Where to Eat Vegan on Staten Island Right Now

Staten Island’s plant-based food scene is boomin’! Over the past year, two exclusively plant-based restaurants have opened, with many others adding vegan options to their menus. Whether you’re looking for pizza, burgers, mac ‘n’ cheese or Indian curry, you can find it in this NYC borough.

In recent weeks, all NYC restaurants have had to switch to pickup or delivery only due to COVID-19. We’ve compiled a list of veg-friendly eateries on Staten Island that are bringing the plant-based eats straight to your door!

Love Earth Cafe

Richmond Valley

Love Earth Cafe is a 100% plant-based restaurant that opened its doors in September 2019. The appetizer menu includes a Mojito Bean & Plantain Salsa (their signature appetizer), Buffalo Cauliflower with ranch dressing, Stuffed Mushrooms and Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts to name a few.

The company also offers fresh-pressed juices known as their Healing Nectars. Our favorite is the Natural Pain Killer made with pineapple, celery, ginger, and oranges.

The Artichoke and Spinach Burger—Love Earth’s signature burger—is made in house using gluten-free flour. It pairs great with vegan mozzarella.

In the mood for a sweet treat? Indulge in Love Earth’s allergen-friendly bakery, which is always gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and dairy- and egg-free. Bakery items include cookies, cupcakes, whoopie pies, and a brownie-chocolate chip cookie combo called a “Brookie.”

You can order for pickup, curbside pickup, or delivery by calling Love Earth cafe directly, or order online at loveearthcafebakery.com

Keep eating well and let Love Earth do the cooking!

TRI Lounge & Cafe

Concord 

TRI Lounge has been serving up exclusively vegan eats since November 2019. The cafe presents a twist to the usual vegan eatery, as they not only serve tasty plant-based food but also offer performance opportunities for local talents as well as community gatherings such as adult game night.

TRI Lounge's menu features everything from Pizza Burgers to Chili Mac ‘N’ Cheese. On weekdays you can choose from one of their midday specials, including Quinoa Chili w/ Cornbread, Buffalo Cauliflower Wings w/ Mac ‘N’ Cheese, a Classic Cheeseburger, and the TRI Veggie Bowl.

Some of our favorites are the Chili Cheese Fries and the Mac ‘N’ Cheese Burger (made with a Beyond Meat patty).

While the dine-in option is currently unavailable and events at Tri Lounge are postponed, you CAN still order tasty bites for pickup or delivery via Uber Eats, Grubhub, or DoorDash.

If it's vegan comfort food you’re craving, Tri Lounge has your back.

Bario’s

New Springville

Bario’s Restaurant & Catering is a staple on Staten Island, serving pizzas and other Italian fare since 1989. While not entirely plant-based, Bario’s has a seperate vegan menu with an array of plant-based options.

Choose from vegan pizzas, wraps, pasta, entrees, and rice bowls. Bario’s uses Violife cheese and Beyond Meat for items calling for meat and dairy substitutes.

The appetizer menu includes monster-sized Mozzarella Sticks, Buffalo Cauliflower, and Sautéed Veggies. A fan favorite on the pasta menu is the Pasta w/ Cashew Cream Vodka Sauce.

Staten Island is known for having delicious pizza, and Bario’s is no exception. Try the Beyond Chop Meat Pizza with caramelized onions, marinara sauce, and Violife mozzarella.

Bario’s pizzeria also hosts a monthly Staten Island Vegan & Vegetarian Meet-Up, where for $20 you can feast on an all-you-can-eat vegan buffet prepared by the owner Mario and his team. Bario’s donates half of the proceeds from the meet-up to Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue. The next event is TBD.

You can place orders for pickup or delivery via Slicelife.com, the Slice mobile app, or by calling Bario’s directly. If you do order online or through the mobile app, you’ll receive 5% off your order.

Dosa Garden

Tompkinsville 

Located a few blocks away from the neighborhood where Staten Island’s very own Wu-Tang Clan was formed, Dosa Garden serves South Indian eats to locals and tourists alike. This vegan-friendly spot stocks a variety of plant-based options. Start your meal with Rasam, Drumstick (no meat here, a “Drumstick” is a long thin Indian fruit shaped like a drumstick!), or Tomato soups. When ordering the Drumstick and Tomato soups, request to have them made with coconut milk instead of dairy-based cream.

Veggie Samosas are also a popular vegan appetizer. Be sure to request extra tamarind dipping sauce as the mint dipping sauce contains dairy.

For your entrée, request that the Vegetarian Curries be made with coconut milk instead of dairy cream. The Roti Bread pairs excellently with any of the veg-friendly curries and is vegan when ordered without butter.

Go for the Veggie Samosas with tamarind dipping sauce, Channa Masala (chickpea curry) made with coconut milk, and a side of Roti Bread.

Dosa Garden is open for carry-out or delivery. You can order by calling the restaurant directly or through Grubhub or Seamless.

Dosa Garden is closed on Mondays.

In Fine Fettle

Meiers Corners

Looking for healthy options on the go? Look no further, because In Fine Fettle has you covered. Their menu includes a full salad bar, juices, smoothies, acai bowls, rice bowls, and more. The restaurant offers a unique and healthy twist to your average burrito through an item they call a “Salarito,” a salad wrapped in a burrito. Create a vegan Salarito by ordering it with an Impossible burger patty, or tofu, and any of the vegan salad bar toppings.

Craving pizza? In Fine Fettle offers a few different plant-based pie options. When ordering the pizza, specify that you want it made on the vegan cauliflower crust. Options include the Vegan Plain (tomato sauce, vegan mozzarella) and the Impossible (romaine lettuce, pickles, onions, tomatoes, Impossible burger patty, and avocado). When ordering the Impossible Pizza, request vegan mozzarella and forego the Russian dressing.

In order to service their customers in the best way possible during this time, In Fine Fettle is now open 24/7 for pickup, curbside pickup, and delivery. They are also waiving the delivery fee. You can order for pickup or delivery by calling the restaurant directly or by visiting InFineFettle.com. You’ll automatically receive 10% off your first order.

The restaurant would also like to say thank you to our brave health care workers by offering 15% off of all hospital and medical facility deliveries across Staten Island.
