One of the reasons you move to a city like New York is to be surrounded by the best of the best. The people are interesting, the art is exciting, and the food? We could talk about the food for hours. We’re lucky to live in a city with innumerable excellent vegan options; these days, it’s so much more than just a side salad or an order of fries.
Even so, to take the most advantage of the best spots, you sometimes want a restaurant that falls outside the “wholly vegan” purview. When you’ve got one vegan friend (or you’re the vegan friend), you need a spot that can satisfy everyone.
So, just for you, we’ve rounded up our favorite spots in the city that aren’t totally vegan but have some damn good vegan plates. Of course, we won’t tell if you still order just fries.
