In a world where it seems like we are constantly bombarded with negative news, it’s always refreshing to know that there are kind people out there, trying to make the world a better place. Take for instance, PS Kitchen, a new vegan restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen, New York, that will be donating all of their profits to charity organizations that aim to help those living in poverty, such as The Doe Fund and Share Hope.
The restaurant’s mission states, “P.S. Kitchen commits to creating jobs for those marginalized in New York- such as clients of our partnering organizations, donating 100% of profits to sustainable charitable work locally and overseas, and providing New Yorkers with delicious entirely plant-based food options that are kind to the body and the earth.” Sounds like heaven to us!
So what’s on the menu? Yummy dishes such as the PS Burger (seen below!) made with the Beyond Burger, dairy-free queso, and thousand island dressing. There is also a vegan version of fettuccine alfredo with orzo and cream sauce.
And how did the name PS Kitchen come about? “This is more than a restaurant and the postscript reflects that there is more to the story,” explains co-owner Craig Cochran to the Gothamist. The restaurant seats 32 with an additional nine spaces at the bar and is housed in a 100-year-old building with exposed brick and marble. Cochran is no stranger to the world of plant-based restaurants as the owner of Terri, a fast-casual vegan restaurant with three locations in NYC – so we’re very excited to see the rise of this new endeavor!
Considering about 40 percent of Americans choose plant-based options when they eat out, PS Kitchen’s menu appeals to consumers who are looking to keep meat and dairy off the menu. As more people recognize the benefits to animals, the planet, and their personal health that come with eating more plant-based foods, eateries that cater to this growing trend are sure to see continued success. Plus, in the case of PS Kitchen, New Yorkers can help their local community every time they dine!
You can check out the full menu here, but if you start drooling, don’t say we didn’t warn you! Here’s hoping that more restaurants take the initiative to pave the way toward a more compassionate dining landscape.
