Clean Eating Made Easy
Our Favorite City Spots for Vegetarian Grub
With the start of the new year, we’ve made it a goal to incorporate clean eating into our daily routine. Lucky for us, Manhattan has a whole host of offerings that make Meatless Mondays a delicious and effortless feat, and though you don’t have to completely cut out your favorite steak or cheesy comfort food, these restaurants prove there’s far more to vegetarian offerings than bland veggie burgers and tasteless tofu.
Amanda Cohen, a chef who has made a name for herself as a plant-focused pioneer, brings cutting-edge offerings with an inspired menu at Dirt Candy. Delicious enough to sway even the most carnivorous of eaters, this Lower East Side eatery welcomes guests with chic, modern design and brightly colored plates. Indulge in either of the restaurant’s tasting menus that feature a medley of the chef’s greatest hits, or opt for an a’la carte affair. We recommend the crave-worthy Spinach Mille Feuille, made of spinach puff pastry, super-concentrated spinach mousse, smoked pistachio butter, a lilac spinach, dehydrated grapefruit, and smoked pistachio salad.
86 Allen St, New York, NY 10002
A culinary legend, Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings his first meat-free venue to Manhattan with the highly-acclaimed ABCV. Here, the space and stylish crowd are as chic as the healthy offerings and delicious creations from the award-winning chef’s kitchen. Thoughtful touches, such as a chart detailing the health benefits of various vegetables on the menu, remind you that you’re dining in an ABC restaurant, while offerings like Fresh Spinach Spaghetti with broccoli, kale, preserved lemon, 18 garlic, parmigiano, and saffron crumbs are cooked up and served to “inform and inspire a cultural shift towards plant based intelligence, through creativity and deliciousness.”
Though we love the bounty of the sea, even we can get behind this casual, vegan-sushi spot. A Shark Tank alumni, this restaurant’s offerings are so addictive, they’ve expanded to six locations throughout the city. With a mission to eat clean and leave a lasting impact on our planet, the culinary team at Beyond Sushi serves up a fast-casual menu with high-end appeal and flavors. Fresh fruits, locally-sourced vegetables, and whole grains are meticulously prepared in the menu’s sushi offerings, house-made dumplings, noodle soups, and fresh salads. Stop in for a quick bite or visit their flagship, full-service restaurant for an unforgettable dinner.
