Have yourself a vegan Valentine!
This time last year, we never would have thought that the world would have unravelled as it has – and definitely wouldn’t have thought that we’d still be here in February 2021. But thankfully for us, not even a pandemic can stop the romance of Valentine’s Day! Planning this day to be just right might feel like a lot of pressure sometimes, so we’re here to help.

We’ve compiled a list of vegan-friendly restaurants that you can choose from to spend the day with your loved one, friends or family. Some have outdoor dining – like Plant Food + Wine in Venice, California – and most have options for takeaways if you’d prefer to spend the day at home.

1. Enjoy authentic French cooking from Delice Sarrasin – West Village, NYC

Who delivers romance better than the French? Located in the heart of West Village, this Parisian café has mastered vegan renditions of traditional French cuisine and is serving up decadence in the form of steak tartare, escargot, coq au vin, and a variety of plant-based cheeses! Oh, and did I mention they’ll make fresh croissants for you upon request? Grab your sweetheart and visit them for a Valentine’s Day brunch or dinner! Or if you and your SO prefer a night in, you can order takeaway or delivery and enjoy some vegan crêpes in your jammies!

2. Order spicy “tuna” from Shojin – Los Angeles, California

Sushi lovers, rejoice! This LA based restaurant is 100% plant-based and offers a wide variety of flavorful and creative Japanese dishes. Some of their must tries include the spicy “tuna” on crispy rice and their signature baked “crab cake” hand roll stuffed with avocado, veganaise and smoky sweet tamari sauce. They are currently offering takeaway and delivery options.

3. Melt over Mediterranean food at Crossroads Kitchen – Los Angeles, California

The reviews are in and Crossroads Kitchen in Los Angeles gets five stars! With minimal vegan cues and delicious food, most guests don’t even notice their Mediterranean menu is plant-based. The restaurant staff takes the necessary precautions of wearing masks, and reservations are currently required if you plan to dine in. But if staying at home is your preferred vibe, order a plate of the artichoke oysters and light up some candles for a romantic evening in.

4. Try Counter Culture's vegan menu – Austin, Texas

This small business specializes in vegan comfort food with a purpose, so if you’re looking to have a dining experience that leaves both your stomach and your heart feeling full, then Counter Culture is your guy. Their mission is to offer healthy, plant-based foods at a reasonable price, and support impacted Austin communities through their food donation program. Their plant-based Valentine’s day menu is nirvana and available for pre-order online! It includes roasted carrot soup, pesto filled white cheeze and house made crackers, seitan steak with mushroom gravy, chocolate mousse cups, and more. My mouth is watering as I’m typing this! To order ahead visit their website.

5. Gaze into each other’s eyes over at Gracias Madre – San Francisco, California

If you’re in the mood for Mexican food, then Gracias Madre is a great treat! This vegan and vegetarian-friendly restaurant serves authentic Mexican food that you will want to keep going back for. Everyone keeps going on about their enchiladas con mole and vegan flan (which are great) but not enough people talk about their jackfruit tacos. They’re also available to order for takeout. Don’t forget to grab a side of their guacamole and homemade corn tortillas to also enjoy at home! To order visit their website.

6. Have a romantic evening with Modern Love – Brooklyn, NYC

This fully vegan restaurant has such a wide selection of foods to try that you might have a hard time deciding. Treat your date to their “Chick’n Olive Lasagna” while you enjoy their jerk tofu bowl with coconut herb sauce and fried plantains. With both delivery and takeaway options, you can opt to spend the evening at home reveling in your modern love affair. To order visit their website.

7. Indulge in flavor at Plant Food + Wine – Venice, California

This elevated vegan restaurant has an artistic touch that is sure to impress your date! They have limited seating, so you’ll definitely have to reserve your spot before heading out. To book a table, their website offers a very easy to follow booking form. Once you have your table reserved, put on your best outfit, and head out for dinner. Try their Almond Udon, Beet Carpaccio, or Avocado Tikka.
