It’s a platform for plant-forward dining featuring the best plant-based meals from restaurants in NYC. We feature existing plant-based restaurants and we work with traditional restaurants to craft new plant-based menus.
Plant-forward is an approach to cooking that focuses care and attention on plants (vegetables, legumes, fruits, etc). We find the kitchens that are innovating with a plant-forward consciousness.
Yes. Everything that appears and is offered on Papaya is exclusively plant-based and meets strict vegan standards. Some restaurant partners have 100% plant-based kitchens and some have mixed kitchens.
Papaya’s for anyone interested in eating more plants without the hassle (not just vegans or plant-based eaters). We serve those ready to make the shift to eating more plant-based for themselves and the environment.
We imagine a world where plant-based options aren’t in the ruffled bottom corner of a menu, but the main dish. Making plant-based menus mainstream, abundant and available is our North Star.
