Where is the Best Vegan in New York, New York?

If you’re into raw food, you should try PFW at least once. It’s very expensive, and you need to make reservations (or better yet, check their website, you can reserve online), particularly on a nice day or weekends. The menu isn’t huge, but the dishes are quite exotic. It’s lacto-vegetarian and they use honey, but they have a few vegan dishes. When we went, they ran out of two of the main courses, unfortunately the two we wanted. The portions are small: think trendy California, model-thin servings. If you want food you can sink your teeth into, this probably isn’t the place for you. Perhaps it was just chance, but all but one of the dishes we ordered were very mushroom-heavy. We love mushrooms, so that wasn’t an issue, but it was a little strange that there were so few dishes with leaves and green produce; maybe it’s a seasonal thing. They used shaved truffles in one of this dishes, which was wonderful. The nut cheese appetizer is excellent as well. As we were leaving, t

We went at 6:30 on a Thursday evening. The place was dead and seemed dated. Perhaps if we went later in the evening when it was dark out and the restaurant was fuller the ambiance would have been better. There were plenty of waiters but it was never clear who was our waiter and who was our busboy because no one said much of anything to us. It was clear that we were new to Indian food but yet there was no attempt to help us with our order and again, not even clear who our waiter was. The condiments we received were wonderful and that is what prompts me to give the place a few stars. All three of them were fresh and had delicous complex flavors. Naan is always wonderful because it is so fresh baked and I am not going to say I was unhappy with it but the naan we ordered – an onion one and a potato one was not as good as other places I have had it. My dinner, chicken tikki was dry and lacking in flavor. Perhaps that is the nature of that particular dish but except for the condiments no

I’ve been wanting to try Angelica’s for quite some time and finally went this Saturday night. Although the food was pretty good (though nothing we couldn’t have cooked ourselves at home just as well), the service was atrocious. First, our waiter did not introduce himself and probably said a total of 5 words to us all night. He literally just stood at the table looking at us when it came time to order. Although we were all vegetarians, it would have been helpful for the waiter to ask if anyone had any questions about the menus since not everyone is familiar with typical vegetarian foods, like seitan, etc. Our appetizers came out incredibly quick, which was not necessarily a bad thing. However, before we had even gotten halfway through the appetizers our entrees were literally shoved onto the table and once again, the waiter said absolutely nothing to us. Also, they rushed to clear our table after we had finished our entrees, but for some unknown reason left a hummus appetizer pla

As others have mentioned, for upscale vegan/vegetarian places there aren’t many choices in NY, but this is a good one. Our food was quite good – even my skeptical carnivorous parents enjoyed their meals a good deal. However, one unfortunate factor almost tainted our dinner – the music was loud and terrible – completely out of sync with the ambiance of a fine restaurant. We made reservations and requested a quiet table (for my hard of hearing parents) . We were seated at a large table directly under a speaker which was blasting classic rock (Lynrd Skynrd, Boston, Thin Lizzy) so loud that even I couldn’t hear the person next to me or be heard without shouting. It was unbearable. So we politely asked the manager to turn down the music. He paused, then scoffed, then turned it down a smidge – barely perceptibly. He continued to ignore us when we tried to flag him down and ask him to turn it down a bit more. Fortunately, another table asked our waiter to turn it down and he did so very ob

This is really the best vegetarian food I’ve had in NY. Some entrees are better than others, but overall its still the best. The fine dining menu, served in the back room of the midtown location and upstairs of the Union Sq, is a little out of my everyday price range. I eat in the cheaper sections with the cheaper menu. And yes they are crowded and small. If you’re impressing someone sit in the pricey section, the Union Sq upstairs has a view of the park. If you dont care about that kind of thing, enjoy the other menu, either way the food is fabulous.Pros + FoodCons – some rooms crowded, lines on weekends
