We’re rounding up the top vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants participating in the event’s first ever spring season since its inception 13 years ago. The 14-day dining event will offer al fresco and takeout dining to foodies all over the city. Grubhub serves as the official delivery and takeout partner, though many restaurants are committed to offering a taste of the city through socially distanced dine-in meals as well.

Plant-based staple, Café Gratitude, will be participating in both lunch ($20) and dinner ($35) with options for dine-in, takeout, and delivery.

Lunch features a drink, appetizer, and entree, while dinner includes all of the above along with a dessert.
