Healthy Food Reigns at New York City's Vegetarian Food Festival

Restaurant Week is over (long live Restaurant Week!), but New York City's food festivals are as omnipresent as the skyscrapers. This weekend, foodies, locavores, vegetarians, vegans, "flexitarians" (omnivores, in other words), and anyone who wants to experiment with new (and deliciously healthy) cuisine can visit the Vegetarian Food Festival.

Vegetarian food companies, restaurants, and health and wellness vendors will congregate on 18th Street to offer food samples and full meals from New York City’s top vegetarian restaurants and food companies. There will also be live entertainment and activities throughout the weekend.

The Festival will take place on March 3 and 4th at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 W. 18th Street). VIP tickets are available at https://nycvegetarianfoodfestival.chirrpy.com.
