Best Vegan Food in NYC area (close to Port Authority and Penn Station!)

New York City is a food heaven for people with food restrictions. The waiters will never look at you funny if you request a meal to be done in a certain way, no matter how particular your food restriction or preference happens to be.

From my experience, New York is by far the most vegan-friendly place in the world. There’s always at least one option on the menu that is completely vegan, and several that are vegetarian.

If you’re searching for a good vegan meal look no further. Here’s my list of the best vegan restaurants I found around NYC area.

Harlem (North of Central Park)

South of Central Park (Columbus Circle)

1. Blossom Du Jour Express – 1000 8th Ave, New York, NY 10019

Blossom Du Jour Express is a perfect lunch takeout place. Get your meal and head to the park to have a picnic! Worth to mention that Blossom Du Jour has 4 locations in NYC – in addition to this express place, they also have a sit-down restaurant on Upper West Side – a perfect place for dinner.

2. Beyond Sushi – 62 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019

This is New Yorker’s favorite chain for vegan food. You’ve gotta try it out! Many other locations throughout the city but this is one I can vouch for.

Close to Port Authority and Penn Station

Blossom Du Jour’s 9th Avenue location is only a few blocks away from Port Authority Bus Station. A perfect stop before your trip.

The Cinnamon Snail is located right inside Penn Station – 2 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, NY 10121


Marty V’s Burgers – 134 E 27th St, New York, NY 10016

This is my favorite spot on the list! It’s yummy and cheap which is my favorite combination when it comes to food 😉

East Village

Dun Well Donuts – 102 St Marks Pl, New York, NY 10009
