I know NYC is awash with great vegan restaurants. And on my next trip I plan to visit many of them. However... it seems 90% of them are south of 14th...<br><br><br><br>
And I'm planning on doing a visit to the MoMa and The Natural History Museum and I'm struggling to find places nearby both of those Museums to grab a bite.<br><br><br><br>
Any advice?

I've been to the MoMA a few times before, and I'm pretty sure they have a few vegan things in their cafe. However, everything is in extremely tiny portions and extremely overpriced. Plus, it's nothing very substantial. I brought my own lunch in and nobody seemed to mind me eating it there. If it's possible, you might want to consider at least bringing a few small things in case you can't find much there.

Zen Palate is within walking distance of the MoMA. They have a website: <a href="http://www.zenpalate.com" target="_blank">www.zenpalate.com</a>. I've been here just a couple of times, but each visit was delicious.<br><br><br><br>
Candle Cafe, the darling of veg restaurants, it would seem (everyone loves it, except me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">) would be a bit of a walk, but not bad if it were a nice day.<br><br><a href="http://www.candlecafe.com" target="_blank">www.candlecafe.com</a>

663 Ninth Ave. (at 46th St)<br><br><br><br>
This one is like 1/2 mile from the museum. The neighborhood's pretty interesting, if a bit yuppified, but it's been 2 years since I was there, so it may have changed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I ate vegetarian in the Nat. History Museum, but that was very long ago, so I'm not sure how friendly there are. I'd bet though that it is muy expensive.<br><br><br><br>
Have you been to either of these places before? NYC is one of my favorite places to visit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Unlike other parts of the world, I've found that you can find a veg*n meal just about anywhere in NYC, even if it isn't a veg*n specific restaurant. Could always just hop on the 5th ave bus downtown if you wanted to check out restaurants around that way.
