4 vegetarian restaurants in New York City

I always say that New York is the city of diversity – including culinary! I always talk about the variety of restaurants in the city, which includes options for all budgets and tastes. Today, Paula Galvanini, Nutritionist and Natural Chef, shares her tips with us!

The vegetarian movement has been growing every day – vegetarian food is not only about vegetables and soybeans. The vegetarian cuisine has stood out and renowned chefs dedicate themselves to making the vegetables the stars of the dish. With surprising preparations, these restaurants are able to get attention even from those who love barbecue. I have selected five super cool New York restaurants that serve everything: from breakfast to the night drinks with appetizers. After all, vegetarians and supporters are also entitled to incredible experience in good restaurants.

Avant Garden – a super cozy vegan restaurant. The kitchen is open and separated only by a counter, where guests are also served. As the restaurant is quite small, they had to think of every detail to optimize the space. From the small menu to the wine glasses, which have been specially designed to serve both red and white wines. The menu has three toasts ($14), three cold dishes ($12 to $16), and six hot dishes ($16 to $22). Romanesco toast has incredible flavor and texture, and the salads also surprise with delicious sauces. Although it only opens for dinner, the restaurant does private events for lunch.

Address: 130 E 7th Street.

Double Zero – Chef Matthew Kenny, known for his talent in raw food, innovates at this vegan pizzas restaurant, which also features classics such as raw zucchini lasagna. The pizzas are made with vegan cheeses and the taste is amazing and they still offer gluten-free pasta options. My choice was the truffled pizza with mushrooms ($20) and the zucchini lasagna ($22). Both dishes were super tasty! It is worth checking.

Address: 65 2nd Ave.
