Where to Get Vegan Valentine’s Day Dinner in NYC

Enjoy an intimate evening in NYC filled with romance, love, and delicious vegan eats!

Whether your date is obsessed with sushi or can’t get enough of plant-based pizza, you’re sure to find the perfect spot for Valentine’s Day dinner at one of these vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants. Dine on an outdoor heated patio (just call ahead to see if outdoor seating is available), or use the pickup or delivery service to enjoy a delicious meal at home with your loved one. Read on to find out where you can get vegan Valentine’s Day dinner in NYC!

Double Zero

Manhattan

Enjoy a pleasant conversation with your boo over a cheesy vegan pie from Double Zero, a plant-based pizza restaurant brought to you by esteemed chef Matthew Kenney. The eatery offers classics such as the margherita (cashew mozzarella, tomato, and basil) and the artichoke (cashew cream, diced tomatoes, spinach, and caramelized onion), as well as unique pizza creations like the squash blossom (rice mozzarella, blistered cherry tomatoes, and aged balsamic). End your Valentine’s Day meal with a slice of creamy vegan cheesecake or rich chocolate cake—swoon!

The Valentine’s offerings include seitan Francaise with mashed potatoes, mustard greens, and grilled lemon, oyster mushroom calamari with spicy mayo, Old Bay, hot sauce, and lemon, cream of wild mushroom soup with truffled arugula, and a berry and mascarpone Mason jar with graham crumbles for dessert.

Make your sweetheart feel like they’re vacationing in Cabo at Jajaja’s Plantas Mexicana. The all-vegan eatery offers heated outdoor seating, colorful vegan dishes, and creative cocktails. Share a plate of beet and pumpkin empanadas while you sip apple chai hot toddies, or feast on enchiladas mole (shredded palm carnitas, coconut queso, guajillo, and sour cream served with Spanish rice) while you toast with a glass of coquito (spiced rum, coconut cream, and cinnamon). Finish your Valentine’s Day dinner with a slice of raspberry cheesecake, or go for the seasonal flan topped with cocoa nibs and coco whipped cream.

Canada’s All-Vegan Grocery Store, PlantX, Is Coming to San Diego

PlantX is a one-stop vegan retailer that sells everything from oat milks and canned goods to all-natural soaps and air-purifying indoor plants. They carry thousands of products across 350+ brands—meaning if it's vegan, it can most likely be found in one of their stores. If not, then it’s probably being loaded on a delivery truck to be stocked on shelves later in the week. Leading up to 2021, this West Vancouver-based business was only located throughout Canada, but it will soon make its United States debut in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego.

The Best Vegan Dal Ever

This is my go-to dal. It’s creamy from the coconut milk, tangy from the lemon. It pulls sweetness from the tomatoes and sneaks in some surprise spinach (mostly because I wanted to add some greenery). It’s energizing and light, while remaining both grounding and comforting.
