NYC Vegan Valentine’s Day Specials, 2010 Edition


To-die-for chocolate tahini truffles from Sweet Compassion. Check out their website for more flavors and ordering info.

Have you made reservations for Valentine’s Day dinner? New York may be the best city in the world to be a vegan on the most romantic day of the year. Check out our fantastic options:

Blossom has a four-course prix fixe menu for $72. Highlight: a dessert called “Coffee and Donuts.” (Just say the word “donut” in front of a vegan and watch her eyes light up–though, actually, these are beignets.)

Cafe Blossom and Cafe Blossom East are offering four courses for $55. Highlight: it’s either a typo or culinary experimentation gone wild, but my curiosity wouldn’t allow me to resist the Strawberry Spinach Risotto entree.

Candle 79‘s four-course prix fixe is $75. Highlight: can you think of a better Valentine’s Day dessert than Chocolate Fondue for Two?

Candle Cafe gives you four courses for $52, plus a la carte options. Highlight: an entree of Ancho-Chocolate Seitan Tamales.

Cocoa V offers three courses for $47. Highlight: the Cheese Plate, featuring Dr. Cow’s nut-based cheeses. And they also have a version of Chocolate Fondue for Two.

Counter‘s got a $65 four-course prix fixe, plus an optional $30 wine pairing or a cocktail and truffles for $25. Watch out, though; the cocktail contains honey, and Counter isn’t all vegan, so be careful what you order. Highlight: definitely the wine pairings, which are a mix of sustainable, biodynamic, and organic (and usually a lot better than the food).

Gobo (Downtown and Uptown) has the most affordable choice: three courses and a drink for $35. Alas, watch out for the honey in the dessert. (Haven’t these people ever heard of agave?) Highlight: the Shitake Caps are a classic.

Pure Food and Wine hasn’t posted their menu, but they’ve got a four-course prix fixe set for $72. If you want raw food, this is the place to go.

If you haven’t made a reservation by now, you’re probably screwed, but it never hurts to call and beg. Or just cook at home (might I recommend the simple and delicious Spinach Linguine With Basil-Cilantro Pesto and Artichokes from Veganomicon?), then head to Lula’s for the best vegan dessert in the city.

Please let us know in the comments what we’re missing.

    There’s a new vegan chocolate/dessert place called Cocoa V that’s basically across the street from Blossom. They are offering a three course (I think?) pre-fixe, and if I remember correctly the cost is $47.
