Valentine’s Day is not quite the extravaganza of gluttony that is Thanksgiving, but if you’re one of the lucky few who can afford to pump some cash into the NYC vegan restaurant economy right now, you’ve got plenty of choices. Whether you’re going all out with the romance or just enjoying International Quirkyalone Day, you can choose from:
The Global Giving Circle is holding a Valentine’s Day Chocolate Tasting Extravaganza, a fundraiser to benefit Project Hope & Fairness, which supports African cocoa farmers and their families. Tickets start at $25 per person; I’m not sure how vegan it’ll be.
Luxee wants vegans to know that their $14 “Cirque de Pomme” (layers of tofu apple mousse, spiced apple puree, red wine gelee, miniature almond strudel, topped with red wine sorbet) would make a perfect after-dinner dessert. They also sell vegan sorbets and mini-desserts.
Pure Food and Wine is going all out with a special Valentine’s week menu. The five course meal (excluding drinks) will cost $72 and will be available from February 11-18.
