As a vegan for the past three years, I am beyond excited to participate in NYC Restaurant Week and indulge in some truly delicious plant-based food. I am excited that one of my favorite restaurants, HanGawi, is one of the vegan options for NYC restaurant week
What is restaurant week?
For those who may not be familiar, restaurant week is a special event that takes place in cities across the country, during which participating restaurants offer special fixed-price menus at a discounted rate. It’s a fantastic opportunity to try new restaurants and diverse types of cuisine without breaking the bank.
As a vegan, I am always on the lookout for new and exciting plant-based options. While I have certainly found some amazing vegan dishes at various restaurants over the past three years, I am particularly excited about the opportunity to experience the creative and delicious vegan options for NYC restaurant week.
Many restaurants have been expanding their vegan options, and during restaurant week, they are showcasing their best. From mouth-watering appetizers to decadent desserts, I can’t wait to try it all. I am looking forward to trying out some new and exciting flavors, as well as experiencing the artistry and skill of some of the best chefs in the city.
