Posted by on

We've just returned from an amazing week in NYC and a highlight of our trip was all the delicious vegetarian dinning we were able to squeeze in. We’re excited to share some of our top picks with you!


This plant-based restaurant, cafe and juice bar  is our favourite breakfast and brunch spot! Their menus are 100% vegetarian, and mostly vegan and gluten-free. They‘re committed to buying produce from local and organic farms and supporting their community’s sustainability. Their menus are designed to allow customers to “eat with the season.” 

Our Top Picks:

  • Brass Monkey Smoothie
  • Spicy Kale Ceasar Salad with Tempeh
  • Smashed Avocado Toast Benedict


Beyond Sushi is a pioneer in the plant-based sushi movement. It’s 100% vegan eatery that celebrates the flavors of locally-sourced, seasonal produce. Their mission is to promote a sustainable, all-natural, and compassionate menu.
Chef Guy and his culinary team fuse unconventional pairings of fruit and vegetables with whole grains to create wide-ranging vegan dishes with different offerings at their five outposts in Manhattan.

This award-winning, plant-based, fast-casual brand offers a vegan menu of comfort foods that features locally-sourced ingredients in their most natural form. Their goal is simple —to redefine what it means to eat well. They’re passionate about feeding their customers hearty meals made from whole ingredients.

Our Top Picks:

ABCV is Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s third and latest restaurant inside of the ABC Carpet & Home furniture store and it is INCREDIBLE. This vegetarian restaurant boosts an exciting menu which includes many vegan options. It's the sort of restaurant where the menu has a preface. ABCV, it explains, “is here to serve, inform and inspire a cultural shift towards plant-based intelligence.” The food is not simply vegetarian; it's “high vibration,” and has the goal of nurturing “our personal and planetary ecosystems.” And boy..do they ever succeed!!
