3 Delicious Plant-Based Meals To Try in New Haven

In this day and age, you either have a vegan friend or you are someone’s vegan friend. Plant-based foods are predicted to have a major moment in 2024, and thanks to innovative brands creating mock meats and dairy products out of nuts, veggies, and seeds, our collective march toward health has never been more comfortable. Despite our reputation as the pizza capital of the country, New Haven is home to a creative (and delicious) plant-based culinary culture. If you want to dip your toe into the plant-based pool, here are three dishes you must try in downtown.
