When you think of Super Bowl cuisine, vegan food might not come to mind, but there are plenty of vegan options here in Westchester.

Mozzarella sticks, Buffalo wings, three-cheese dip, all of the pizza…these are the kinds of foods that people crave and salivate over on Super Bowl Sunday. But, what if you are vegan? It might be hard to find anything to eat at your local bar or even in your friends’ living room.

Over the last five years, consumer eating habits have shifted significantly with the introduction of plant-based options that are now filling supermarket aisles, and restaurants are shifting menus to accommodate the “vegan curious” as well. And while some might choose to put their curiosity aside to literally “pig” out during the big game, below are six spots where you can order vegan food to go in Westchester County.

Barely Vegans

2 Eastchester Rd, New Rochelle; 914.373.2746
