Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots is lacking in vegan options but they do have one that everyone has access to for the 2023 season.
In this guide, we also included Gillette Stadium’s policies for bringing food into the game in case you’re thinking of going that route.
Finally, we were given the most helpful information from a VeggL user if you prefer to eat at a restaurant before or after the game or event you are attending.
If you know something we don’t or see a change that needs to be made to this guide, please reach out and let us know! We consistently want to keep our guides up to date and your insight can be very helpful.

Vegan Options Near Gillette Stadium
We always like to grab a bite to eat before (and sometimes after!) the game.
The options we are sharing below were provided by a VeggL user who visits this area often. They are in the Patriot Place. It’s the shopping plaza where Gillette Stadium is located. Thank you, Megan!!
The quoted descriptions and details below were provided by Megan. 🙂
“Citizen Crust has appetizers, meals, and even a giant cotton candy for dessert! Tofu nuggets “tuggets”, sexy cauli appetizer (the BEST cauliflower wings I’ve ever had- and I’ve had a lot!), tofu sandwich, super food bowl, vegan chorizo bowl, curried seitan, vegan cheese for pizza, cotton candy dessert, etc. They also have a pick up area with some “ready to-go” meals in a refrigerated section, and I’ve spotted the superfood bowl there regularly.”
“Ancholitos makes vegan burritos, tacos, bowls, etc. They have impossible meat, vegan chipotle mayo, vegan cheese, fried plantains that you can use in their dishes (I typically get a vegan plantain burrito!). If you order online to pick up, vegan things are clearly marked.”
Bar Louie offers an Impossible Burger but we have not confirmed if it is vegan in its entirety. We suggest asking if you plan to eat here.
Tavolino offers two menu items that are vegan… Pasta Primavera and Risotto.
If any of these options are too much of a wait, you can stop by Trader Joe’s and pick up a wrap or other to-go items.
