New Web Site Hosts Updated List of Veg-Friendly Kosher Restaurants in the NYC Area

Last year, I blogged about a list of vegan, vegetarian, and vegetarian-friendly restaurants in the New York City area that have kosher certification. Cathy Resler, organizer of the NYC Jewish Veg*ns MeetUp group, has created a Web site featuring an updated version of her list. It's now quite easy to navigate through the myriad options by alphabetical, geographic, or cuisine-based sorting.

As I mentioned in my previous post, "If you're looking for a kosher establishment with plentiful vegetarian and vegan options, there's no need to check both vegan and kosher restaurant guides when you can check only one list."

While I personally feel comfortable from a kosher perspective if I know that food is vegan, I respect that other people look for a hechsher regardless in their efforts to keep kosher. For them (and for people trying to pick a restaurant to meet them at), this list is an invaluable resource.

I listed about a dozen of the restaurants that I'd been to in my previous post, but it's worth noting that Buddha Bodai, Peacefood Cafe, and Sacred Chow aren't just places I've been to once or twice. I probably have gone to those three restaurants more than any other in New York City, and I highly recommend each of them.
