Perelandra may see a lot of me soon, depending how this jury duty thing pans out.
It’s been a while since the last big update to our NYC Vegan Restaurant Guide. Remember: if you’ve been a customer at any of these places, help out your fellow vegans by leaving a review!
Park Slope gets a few veg-friendly omni places: Bogota Latin Bistro, Flatbush Farm, and Hunan Delight (your go-to place for fake meat when you’re sick of Vegetarian Palate, especially now that Red Hot has closed).
Elsewhere in Brooklyn, Frank White brings great coffee, vegan sandwiches and baked good, and more than a little style to the no-man’s-land between Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights. Urban Spring brings pricey fancy organicness to Fort Greene. Brooklyn Label brings vegan-friendly brunch to Greenpoint. Downtown Brooklyn’s Perelandra is a grocery store, but they also have a lot of great prepared food (including a vegan McMuffin!).
In Mahnattan, Bluestockings is great a bookstore and event space, but don’t forget they also have coffee and vegan baked goods, as does Hopscotch Cafe on Tompkins Square. Moving further uptown, the Sri Lankan Nirvana Cafe in Gramercy is recommended by multiple SuperVegan readers. We were excited about Zen Burger, but it’s kind of unbelievably un-vegan for a vegetarian burger joint.
What about Queens? Internationalist Mundo Cafe & Restaurant is somehow the first place we’ve ever listed in Astoria.
Huge thanks to readers Tiffany, Isa, Allison, Brooklyn Vegan, Janet, DaSleaza, and Mikaila for alerting us to some of these places. We’ve got at least a dozen more restaurants that we’re working on adding, so expect another update like this soon. As always, if you know of a place that should be in the guide, let us know!
Don’t forget that you can browse our listings by neighborhood and by cuisine.
