Celebrate World Vegetarian Day on Oct. 1 At These Roosevelt Island Area Vegetarian Eateries

October 1, 2021

It’s never been a better time to be vegetarian. The days of having solely a salad offering are gone – these days, restaurants are mixing up vegetarian dishes by using vegetables to mimic traditional meals and create truly mouthwatering dishes for everyone, no matter their diets.

On World Vegetarian Day on Oct. 1, you can celebrate just that at these restaurants near your Octagon apartment offering creative renditions of vegetarian dishes. Here, you can enjoy a delicious meal without the guilt!

Kajitsu, located at 125 E 39th St, New York which is 16 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a tranquil, minimalist Japanese restaurant serving upscale, fixed-price vegetarian meals.

Kajitsu means “fine day” or “day of celebration” in Japanese. The restaurant serves shojin cuisine, which is a type of vegetarian cooking that originates in Zen Buddhism. 
Even though it does not use meat or fish, shojin is regarded as the foundation of all Japanese cuisine.

Hummus Kitchen, located at 1613 2nd Ave, New York which is 16 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a Mediterranean eatery specializing in hummus and interesting vegetarian dishes.

Their simple menu draws inspiration from Mediterranean cuisine, with a seasonal kitchen that uses raw ingredients like vegetables, whole grains and beans. Their goal is to offer you a place you will want to come back to, just like home. Make sure you try their hummus, which is filled with protein, vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium and a lot of flavor, all alongside a fresh, hot pita.
