This page was inspired by one of our readers who reached out to let us know of an awesome vegan option inside Madison Square Garden.
Thanks to Elizabeth for letting us know that there is an Arancini Bros Rice Balls inside Madison Square Garden that serves Vegan Rice Balls. On top of having a location inside MSG, Arancini Bros Rice Balls has a full location located on Essex St. with even more options.
She also let us know that they have a location inside nearby Citi Field as well!
Not sure as of yet, any other vegan options inside Madison Square Garden, but that’s a good start! We’ll continue to update here as we learn more!

Vegan Options Near Madison Square Garden
There are some GREAT vegan options near Madison Square Garden if you want to grab a bite to eat before or after the game. Here are a couple recommendations –
About four blocks to the north of the arena is a Beyond Sushi. This is actually the same Beyond Sushi that Jen went to on her last trip to New York.
All I can remember saying is, “I could eat here everyday.” Their sushi is not like typical sushi and not because it’s 100% vegan but because they have a very unique spin on these little bites. Highly recommended.
About 10 blocks south from Madison Square Garden on 8th Avenue is Willow.
Willow is an “easy going bistro serving plant-based homestyle cooking amid compact surroundings”. Reviews for Willow are incredible and a lot of people recommend the “chicken” sandwich and the mac and cheese.
P.S. Kitchen is a little further away than the other two locations, but it was Jen’s favorite place that she ate at with her sister on that same New York trip. It’s still less than a mile and according to Google Maps, about a 15-20 minute walk.
We fell in love with the ambiance, our beautiful drinks, my Lasagna, her Vegan Chicken Pot Pie and our yummy Apple Crumble!
You will more than likely need to make a reservation and give yourself enough time if choosing to eat here before an event at Madison Square Garden.
