What we're about

Want to eat at all the coolest plant-based spots but lack someone enthused enough to come with?

Join this meetup! We'll go to restos, vegan events, have the occasional private dinner party, attend private chef events, picnic and just enjoy eating awesome whole-food plant-based focused veg meals around NYC.

About Me:

I am not vegan. However, I've enjoyed a primarily plant-based diet for the past 9 years (WFPB) and have made a career exclusively in plant-based cooking. A chef by trade, I've had the pleasure of cooking and managing in restaurants such as the Michelin-starred Nix, XYST, Arata, ABCV, Ladybird, Mother of Pearl, and Cienfuegos. I enjoy cooking but more than half the fun is in the eating!

I think everyone should eat more vegetables...they're delish! There are so many vegan restaurants in NYC to explore with more popping up each day...Let's go Veggin' Around Town!
