NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: A restaurant oasis in a city built on hot dogs and pizza, the Candle 79 restaurant on Manhattan's Upper East Side provides a delectable menu of organic vegetarian, and vegan, entrees and desserts. Candle 79 NYC's excellent service and creative menu makes it the place to eat for food fresh from the farm. 

Why We Dine: With a bright, colorful interior, friendly staff and creative chefs, Candle 79 NYC is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in New York City.

  • Creative Cuisine: When it comes to vegetarian, and especially vegan cuisine, the pool of ingredients the chef can choose from are obviously limited when compared to a more conventional restaurant, so creativity is a must. The Candle 79 Restaurant answers the call with inventive dishes like the hearty butternut squash stuff avocado or the Moroccan spiced chickpea cake.
  • Eco-Friendly: The ethos of Candle 79 is to reduce harm to the environment through a plant-based diet and locally grown food, which reduces carbon emissions. The Candle Restaurant NYC also happens to be particularly adept at turning these local and organic ingredients into tasty first-class entrees.
  • Farm to Table: One of the highlights of a commitment to locally grown organic food is that its naturally going to lend itself to some of the freshest cuisine available, and Candle 79 NYC turns it out with style and great service. 

Inside Knowledge: The Candle Cafe in New York City was the first Certified Green Restaurant by the Green Restaurant Association in New York City.

We Recommend:

  • Black Bean Pumpkin Seed Burger: This tasty alternative to the hamburger at Candle 79 NYC is a black bean and pumpkin seed patty topped with local mixed lettuces, and avocado with a side of polenta fries and some organic chipotle ketchup.
  • Spaghetti and Wheat Balls: The spaghetti and wheat balls at the Candle 79 restaurant features an amazing combotruffled tomato sauce with roasted garlic. Served with spinach and cashew parmesan, this near-Italian cuisine will excite anybody.
