Vegetarian/Vegan Thanksgiving Lunch at Soy & Sake - Venue #1

Update: If this event is full, please RSVP for our Thanksgiving Lunch at Venue #2 (Vegetarian's Paradise 2). For information on that venue and to RSVP: click here.

It has long been a tradition for our group to organize a Meetup on Thanksgiving Day, for those of us who are in the city without their family over the holiday.

We also warmly invite those who may be going later in the day to their family celebrations, to start their Thanksgiving Day with fellow vegetarians and vegans.

We will be meeting for Thanksgiving at one of our group's favorite restaurants, Soy & Sake. Click here for Soy & Sake's extensive and delicious all-vegetarian menu.

**Please arrive promptly at 12 noon. There will be one seating only. Due to the large number of people arriving at one time, you may have to wait a bit for your food - please be patient. You will get your own check, with tax and tip included.**

Soy and Sake is always a huge treat for our members. Between the excellence and deliciousness of the food, and the extremely wide-ranging menu -- with the largest range of dishes of any vegetarian restaurant I know -- you could eat here all the time and have a very different and extremely delicious dinner night after night.

Their menu is extraordinarily wide-ranging. It starts off with a large selection of delicious vegan sushi and bento boxes and proceeds to run the gamut from Japanese to Chinese to Thai to Malaysian -- with an amazing variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes of all sorts. There are also many excellent vegan versions of chicken, beef, fish and traditional vegetable dishes prepared in myriad ways. There really is something for everyone here, and it is all gourmet. And reasonably priced!

Soy and Sake also has a full bar. As their website states, "Soy & Sake's full bar offers a variety of drinks and cocktails with a focus on sake. From the time-honored and traditional 'rice wine' to the modern and innovative sake-tini, the possibilities are endless."

Zagat.com says: "Don’t be afraid, the food is tasty as well as healthy at this vegetarian Pan-Asian eatery along the West Village’s busy Seventh Avenue strip; it’s particularly appreciated for its interesting and delicious sushi rolls (many featuring "vegan seafood") and cocktails, served up in simply appointed digs with a full bar."

The popular JL Goes Vegan blog raves, "What a feast for four! This meal was fantastic – great prices for big food! Truth be told, Dave and I were the ones who chowed down on the “junkier” food (yeah, we went with sandwiches at a Pan-Asian joint…so?!) while we admired Jasmin and Mariann’s choices of hearty, healthy salads and sushi." (JLGoesVegan.com)

For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. It will be easy to find our group: just ask a member of the waitstaff where the "Meetup" is. Most of the people in the restaurant will be in our large group. Everyone gets their own check, with tax and tip included. Easy!

** Please arrive promptly at 12 noon. There will be one seating only. Due to the large number of people arriving at one time, you may have to wait a bit for your food - please be patient. You will get your own check, with tax and tip included. **

Train Directions: A, B, C, D, E, F & M Trains to West 4th St.-Washington Sq., or 1 Train to Christopher St.

Join us on Thanksgiving Day for a delicious vegetarian/vegan meal with our wonderful members.

    Hi, I would love to join this time. Let me know detail. Thank you so much. Yoko

      Hi Yoko. You can't. It's full. But the good news is, there is an equally excellent meetup that we scheduled at a nearby location. Just read the first two sentences of the description of this meetup (this meetup page you are looking at now), click the "click here" link at the end of the second sentence, and you will be taken to the other meetup page. Best, David
