The Best Pride Treats in NYC
It’s Pride month, and what better place to be than in New York, home to the world’s biggest Pride celebrations. Leading up to the official parade on Sunday June 24, the city is slowly transforming into a rainbow colored haven with good vibes all-around, and chefs step up their game to bring you wonderful creations. This is our guide to the best Pride-themed dishes and drinks, all supporting great LGBTQ causes.
Pride Sundae at The Sosta
To go with your pasta dishes, fast-casual spot The Sosta is offering a special Pride dessert for the entire month of June. Featuring three scoops of Fior di Latte gelato, the sundae is topped with a sprinkle cookie crunch, rainbow sprinkles, a rainbow cookie and fried spaghetti – don’t judge until you’ve tried it. It costs $8, and $3 will help support Ali Forney Center in their mission to protect LGBTQ youths.

Pride Cruller at Daily Provisions
Only available on the day of the march, Danny Meyer’s café Daily Provisions will be giving the already amazing crullers a rainbow sugar glaze. With hundred percent of the profits going towards NYC Pride (the non-profit organisation behind the city’s Pride festivities), you might as well eat these crullers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yes, they are that good.

Pride Cupcake at By Chloe
By Chloe’s branding is just as famous as its burgers, so it’s only fitting the vegan spot offers a whole range of Pride specials. Besides updating your wardrobe with colorful bags and cotton tie-dye tees, you can indulge in a rainbow colored cupcake for a good cause, benefitting The Happy Hippie Foundation.

Pride Croissant at Supermoon Bakehouse
Just when you think the croissants can’t get any better at this innovative bakery, Supermoon Bakehouse rolls out rainbow croissants, featuring a different color in each layer (how do they do it?!). While the flavor inside changes daily, every Pride croissant donates $1 towards The LGBT Center.

Pride Drinks at Añejo
If you’ve had enough of all those desserts, Mexican restaurant Añejo allows you to add sparkles and pea flower extract to your drink for $2. Besides giving your cocktail a purple color, the additional cost will go towards the Trevor Project that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.
