I recently visited New Paltz to explore the town’s vegan eats and treats for a story. I knew the area was pretty vegan friendly but was even more impressed when I was on the ground experiencing the options and chatting with folks. I had been to the area before to experience Mohonk Mountain House and was happy to devote this trip to visiting the areas 100% vegan as well as vegan friendly establishments.
1st stop: Lunch at Karma Road- 100% vegan deliciousness!
Onward to Lagusta’s Luscious Chocolate Shop…
and Lagusta’s Commissary
The heart of our visit was an overnight stay at Hungry Ghost Guesthouse- an all vegan lodging and active retreat.
Hungry Ghost is known for catering to those who love sports and athletic pursuits while traveling, but they are also known and beloved for their vegan dishes.
Last stop at Mountain Brauhaus where I had this phenomenal vegan entrée
Roasted Local Squash Blossoms stuffed with Local Red Polenta and Local Ronde de Nice Squash stuffed with Farro, with Hakurei Turnips, Chantarelle Mushrooms & Pea-Shallot Sauce
I’m currently working on a story for print later this year to include interviews with owners of these establishments and more on our experience.
