My 10 Fave Spots To Eat In NYC

My 10 Fave Spots To Eat In NYC

  1. Pure Food & Wine

This place is amazing, by far one of the best raw food restaurants I have been to. It is the fine dining of raw food, serving delicious gourmet, juices and smoothies. They also serve cocktails, wine and have an amazing tasting menu, so if you can’t decide like I couldn’t, you can try a whole selection of things!


  1. One Lucky Duck

The juice and take out of pure food and wine (they have 2 locations), great if you want something quick to grab and go. They have a wide variety of salads, entrees, juices, smoothies, desserts and the most amazing range of raw snacks.

My favorite’s: S&M salad, portabello & hemp seed burger, swan greens juice and the mallomar bar (its to die for!).

  1. Jivamukti Cafe

I absolutely love this place and ate lunch here quite regularly; as a yoga studio it has a great vibe and is the perfect place to come and sit by yourself if you need to do some work (they have free Wi-Fi).

The macro bowls are fantastic, as you can pick and choose what you want to go in them along with your choice of dressing; I particularly like the turmeric dressing.


  1. Angelica Kitchen

A great spot for simple, good quality food. They also do great macro bowls. However, be warned seating is on first come first serve basis and it can get quite busy in the evenings, especially on the weekends.


  1. Quintessence

A small, quiet restaurant with amazing 100% organic, vegan and raw food. Definitely one of my favorite places to eat. I would highly recommend the raw sushi or raw burger (photographed below).

  1. Gingersnaps Organic

An earth friendly restaurant providing a totally raw, vegan and gluten-free menu. Whether you want a quick salad to go, kombucha and kale chips for a late night snack, or a full-blown, gourmet raw experience, this place can deliver.


  1. Candle 79

Sophisticated and stylish, it’s widely recognized as one of the best upscale (but still affordable) vegan restaurants in the city. The food is exquisite and inventive with an extensive menu to choose from. Great place to bring non-vegans.


  1. Blossom

With 4 different restaurants over Manhattan, you can be sure there is one not to far away. The menus are creative and diverse, with both tapas to share and larger entrees. Also a great place to bring your non-vegan friends.


  1. Beyond Sushi

Fresh, locally sourced ingredients assembled into delicious pieces of art. Beyond Sushi has two fully vegan locations in Manhattan. I went to the one in Chelsea market and got the sweet tree roll, which I would highly recommend.

  1. Pala Pizza

If you love pizza, this place does possibly the best pizza I have ever had (plus it was gluten-free and vegan!). The menu is not all vegan, but there is a separate section on the menu for vegan salads, pastas and pizzas. Definitely worth visiting!

Other great places include: Candle cafe, The Butchers Daughter, Juice Press, Organic Avenue, Rockin’ Raw, Peacefood Café, Hangawi and Dirt Candy.


There is also an amazing shop in NYC called Live Live & Organic that is definitely worth visiting if you are looking for some great raw, organic beauty products or any other health products. I literally spent ages in here, wanting to buy everything!
