Vegan Food in the D.C. Area
I'm looking for a restaurant that has a good selection of vegan food in either Alexandria, VA or Washington D.C. Actually it would be great if it was a combo vegan/non-vegan food. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Vegdc.com is the best resource for restaurant listings in the area.
Personally, I'd recommend Vegetate (www.vegetatedc.com) and Nirvana (http://www.dcnirvana.com/) for all-veg food in DC and Viridian (http://www.viridianrestaurant.com/) for a mix of veggie and omnivore, although it's not as vegan-friendly as it used to be, it's very accomodating.
Alexandria is probably a wasteland for vegans...beyond standard Asian places.
There's Aladdins in Shirlington (Sorry, I keep bringing it up Aladdins but it's where I go w/ my friend who's vegan and I'm not a big meat eater so I can always find something there). If you're looking for a dessert place, I've heard great things about Sticky Fingers:
I just looked at the Java Green website menu. It's somewhat misleading: there is no meat in the "drumstick", "sausage", or "chicken".
Probably the most reknowned vegan restauarant in the area is the Vegetable Garden on Rockville Pike in Rockville, MD. It's easy walking distance (100 yards) from the White Flint Metro.
