Being Vegan in New York City

New York City has hundreds of options when it comes to finding amazing vegan food. Between the cafes and restaurants that cater specifically to vegans and the wealth of ethnic food that is naturally vegan, you’ll never be at a loss for good eats.

 

And so much of it is so delicious, it attracts non-vegan foodies as well! And the cherry on top, is that vegan restaurants are usually very accessible for gluten-free and dairy-free patrons. Let’s see some of our favorite vegan options.
