Supervegan.com is definitely a great resource... there are too many places not to miss in NYC :)

Just to give you a highly subjective shortlist, I went last year and these were my highlights:

Upper East Side
http://www.candle79.com/ Expensive but very good. A couple of blocks away is Candle Cafe which is their cheaper sister restaurant

East Village
http://www.lulassweetapothecary.com/ Ice-cream parlour :)
http://www.atlascafe.net/ Non-veggie but vegan friendly, stocks many many vegan cakes and gets an AWESOME vegan doughnut delivery Tuesdays (late afternoons)
http://www.angelicakitchen.com/ Hippy food, pretty good tho

Lower East Side
http://www.babycakesnyc.com/ cupcakes galore... very good ones
https://www.teany.com/ Moby's wife's cafe - veggie
I also went to this museum in the area: http://www.tenement.org/ which was a good peek at NY ghettos from 150 yrs ago

NB if you need falafel there is a Maoz in Times Square.

If you get time to venture out of Manhattan, the following in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn were also good:
http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/3/622375/re ... e-Brooklyn veggie cafe
http://dizzys.com/ non-veggie but good diner, which a lot of celebs take their kids to
http://www.caracasarepabar.com - non veggie but good tofu options

We also recently had a great post on the subject of vegan dining in NYC: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=23045 :D

if you want to squat/deadlift there is a gym in Brooklyn that would work and one in Manhattan (i think) that I lifted at with VeganJosh recently.
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?

I was gonna say http://www.littleladsonline.com/ for breakfast but they seem to have lost their space. Run by 7:th day adventist, massive amount of food. Maybe they re-open before you get there?

Now I'm hungry AND want to go to NY...

Too bad about Little Lads, it was definitely a great idea. I visited the one in Portland, Maine but from what I read they were quite similar.

S'nice for breakfast, not a vegan place though.

Also, I'd definitely recommend hooking up with Kali 8)

Grody? I haven't hear that term in a few years :)
