Dine in at any of the restaurants for a romantic candlelit experience, or take your Valentine’s Day dinner to go and 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 valentine 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!

Ladybird

Manhattan

This East Village tapas and wine bar offers a variety of vegan small plates served in a cheerful atmosphere ideal for Valentine’s Day date night. Enjoy dishes such as Buffalo maitake buns, truffle mac ‘n’ cheese, chardonnay & artichoke fondue, and more. Speaking of fondue, the chocolate fondue is an excellent choice for dessert and comes with an assortment of fruit, graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate for dipping purposes. We also recommend trying the pink sangria, which combines rosé wine, Cocchi Rosa Americana (aperitif), lychee, raspberry, and rosewater.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
