The Vegan Super Bowl Food to Add to Your Spread in Westchester

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.

Empire Bagels

3535 Crompond Rd, Cortlandt Manor; 914.402.4477
20 N Salem Rd, Cross River; 914.763.6800
379 Halstead Ave, Harrison; 914.341.1341

Way more than just bagels and with multiple locations throughout Westchester, Empire Bagels is a go-to when you want to up your vegan catering game. The hotspot has an entire menu devoted to vegan sandwiches (not including the basic bagel and vegan cream cheese) with options like meatball parm, chicken parm, Philly steak, and chicken club.

Falafel Taco

30 Wheeler Ave, Pleasantville; 914.579.2526

Falafel is a great go-to fried food for vegans to munch on during the game, and this Mexi-Raeli shop does it right. This eatery has a vegan menu in addition to its main menu, offering traditional falafel tacos (chickpea falafel, Israeli salad, tahini sauce, hummus) on Israeli pita, vegan tacos (lentil salad, shredded cabbage, chipotle tahini) baklava, babka, and more.

Little B’s

49 Main St, Tarrytown; 914.631.2228

Set up a make-your-own burger bar with everything you need from Little B’s. The eatery has an exceptional variety of toppings (20, not including cheese!), buns, proteins, and sauces that will make everyone happy. Stack up on bases from Beyond Meat or go the more typical route of a portobello mushroom, veggie, or black bean burger. Vegan cheese and vegan mayo are also on the menu.

MP Taverna

1 Bridge St, Irvington; 914.231.7854

Greek food, in all of its simply grilled glory, is usually a safe haven for anyone with a dietary restriction — especially vegans. Chef-owner Michael Psilakis offers a plethora of snacks for anyone watching the game. Load up on dips including garlic and sundried tomato hummus and baba ghanoush (served with flame-grilled pita) or falafel souvlaki complete with a side of smashed fries. And who says you can’t have a salad option during the game? It doesn’t have to be all fried food and dips. Try MP’s pickled beet salad with shaved fennel and heirloom carrots.

Root2Rise

359 Manville Rd, Pleasantville; 914.769.8460

This 100% plant-based, vegan, and gluten-free cafe has vegans covered for the Super Bowl. Selections here include sandwiches like the masala grilled cheese stuffed with diced avocado, tomatoes, and onions or the vegetable panini filled with roasted eggplant, bell peppers, spinach, pea shoots, and red onion with your choice of a sauce or spread, like pink or green hummus, garlic chili oil, and almond cilantro chutney. For riffs on traditional game-day fare, there are five varieties of pizza, including Buffalo tofu and pesto, a fan favorite, and mac ‘n cheese. And because every party needs dessert, check out the assortment of sweets including chocolate chip cookies, cookie dough truffles, brownies, and more.

The Rye Grill & Bar

1 Station Plz, Rye; 914.967.0332

With a seriously large menu, there is always something for everyone here, and that includes vegans. The kitchen is more than willing to tweak dishes to meet vegan needs, such as pizzas, pastas, and more. Already vegan are the four-layer dip with tri-color chips, black beans, corn, avocado, and plum tomato salsa, as well as guacamole and chips, plus the side of grilled vegetables — ideal vegan additions to your Super Bowl lineup.
