Widely believed to be the first vegetarian restaurant in New York City, Vegetarian Restaurant No. 1 opened its doors in 1895 on West 23rd Street. The limited opening-night menu included dishes that by today's standards would have been considered extremely simple, even boring: fruit soup, field salad with mayonnaise dressing, spaghetti with tomato sauce, and dates, figs, grapes, or rice pudding for dessert. Despite its humble beginnings, the vegetarian scene in Manhattan was born, and more than a century later, the city is ripe with exciting, exotic, guilt-free options for both vegetarians and vegans.Read More

Many eateries in Manhattan keep time with the Big Apple's nearly non-stop momentum, serving fast slices of fold-and-go pizza and giant, hand-held pretzels. But a step inside one of the city's Japanese kaiseki restaurants transports visitors to a very different New York. The pace slows to a methodical dance, highlighting as many as 15 fresh Japanese courses that shift seasonally, and are often plated with painstaking care. Short on time?
