Considered by many vegans to be among the best meat-free restaurants in Manhattan, this welcoming restaurant (which has both Upper East and Upper West Side locations) serves healthy, fresh and surprising dishes prepared by a kosher kitchen. For an appetizer, the indulgent nachos—piled high with guacamole, pico de gallo, tofu sour cream, tapioca cheese and grilled seitan—are a must order, while entrées a curried vegetable cake that’s aromatic with cumin and turmeric.

Whoever said that vegan food is boring and tasteless hasn’t even been to the Candle Café. All foods at Candle café are free of hormones, pesticides, and chemicals. It’s by far one of the best vegan restaurants in the city. This is the type of food that makes you feel better for eating it. You never feel bloated or like you have over indulged. Try the buffalo crusted cauliflower for an appetizer if you like things spicy. There also are many delicious salads, burgers and sides. Candle Café makes eating a healthy plant based diet fun, exciting, and very satisfying.
