Best Restaurants for Vegetarians in America

In celebration of World Vegetarian Day and Vegetarian Awareness Month, OpenTable unveiled the 52 Best Restaurants for Vegetarians in America. Vegan restaurants represent 21 spots on the list, as do vegetarian-friendly eateries; vegetarian restaurants account for the remaining ten. A significant percentage of honorees easily accommodate diners with gluten allergies or sensitivities.

More than half of the award winners were founded in the last five years, with seven winners opening their doors in 2015 alone, such as Plant Food and Wine in Venice, California, and Encantada Restaurant in Baltimore. Landmark vegetarian restaurants also dot the list, with some having been in business since the seventies, including Blind Faith Cafe in Evanston, Illinois, and Irregardless Cafe in Raleigh, North Carolina. Standout restaurants skew heavily toward providing an upscale casual dining experience as opposed to fine dining, though several winners cater to this affinity.

These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 20,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
