What we're about

This group is for anyone who follows (or is interested in) Paleo, Keto, or any related form of natural/lower carb diet, for any reason (weight loss, general health, coolest people, etc!). We "meat" at least once/month in or around NYC and to just eat & chat about this WOE!

The purpose of this group is to explore restaurants in the greater NYC Metropolitan area that offer good Keto/Paleo options. I aim to schedule at least one "Meatup" a month, but I hope that everyone can participate in planning additional events (let me know if you're interested in organizing one!). In meeting regularly, we can share knowledge and progress, as well as provide support for this WOE (since I know a lot of people found out about it from the internet and need resources IRL).

I'm hoping to create/maintain a vibrant, engaged group that "meats" often! :)

There are dozens of other resources, but these are some top ones! Please feel free to send me yours so I can add to the list :).


It costs me ~$180/year to manage this group on Meetup, and it costs a little more in transportation between NJ (where I live) & NYC (although I do love coming into the city!). So I'm always open to accepting ANY donations, either in person (preferred) or on this site. If you don't have any money to donate, have no fear... I'm also always looking for more event hosts! So if you have a favorite spot to get keto and/or paleo food in or near NYC (or even just sending me a new place to go would be so helpful!), let me know, and we can co-host an event there in the future...

***I am waiving all membership fees going forward, especially since this pandemic has really upended this group!***

It’s really important to us that this group does NOT have official sponsors telling us what we can or can’t do or trying to solicit info (even though I frequently get asked!). You guys aren’t for sale <3.

**This is a Meatup group hosted BY keto/paleo people FOR keto/paleo people**

Thanks, guys :).
