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!

Love is in the air at this Brooklyn staple, which is known for its romantic ambience and beautifully plated vegan eats. While indoor dining is on pause, the restaurant is currently offering pickup and delivery (a small outdoor seating space with an overhead heater is available), and a Valentine’s Day menu that will satisfy you and your sweetie. 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.

Jajaja Plantas Mexicana

Multiple Locations

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! Beyond Sushi offers unique roll options such as Smoky Jack (black rice, pickled cabbage, mango, hickory smoked jackfruit, baby arugula, mint, and tomato guajillo sauce) and Sunny Side (black rice, fennel, sun-dried tomato, avocado, butternut squash, and pumpkin seed pesto sauce).

If your love language is a big bowl of pasta and a bottle of vegan-friendly wine, John’s of 12th Street has you covered! While the restaurant is not fully vegan, they offer an extensive plant-based menu with dishes like stuffed mushrooms, garlic bread, seitan parmigiana with vegan cheese, ravioli, pasta with alfredo sauce, and more. Add in a bottle of Cesari Pinot Noir, and vegan tiramisu for good measure.

Délice & Sarrasin

Impress your lover with a taste of France in the heart of the West Village at Délice & Sarrasin. The family-owned and operated restaurant specializes in authentic French cuisine, including crêpes and galettes. And the best part is, it’s all vegan! Start off with the Plateau De Fromage (vegan cheese plate that combines cashew-based artisan cultured cheeses, served with bread), followed by the Tournedos Rossini (Impossible Foods filet steak, cooked in Frontignant sauce atop a light butter crouton, topped with foie gras and fresh black truffle). Be sure to peek at the dessert menu, which offers lavender-infused rice pudding, sorbet, French macarons, and more.

Choose from starters such as buffalo arancini (risotto croquettes with bleu cheese) and jackfruit tacos (corn tortilla, guacamole, pickled onion, and tomatillo salsa). Mains include dishes like the port wine seitan (port wine reduction, white mushrooms, garlic mashed potatoes, tempura onion, and sautéed spinach) and lasagna (ground seitan and tofu, vegan mozzarella, sautéed broccoli rabe and eggplant, marinara).
