The event will focus on introducing new spots to vegans who dine out and showcase the diversity around the city.
New York city is Hosting its first- ever Vegan Dining Month in 2023 just in time for Veganuary.
The initiative was created by food and travel website Vegans, Baby. The aim is to encourage New Yorkers to go vegan in January and beyond.
More than twenty local restaurants will participate with new vegan dishes or prix fixe menus to promote plant-based cuisine.
Speaking to Forbes, Diana Edelman, Vegans, Baby’s founder said: “I am so excited to launch Vegan Dining Month in NYC after running it for six years in Las Vegas.
“The city has such a dynamic vegan dining scene and I am thrilled to create an event here that encourages people to dine out during the month and give restaurants – both vegan and vegan-friendly – a try for a good cause.”
Several plant-based companies, including Abbot’s Butcher, MyForest Foods, VFC and Vegan Wines have backed the event by sponsoring it. A portion of proceeds will go to Maggie Baird’s Support + Feed, a nonprofit founded in response to food insecurity and climate change.
‘Showcases the diversity’
“Hundreds of thousands of people take the Veganuary challenge every year and this event helps them see they can dine out around the city and find amazing vegan food, and hopefully encourage them to stick with being vegan after the month,” Edelman added.
“It also introduces new spots to vegans who dine out and showcases the diversity around the city.”
