For those of you who'll be in town this Thanksgiving weekend and are avoiding the blood pressue spike caused by stressful dinner prep, I'm reposting SuperVegan.com's annual list of vegan Thanksgiving specials around New York City. Save the turkeys, stuff yourself!
Happy Thanksgiving to all you awesome veggie readers! I'll be out of town for the next few days, but will be back on Monday with more vegetarian and vegan goodness to report on!
Angelica Kitchen is offering a five course prix fixe menu for $50; BYOB to save money. Thanksgiving is the only night Angelica takes reservations, so folks won't have to queue up in the cold like usual. The dinner will also be available for take out from the juice bar. Say hi to SuperVegan's own Olivia Lane, who will be hostessing in the afternoon.
Blossom and Blossom Uptown (the former Cafe Blossom) are offering the same three-course menu for $68, with reservations available between 3-9pm.
Candle 79's four course prix fixe is $70, while sister restaurant Candle Cafe gives you four courses for $52, plus a la carte options.
Caravan of Dreams will have Thanksgiving options in addition to their regular menu.
Counter's got seatings from 12pm-9pm for their $50 four course prix fixe, plus an optional $25 wine pairing.
Curly's will be serving a four or five ("depending on how you count them") course prix fixe menu for $26.95.
Hang out with Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Peter Max, and Ally Sheedy at Farm Sanctuary's Celebration FOR the Turkeys this Sunday at Tavern on the Green. You can even get the latest word on author Jonathan Safran Foer's not-quite-veganism from the man himself. The event is currently sold out, but you can call to get on the waiting list.
NYC's all-vegetarian grocery store, Integral Yoga Natural Foods, has many prepared vegan Thanksgiving foods. It's currently offering a 10% discount on holiday desserts, pies, cakes and brownies (most are vegan; they've got a list with ingredients on their website).
Organic Grill will have a special Thanksgiving menu in addition to their regular menu.
Chef Ouiya has both prix fixe and a la carte options for delivery or pick up. Check out the menu here and make sure to get your order in by Saturday the 21st.
Perelandra Natural Food Center has a selection of prepared vegan Thanksgiving foods.
Pure Food and Wine will once again be serving the most expensive vegan Thanksgiving meal in NYC. Their four course prix fixe is $72; select items from their regular menu will also be available.
Red Bamboo will be serving their regular menu and a $21.95 Thanksgiving prix fixe menu. Red Bamboo Brooklyn will offer a three course prix fixe after 4pm at an as-yet-undecided price. (Jeez, people, Thanksgiving is less than a week away!)
'sNice and 'sNice Brooklyn are both closed Thanksgiving day, but we recommend you stop by in the days before or after to try their awesome Thanksgiving Leftovers sandwich.
WholeFoods has their same old Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner for one. At $19.99, it includes curried apple pumpkin soup, a stuffed holiday roast, green beans with almonds, and mushroom gravy. Dessert is now sold separately, packaged with bread.
You already missed the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary's 2009 Thanksliving, but you can sign up for their mailing list to make sure you don't miss out next year.
