First Plant-Based Food Hall to Open in NYC

HOME will feature vegan food from Cinnamon Snail, Beyond Sushi, and more!

HOME Food Hall will become the first all-vegan establishment of its kind when it opens in New York City in the fall of 2018. The concept is a collaboration between four founders—Michael Mueller, Otis Duffy, Sarah Gross of vegan confectioners Rescue Chocolate, and Kiki Adami of Veganizer NYC. HOME will host 12 vegan food vendors—including beloved food truck turned brick-and-mortar Cinnamon Snail and vegan company Beyond Sushi—originating from New York, Philadelphia, California, and Chicago. The food hall will occupy a 7,000 square-foot space in Manhattan's Midtown East neighborhood, where, in addition to food vendors, the space will be used to host fitness classes, movie screenings, parties, and community events. “We are choosing plant-based because it is the future,” the HOME Food Hall team tells VegNews. “More and more people are leaving animal products behind, and the planet needs this.” In the coming years, New York will be teeming with new plant-based eateries, including Brooklyn’s butcher shop Monk’s Vegan Delicatessen, slated to open this spring.
