Plant-based chain Veggie Grill is set to open its first New York City outlet on December 13.

The new store, which marks the company’s 37th location, is at 12 W. 23rd St in the Flatiron District. The 2,000-square-foot space offers solo dining spots as well as communal tables and kiosks for ordering.

Dishes on offer include the VG Beyond Burger, Santa Fe Crispy Chicken’ sandwich, Rustic Farm Bowl, and the Mediterranean Supergreens Salad among others.

‘We can’t wait’

“We are thrilled to bring handcrafted 100 percent plant-based food to New Yorkers that share our belief around making food matter more,” CEO Steve Heeley said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“We can’t wait to share our chef-inspired dishes with this great city as we continue our east coast expansion delivering affordable and delicious plant-based meals to conscious consumers.”

The chain will donate opening day profits to non-profit GrowNYC which runs environmental programs.
