“Carnivorous” Website Recommends “The 21 Best Veggie Restaurants in America!” BRAVO!

images-1

Who doesn’t love a good list? They’re fun, concise, informative, even motivating. Vegan American Princess loves lists as much as the next, um well…princess, and so I was extremely excited to spot and subsequently devour a new list of “The 21 Best Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurants in America.This selection of wonderful eateries is particularly interesting because it was published by Thrillist.com, which is normally a site that loves to talk about steak, bacon and bacon-wrapped steak.

A list of the best veggie restaurants in the country as determined by a very, seemingly, carnivorous website attracted me to take a nibble and then a whole bite! I do follow Thrillist.com for its wealth of information about all kinds of food, drink and travel stuff. But this time, Rachel Freeman, Thrillist food/drink blogger, hit one out of the park with a great list that we can all personally use and keep tucked away in our carry-ons when we’re headed to, say San Francisco, and want a fabulous restaurant where veggies are the star, main event and a cause for celebration.

Poor me, as I’ve eaten at only 4 restaurants on the list, so I’ve got my work cut out for me!  If you travel to or live in any of these great places, you must check these vegetarian/vegan restaurants out, as will I! Please write us and let us know which are your personal faves and which dish you love to order there. We’ve got some glowing things to say about some of these too, so check the end of the post for links!

  1. I love Blossom in Chelsea, New York, and all the other Blossom eateries around NYC. I wish they were named. Candle 79 is also amazing, in addition to its more casual Candle Cafe.http://veganamericanprincess.com/blossom-restaurant-chelsea-nyc/
