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.

A sushi date is always a great option, especially when it’s 100% plant-based!

6 Vegan-Friendly Ethiopian Restaurants in Los Angeles

If your parents ever told you to stop eating your food with your hands, Ethiopian food is for you! Injera (a spongy flatbread) comes with most dishes, and it’s absolutely encouraged and customary in Ethiopian dining to use it as a vehicle to scoop up each delicious and flavor-packed bite. Not only that, but nearly half the population of Ethiopia are Ethiopian Orthodox Christians who traditionally eat vegan on Wednesdays, Fridays, and other fasting days, totaling over 200+ days per year. We’re rounding up some of LA’s best spots to try this vegan-friendly cuisine below!
