Where to Eat Vegan for Thanksgiving 2010 in New York City

Kima the turkey

Look at that face. Vegans are weird for not wanting to kill her? Sponsor Kima or another turkey at Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey project.

New York is the best city in the world to be a vegan. Case in point: Thanksgiving. I dare any other city to match the number and variety of vegan options we have.

The dinner will also be available for take out from the juice bar if you’re not able to make a reservation.

    Laura, fantastic post! Thanks so much for sharing with all of us, you do such a great job!

    Kshamper-V-Note will be closed on actual Thanksgiving as will Blossom Du Jour (but you can stop by before or after for a slice of apple or pumpkin pie if you need dessert for 1).

    Carol and Bob- Are you members of If not join and you can host a Brooklyn Potluck through the group if you’re interested.

    Does anyone know if Angelica’s menu is going to be posted anywhere beforehand? Would be good for purposes of comparison-shopping.

    go to Angelica’s website and click on the daily specials menu, page 2 has the Thanksgiving menu. Peacefood Cafe also loaded their T day menu to their regular menu if you open it up from their website page 1.

    In case anyone is or family keeps Kosher-Blossom, Cafe Blossom, Sacred Chow, Peacefood Cafe, Organic Grill, Caravan of Dreams, Terri and the bakery at Lifethyme are kosher certified.

    FierceFemme-I’d suggest Josie’s West if they’re open

    fiercefemme – We took our meat-eating family to Spring Street Natural a couple years ago. Nice options all around.

    All of these options seem good but are severely overpriced! Vegetarian Paradise (located off the West 4th stop) has an excellent selection of noteworthy dishes including the Paradise Turkey dinner for less than $20! They will also be serving their entire regular menu and are also BYOB!!! I recommend the coconut shrimp, the collard green spring rolls and the stuffed lotus leaf!
