Where to Eat Vegan Valentine's Day Dinner in Los Angeles

Feb 8, 2020 BY: Allie Mitchell

Love is in the air––and on the tables of these LA vegan restaurants this Valentine’s Day! Roses are red, violets are blue, all we can think about is eating good food. If you’re anything like us, the only reason you fall victim to this cliche holiday is because of the grub! Once you’ve ordered your boxes of vegan chocolates, check off the next task on your to-do list––making dinner reservations! Whether you’re solo or with your beau, here’s a list of where to snag a dinner table this V-Day!

Nic’s On Beverly

West Hollywood

Let’s kick things off with Nic’s On Beverly, the winner of the Best New Restaurant category in the 2019 VegOut Awards! This grandiose vegan eatery is pulling out all the stops for Valentine’s Day with a special dinner menu. For just $55, Nic’s will present each guest with a priceless experience of good eats and good vibes all around! Launch into your evening with an amuse-bouche (a.k.a. “fancy complimentary appetizer”) of Saffron and English Pea Arancini with serrano aioli. From there, you’ll get to choose-your-own adventure––vegan dinner-style! By that we mean you are granted the freedom to select from a few options for each course: appetizer, entrée, and dessert. One of the dessert options is a Dark Chocolate Lava Cake with vanilla ice cream and cherries … just saying!

Pura Vita

West Hollywood

Elevate your dinner plans this Valentine’s Day with a reservation at the oh-so-fancy Pura Vita! They are serving up a special four-course set menu with an amuse-bouche and optional wine pairing to add-on. Break your afternoon fast with their House-made Cranberry Herb Cheese appetizer and a plate of Beet Carpaccio or Arancino! After that, pick Mafaldine or Risotto as your entrée, and a Salted Caramel Tart or Chocolate Peanut Butter Terrine. If you don’t speak a lick of Italian, this is a shorthand version of what to expect: cheese, beets or fried rice balls, salad or a creamy rice dish, and fancy sugary confections! Reservations required, this menu is available 5-11pm.

Pura Vita

SunCafe

Studio City

Sashay your way to SunCafe this Valentine’s Day for a special six-course prix fixe dinner! Begin your evening with an amuse-bouche of crostini with feta alongside Brussels sprouts and Granny Smith apples. Then move onto a bowl of Tomato Bisque Soup with croutons with a Bubble Love Cocktail to wash it all down! For your saga of entreés, greet your stomach with a gluten-free Cabbage Steak with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and a Kale and Mushroom Wellington in a buttery, flaky puff pastry! Strawberry Salad and King Oyster Scallops will also make a star appearance on your V-day table. And now, the moment you have all been waiting for … dessert! Dive your fork into SunCafe’s Strawberry Cake with aquafaba whipped cream, strawberry compote, and a few chocolate-covered strawberries on the side!

SunCafe

Shojin

DTLA and Culver City

This year, Shojin hosts two different Japanese Valentine’s Day feasts created by Chef Jun Matoshiro. Pay a visit to the Culver City location for a five-course authentic Japanese dinner of Sakura Hot Sake, Vegetable Sashimi, a Nigiri Sushi Plate, and more! To savor a more modern four-course menu of Deviled “Egg” with “Ikura,” Shojin Style Onion Soup, a Signature Sushi Plate, and Meatloaf Wellington, head to their spot downtown. Reservations can be made online.

Enjoy cheese fondue with fresh fruit and bread, a Sushi Sampler Platter from Jades Vegan Sushi, Chik’n Fettuccini Alfredo from Wicked Garden Cafe, and a fresh Cheesecake with toppings of your choice from Baked Vegan Vixen.

Sage Vegan Bistro

Echo Park, Pasadena, and Culver City

Mexican or Italian food? Why not both! Sage helps settle this age-old dilemma with their prix fixe Valentine’s Day menu, “Mexico Meets Italy.” This diverse menu celebrates husband and wife owners, Chef Mollie and Chef Elias––if that’s not #couplegoals, we don’t know what is! Can’t make it in on Friday? They’re extending the menu until Saturday evening, so you’ve got no excuse to not stop by!

Gracias Madre

West Hollywood

Gracias Madre keeps up their trend of creative eats and drinks this heart-filled holiday season! The So Fresa For 2 is a shareable soda shop-style cocktail made with strawberry, rosewater, lemon, tequila blanco, and aquafaba. For the grub, nosh on their Smoked Bok Choy Salad, Taquero Mucho Tacos, and Chocolate Pound Cake! The tacos are made with chicken-fried mushrooms, avocado ash aioli, chili, sprouts, and lemon. Delicioso!

Follow Your Heart Market & Cafe

Canoga Park

Valentine’s Day Dinner is fun and all, but sometimes it can be quite the bank breaker. Save your wallet from complete emptiness and dine at this all-vegan spot for just $24.95 a person! But don’t let that great price deceive you, you get a lot of bang for your buck––Cauliflower Parsnip Bisque, Winter Citrus Salad, Zucchini Ravioli, and Lemon Pistachio Cake. Who said vegan food can’t be cheap?

Real Food Daily

West Hollywood and Pasadena

We’ve got nothing but heart-eyed emojis for this multi-course prix fixe menu from Real Food Daily! Kick things off with a Smoked Cashew Cheese-Stuffed Date with mushroom bacon as the amuse-bouche––this will be your new favorite word after reading this article! Pick between two radical and romantic options for each course after that. Chimichurri Grilled Seitan, Red Beet Risotto, Celery Root Potato Soup, and a Chocolate Coconut Cream Tart are just a few highlights on their menu. Stay and sip on a Blood Orange Bellini, Lavender Prosecco, Pomegranate and Thyme Fizz Cocktail, or Red Mule!

Crossroads Kitchen

Melrose

Feeling hungry? Reserve a table at Crossroads for a romantic five-course mix-n-match dinner! Each course has two or three options to choose from, so we’d recommend for you and your lover to order different items for each course to try even more––that is, if you are willing to share! Almond Milk Burrata, Italian Wedding Soup, Romaine Caesar Salad, Black Risotto, and Passion Fruit Crème Brûlée is just one of the many course combinations you can order!

Strand Brewing Co.

Brandon’s on La Brea

La Brea

Are you not a fan of this lovey-dovey holiday? Does the color pink make you cringe? If you answered “yes” to either or both of those questions, you might want to look into this anti-Valentine’s day party at Brandon’s! This cocktail party titled “Love Will Tear Us Apart” embraces all-things black by serving black alcoholic beverages that can be made vegan and encouraging all guests to dress to match the dark color of their souls.
