*****You may not RSVP for more than one of our Thanksgiving events. If you RSVP yes for this one and you’ve already RSVP’d for another Thanksgiving meal of ours, please change that RSVP to no. Thank you.*****

It has long been a tradition for our group to organize a Meetup on Thanksgiving Day, for those of us who are in the city without their family over the holiday.

We also warmly invite those who may be going later in the day to their family celebrations, to start their Thanksgiving Day with fellow vegetarians and vegans.

Peacefood Café Downtown is the newer, sister restaurant of the very popular Peacefood Café UWS. It’s bigger & more comfortable at nearly twice the size, easy to get to, & has the same excellent food as the UWS Peacefood Cafe. Whether you’ve been here before or it is your first time, join us on Thanksgiving for a delectable lunch and wonderful company at Peacefood Café Downtown.

For Thanksgiving, Peacefood Cafe Downtown has a **special Thanksgiving Menu**. The Thanksgiving menu features two starters: **Chestnut Apple Bisque** ($12 bowl/$7 cup, gluten free) or **Raw Sushi** (julienne veggies, walnut pate, nori, sprouts, ginger, avocado) ($18, gluten free). Or, for $22 you can order **Raw Lasagna** (mushroom, zucchini, spinach, cashew cheese, marinara sauce – gluten free). (This is meant as a meal in itself, or you can add one or more starters.) … **Or, order a “Deluxe” meal (RECOMMENDED), a large meal of traditional Thanksgiving fare, for $38. These Deluxe meals include your choice of four entrees PLUS ALL of the following: Homemade Stuffing (gluten free), Porcini & Wild Mushroom Gravy (gluten free), Orange Mashed Yam (gluten free), and Sauteed String Beans (gluten free).** These all come with your choice of any of the following four entrees, all for the $38 full-meal price: **Pan-Seared Lemon Caper Un-Turkey**, **Pom Pom Mushroom Pot Roast** (gluten free), **Stuffed Squash with Quinoa Pilaf** (quinoa, nuts, seeds, dried fruits & herbs) (gluten free), or **Lentil Walnut Loaf** (gluten free). **(Just to clarify, you get your choice of any of those four entrees, plus Homemade Stuffing, plus Porcini & Wild Mushroom Gravy, plus Orange Mashed Yam, plus Sauteed String Beans, all for $38.)** Only this Thanksgiving Menu will be served on Thanksgiving. (You can additionally order from a full selection of outstanding housemade desserts, and beverages, if desired.)

**Please arrive promptly at 1:00pm. There will be one seating only. Everyone pays for their own meal.**

NYCGo.com lists Peacefood Café as one of NYC’s healthiest restaurants. “Trying to change your relationship with food? This is a good place to start. Indian-spiced chickpea fries are a swell snack, as are the pan-seared mushroom and chive dumplings with ginger-balsamic dipping sauce. … The many facets of each dish breed indifference to animal protein. They do the same thing for refined sugar, especially when it comes to raw cacao mousse pie in a walnut-coconut-date crust. ”

New York Magazine’s take on Peacefood, “Vegan cafe/diner combo promises to please all but the most devoted carnivore.” CBS New York rates it as one of the 10 best restaurants for Vegetarians in NYC: “At this elegant upscale vegan bakery and cafe, baked goods are made with spelt instead of flour. Even their vegan Caesar salad has spelt croutons. The chocolate chip cookie sandwich has a oozy-chocolate pudding like center in the middle of two crispy spelt cookies. Or try the grasshopper variety with a tangy mint filling.”

Indeed, Peacefood is also known for their extensive and heavenly dessert menu, including tiramisu,cheesecake, macaroons, brownies, key lime pie, strawberry shortcake, and chocolate chip cookie sandwiches. The Culinary Society of Columbia University says: “Many of the desserts vegans must constantly deprive themselves of were there: cupcakes, tiramisu, and brownies. We ordered both the tiramisu and a cinnamon bun; we were both amazed on how identical each tasted to its dairy filled alternative.”

For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. We’ll be meeting right outside Peacefood Cafe at 1:00pm, and then walking in as a group when the restaurant opens at 1:00pm. Everyone pays for their own meal. Easy!

**Please arrive promptly at 1:00pm. There will be one seating only. Everyone pays for their own meal.**

**Train Directions:** Take the L, N, Q, R, 4, 5 & 6 Trains to Union Sq. 14th St.

*****Please RSVP for one Thanksgiving venue only. Please do not RSVP at two Thanksgiving venues to hold a spot at an additional venue.*****

Looking forward to see you on Thanksgiving for a delicious lunch with our wonderful vegetarian & vegan members.
