Welcome to the second annual Vegan Dining Month taking place across New York City the entire month of January. In conjunction with Veganuary, an international non-profit challenging people to go vegan for the month, Vegans, Baby’s annual event celebrates plant-based dining in New York City. This is a guide to all restaurants participating in the 2024 Vegan Dining Month.


At the end of the month, each restaurant will donate a portion of the proceeds from their specific dishes below to the West Side Campaign Against Hunger (WSCAH). 

Since 1979, WSCAH has pursued its mission of ensuring all New Yorkers have access with dignity to a choice of healthy food and supportive services, such as SNAP (food stamps). WSCAH serves nutritious food to over 80,000 food-insecure New Yorkers annually. Last year, 55% of all food distributed by WSCAH was fresh produce. WSCAH is proud to offer vegan/vegetarian options, ensuring every family receives healthy food that meets their dietary and cultural needs and preferences.
