The Top 10 Vegetarian Restaurants in New York City


Congratulations to our #1 restaurant… for now.

What are the best vegetarian restaurants in New York City? Ah, the neverending discussion topic amongst NYC vegans… until now, because SuperVegan has found the truth! Or, well, we’ve added together the subjective ratings of our website visitors and come up with a list.

Check it out: The Top 10 Vegetarian Restaurants in New York City.

Rankings are based on the reviews you all have been posting on our site for the past year and a half. To be considered, a restaurant must be completely vegetarian and have at least three five reviews.

So what’s the best veggie restaurant in New York City? Well, today it’s the perfectly reviewed Hangawi. (Congratulations, Hangawi! SuperVegan readers love you.)

But here’s the fun: it can change. Leave a review and rate your favorite, and the rankings will update. So find a restaurant and tell us your thoughts.

    Way to blow your cover, vegansrock! And thanks :)

    C’mon people – leave lots of reviews and mess up those results a bit.

    Wow. That list does NOT reflect the truth. Zen Palate? C’mon…

    Yeah, I’m also thinking that Zen Palate is a questionable entry. I guess I’d better start reviewing more.

    Hey now, folks. Don’t shoot the messengers. Like politics, the SuperVegan Top 10 Vegetarian Restaurants list is not a spectator sport. We did not choose who is (or isn’t) included in the list. The results are based on what people who took the time to review the restaurants have to say and it can change any time depending on your and everyone else’s reviews. So, if you want to rave or rant about a restaurant, please make sure you file the review instead of just leaving them here. Thanks!!

    Thanks geminiimatt! I hope more people do the same. We made this site for all of you, not just to see our names in print.

    I also can never understand how people can say that Zen Palate is such a great restaurant. The food there is so disgusting! It’s greasy and tastes like it’s been sitting around for days. i always wonder if,the people who rate it so high,are people who are newly veg*n and still have their meat tastebuds. The place is always packed,which i also can not understand. I have eaten at both places (unless there’s more that I don’t know of),and they both taste dirty,flavorless and greasy.
    My personal favorite place in NYC is Caravan of Dreams. They have such a large variety-from hearty to raw.

    I love Blossom in Chelsea and now they opened a Vegan Chocolate store across the street….Cocoa V…amazing. Did you also read the new book, Meat is for Pussies by John Joseph. Go to for a copy.
