Vegan Institution ‘Sacred Chow’ to Shutter Next Week After 25 Years on Sullivan Street
A big loss to report for vegans.
Sacred Chow, the cozy Sullivan Street institution, announced its closure this week after an impressive twenty-five -year run. Final day is next Monday (September 14).
In the meantime, the Greenwich Village restaurant is selling off all its equipment, and giving freebies, under the temporary banner of the Sacred Chow General Store.
“To all my fellow covid-strapped vegan chefs & owners, come take a look, everything is at near-nothing or free, tons of stainless steel shelving, tables, restaurant-kitchen supplies & equipment, big & small, all vegan clean! There’s lots to grab,” the Instagram post reads.
Sacred Chow was founded on Hudson Street in June 1995 by owner-chef Cliff Preefer, offering a series of plant proteins by the pound, along with pre-made juices, soups, stews, and a full bakery. The move to Sullivan Street happened a decade later, changing its format to a cafe/bistro.

So many of you have been such a big beautiful part of SC's history, both on Hudson Street & Sullivan. Thank you so much. We will be closing down SC on Sullivan Street on Monday, September 14th, but we'll be reopening, briefly, as a SC General Store pop up, on September 10th @ 5-9pm, & the 12th & 13th @ 1-5pm. There's lots of free & near-free stuff; there'll be packaged ingredients, fresh, frozen, & bulk, SC keepsakes, lots of kitchen stuff, loads of free extension & Ethernet cords, everything but the floor. To all my fellow covid-strapped vegan chefs & owners, come take a look, everything is at near-nothing or free, tons of stainless steel shelving, tables, restaurant-kitchen supplies & equipment, big & small, all vegan clean! There's lots to grab. We'll have some fav SC goodies & sangria waiting for you. It'll be fun.
