We have attempted to contact Madison Square Garden multiple times over the past few years with no luck so we can do is go off of what they show on their website and the feedback we get from our VeggL users.
As of 2022, there is one really great option for vegans at section 116. If you happen to see any other options anywhere else in MSG, please let us know!
Per Madison Square Garden, “most locations open for all Knicks and Rangers games. Please call Guest Relations at 212.465.6225 to inquire if a location will be open for any other specific event. Stands may be closed without notice.”

Vegan Options Near Madison Square Garden
There are quite a few 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.
On 8th, one block over from MSG… For a quick bite to eat, stop by Panda Express and order their Beyond Orange Chicken with steamed rice, chow mein, super greens & a vegetable spring roll.
These options would be considered “accidentally vegan” and cross-contamination can/will occur. You choose your level of comfort when eating at a restaurant this not 100% vegan or does not offer a vegan cooking space.
A 10 minute walk (2 blocks) will have you at an upscale vegan Korean restaurant. Hangawi has an incredible menu that includes vegan gluten-free options as well.
Vegan On The Fly
A 20 minute walk from MSG, and a couple of blocks past Bryant Park, is Vegan On The Fly. Vegan On The Fly considers themselves a quick service restaurant with NYC vegan street food. You can even order online to have it ready to pick up when you arrive. The reviews have my mouth watering.
P.S. Kitchen is our last recommendation. 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.
