Where to eat during Vegan Restaurant Week in Richmond

Check out what local restaurants are participating in V72x2, an annual celebration of unique vegan cooking.


Philly Vegan has vegan milkshakes, tacos, and steak stackers as special offerings.

Richmond’s 144-hour plant-powered event kicks off on Tuesday, Jan. 23. V72x2 — aka Vegan Restaurant Week — continues through Sunday, Jan. 28.

Put on by Richmond Vegan Action, the annual event encourages local restaurants to offer unique or new vegan options and raises funds for a cause. This year, donations will go towards Matchbox Mutual Aid.

Each of the participating businesses has specials for the week. We’ve got our eye on the vegan Chik’n biryani at Gold Lion Community Cafe and the new carrot ginger flavor from Ninja Kombucha.
