Whatever you eat next Thursday, we suggest you Adopt a Turkey, such as the lovely Payton pictured here, at Farm Sanctuary! (N.B. Not to be confused with religious sect The Salvation Army’s horrid perversion of the concept!)
It’s that Thanksgiving time of year again, and like we’ve done for the past bunch of years, SuperVegan has compiled a comprehensive guide of where to eat out on Thanksging in New York City. This is everything we could find authorative info on. Surely some restaurants are doing Thanksgiving specials but haven’t promoted well enough for us to find out; leave comment or drop us a line if you know of anything we missed! We’ll update this post as we hear of new worthwhile options.
We’ve also listed caterers that are doing special Thanksgiving packages.
And if you’re cooking yourself, be sure to check out our round-up of nine (9!) packaged roastable turkey-substitutes on the market this year.
(This post was updated on November 16 to add V-Spot, BK Farmyards, and extended Monk’s Meat deadline.)

Serving special meals on Thanksgiving day
BK Farmyards is hosting a community-minded dinner at Cobble Hill pub 61 Local. Pay $20 for the vegan meal they’re preparing, or help out and eat for free! People can also bring a supplemental dish and eat at half price, but that supplemental dish need not be vegan. (Everything will be labeled with ingredients, though.)

Some Thanksgiving events happen before actual Thanksgiving day. Make it last all week!
Kick things off on Sunday afternoon with Our Farm: By the Animals of Farm Sanctuary by author Maya Gottfried, with dance-along led by the studio’s artistic director, Cynthia King. Adults and children should dress in clothing comfortable to dance in and be prepared to take off their shoes.”
US VegCorp is hosting a dinner at Blossom Carmine on Monday, November 19. $45 for complete dinner and donation to For the Animals Sanctuary. $75 for the above plus VIP tickets for the entire weekend of the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival.
Lucie Boshier is hosting a “sumptious” dinner with champagne on Wednesday the 21st, at a private location in Lower Manhattan overlooking the Hudson. It’s $75 ($10 of which will be donated to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary). She promises “fun, indulgence, and belly laughs” and “well-behaved animal companions are welcome”, which is awesome.
And if past years are any indication, ‘sNice’s three locations (West Village , Soho, and Park Slope) and Terri are all closed Thanksgiving day, but we recommend you stop by in the days before or after to try their awesome Thanksgiving Leftovers sandwiches and seasonal sides.
We wish you all happy eating and happy thanking!
