New York City is a paradise for vegans on Thanksgiving. Choose from the options below, and do make your reservations soon–these places fill up fast!
Angelica Kitchen is offering a $50 five course prix fixe menu.
Caravan of Dreams will serve a three course dinner for $22.
Curly’s will be serving a $24.95 prix fixe menu. You can choose between soy turkey or maple-baked ham for your entree, plus a variety of sides.

Chef Ouiya has both prix fixe and a la carte options for delivery or pick up. Check out the menu here and make sure to get your order in by midnight Sunday Update: Wednesday at 10pm for Thursday delivery(!) or pickup (according to yolisekhmet in the comments).
Pure Food and Wine will be serving a fancy schmancy four course prix fixe for $72. I almost want to go here just to see how they justify offering the most expensive vegan Thanksgiving meal in NYC.
Red Bamboo will be serving their regular menu and a $20 Thanksgiving prix fixe menu. If you’re going out of town on the day itself, Red Bamboo Brooklyn will offer their $19.95 three course prix fixe after 4pm on Thanksgiving Day as well as on the Tuesday and Wednesday before.
Next to its “normal” Thanksgiving dinners for eight or twelve, WholeFoods offers that same old Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner for one. For $19.99, you get curried apple pumpkin soup, a holiday roast stuffed with wild rice and dried cranberries, green beans with almonds, a mini pecan tart, and a firm reminder that the world considers you an isolated freak.
Also, if you’re stuck attending a non-vegan Thanksgiving, you may want to pass along these tips if you’re lucky enough to have a host who wants to accommodate you. Good luck!
UPDATE 11/24/08: It’s Vegan Thanksgiving Week at Perelandra. Fresh seitan and gravy, stuffing, garlic roasted smashed potatoes, pumpkin tofu cheesecake and other holiday-ish foods every day this week. (Probably not in quantity enough to cater your banquet, but perfect if you’re dropping by for lunch.)
