Where to Eat Vegan Valentine’s Day Dinner in Los Angeles

No matter if you’re looking for a romantic date spot, a singles getaway far from cupid’s arrow, or an excuse to eat sweets on a Thursday, we’ve got you covered. Here are your vegan Valentine’s Day dinner destinations!

Pura Vita

West Hollywood

If there’s something more romantic than pasta, we don’t know what it is. On Valentine’s Day, Pura Vita is applying their plant-based Italian cuisine to a special Valentine’s tasting menu, which includes mushroom scallops, truffle potato soup, black garlic fettuccine, and citrus olive oil cake to name a few. The spread costs $75 per person, along with a $50 wine pairing, if you’re feeling boozy.

Gracias Madre

West Hollywood

We get it—fancy tasting menus aren’t for everyone. If you just want to keep it low key, grab a one-of-a-kind drink and dig into a special sweet on the 14th, Gracias Madre is your spot. Act fast, because their Strawberry Trifle with lemon curds and whipped cream and Two of Hearts cocktail (strawberry, orgeat, cacao nib-infused aperol, lemon, tequila, and aquafaba) are only available for one day!

Krimsey’s Cajun Vegan Kitchen

North Hollywood

Did you know that there’s an entirely vegan Cajun restaurant in North Hollywood? Yes, that’s Krimsey’s and for Valentine’s Day, along with their regular menu (which features everything from beignets to jambalaya, to gumbo to poboys, and more), they will be serving a special Strawberry Voodoo Brownie Beignet, which is topped with homemade fair-trade and organic dark chocolate sauce. Time to take a flavor trip down to New Orleans!

Seabirds Kitchen

Costa Mesa & Long Beach

On cupid’s favorite holiday, Seabirds will be serving a four-course meal inspired by Lunar New Year. While the full menu is yet to be released, we know that it’s bound to be impressive—plus, it comes with a themed cocktail! Reserve you and your cutie’s spot for $75/person!

Modern Times DTLA Dankness Dojo

Downtown

For those of you who think costumes are never a bad idea, that Halloween should be a year-round affair, and that Valentine’s Day is capitalist marketing at its finest, Modern Times is offering the perfect escape. From 5-9pm on Thursday, the Dankness Dojo in DTLA will be hosting Second Halloween, with free entrance, themed beers, and a costume contest. Three cheers for Halloween spirit, eight months early!

Sage Vegan Bistro

Culver City, Pasadena, & Echo Park

Each Sage location will be dishing up a four-course meal for you and your special someone, which includes your choice of cocktail and dessert. Reserve a spot to enjoy your friendly, neighborhood plant-based bistro on this romantic holiday.

Real Food Daily

West Hollywood & Pasadena

Reserve a spot at your nearest Real Food Daily to experience their Valentine’s Day Special Menu, which starts off with an amuse bouche, and is followed by your choices of appetizer, choice of soup or salad, choice entree—one option is their special vegan beet risotto, and choice dessert!

Sun Cafe

Studio City

Enjoy an elegant, seven-course plant-based Valentine’s dinner with your loved one, mom, or your ride-or-die for $200 per couple. You’ll get to enjoy an amuse bouche, beet tartare & sea cakes, roasted cauliflower soup, raspberry chard salad, an intermezzo cocktail, and a choice of entree (jackfruit ravioli or earth polenta), plus a raspberry & chocolate lava cake for dessert.

Elf Cafe

Echo Park

Join vegetarian restaurant Elf for a five course menu, consisting of Persian-inspired dishes (most of which are or can be made vegan) and delectable drinks. Email elfcafe@gmail.com to reserve your table and find out all the details!

Crossroads Kitchen

Melrose

Sit down to five courses of hand-crafted vegan Mediterranean food, including items like celery root soup, baby beet salad, parmesan cauliflower, risotto, blood orange cheesecake, and a glass of champagne for $75 at this famous eatery.

The Grain Cafe

Mid City & Long Beach

Casual couples, this one’s for you. On February 14th, each of The Grain Cafe’s locations will be serving a soup or salad, choice of two entrees, and flan or cherry cake for only $35! It’s maximum flavor for minimum expense.

Plant Food + Wine

Venice

Show off your baller status on Plant Food + Wine’s exclusive tasting menu, complete with every upscale perk your heart could crave, as it includes shaved truffles, cheese plates, wine pairings, and champagne.

Shojin

Little Tokyo & Culver City

Stereotypical Valentine’s dinner options like champagne and pasta may be undeniably romantic, but there’s another heart-warming, palate-pleasing, thoughtfully crafted food we’ve yet to mention: sushi. That’s why Shojin is a key player on this list—their Valentine’s Day menu will feature a plate of their hand-crafted sushi, along with other Asian-infused dishes like tamari wine meatloaf, green tea cake, and more.

 

From poshe evenings on Melrose to Halloween-themed parties in Downtown, there’s no shortage of extravagant ways to celebrate this Thursday night. Also, we’d like to share a big thank you with The Veganista Foodie for compiling a comprehensive list of the city’s best vegan-friendly events, making our search for Valentine’s dinners a breeze. Let us know what event you’re most excited for below in the comments!
