Fellow New Yorkers recommended their favorite restaurants to try for Pride Month and beyond.

In honor of Pride Month this June, we are showcasing some of our favorite LGBTQ-owned vegan-friendly businesses. From French croissants to Malaysian salads and apps, these NYC spots will not disappoint.

Seitan’s Helper

Whether you’re new to plant-based eating or just craving an epic sandwich, this Brooklyn deli has you covered. They offer housemade seitan tucked into a fluffy baguette with layers of grilled veggies and creamy sauces that will leave you speechless.

Rumor has it that Ursula’s vegan burrito is one of the best in the city! It’s packed with pinto beans, vegan queso, hashbrowns, and red chili. Try it for yourself at this New Mexican-inspired cafe and bakery located in Brooklyn.

This French bakery and cafe operates out of Bushwick. They offer indulgent vegan croissants and other baked goods like the vegan pistachio chocolate escargot and vegan buns. We recommend enjoying your pastry with an espresso and a good book.
