Red Bamboo has been a West Village staple for over 15 years providing delicious vegan and vegetarian comfort food. Our tasty menu includes our famous BBQ Buffalo Wings, Creole Soul Chicken and BBQ Ribs with one twist - they are all completely meatless! Our menu is 100% vegetarian and predominantly vegan. With mouth watering desserts from Vegan Treats and Klein's Ice Cream, Red Bamboo is proof that even vegans know how to indulge.

I just ate at this amazing "vegan comfort food" restaurant. To say that even a meat eater will find amazing food like "pork chops" with "bacon" collards and mashed potatoes with gravy. I started with "chicken" satay and that was a fun appetizer. Please go...More

Went there as a non-vegan with a vegan friend, was prepared to set my bar low but actually truly enjoyed the cuisine! The cheesecake especially was divine and for a totally affordable price. A must!

Small venue with a lot of variety of vegetarian dishes. Taste was great. We had to wait for half an hour but went for a walk in Washington Square Park meanwhile.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
