5 Vegan Kosher Spots in NYC

New York City is home to a large Jewish community, so it’s a great place to find tons of kosher eateries. Dining vegan at a kosher spot, whether vegan-centric or not, is easy because meat and dairy are not allowed in the same kosher restaurant. They’re either all-meat or all-dairy (or, like our list, all vegetarian/vegan!). So, if you’re enjoying a meatball at a dairy restaurant, it’s definitely vegetarian (labeled “pareve”). To check if it’s vegan, ask if it contains egg or honey.
