menu served alongside your vegan fare. The best part? Your skeptical, non-vegan friends will be too busy enjoying their food to roll their eyes at you.
