Vegetarian recomendations

  • 6

I will be visiting San Francisco next week. Would like to hit a couple of restaurants that offer some veggie options. I've been to L'osteria, Delfinas, and Incanto. Would welcome any suggestions.

  1. Greens is amazing for an all vegetarian meal. And you can't beat the view.

      Great view at Greens, unless it's foggy, but in the past year or so there have been many harsh reports on the food.

    2. Luck us almost every restaurant offers vegetarian options. For pure Vegetarian restaurants I like these- Herbivor, Cha ya, Medicine, and cafe gratitude and Greens.

        I am not a big fan of herbivore - it seems to me like they're trying for too m uch breadth with not much depth. their menu is large but the items i've had were very unexciting.

        i'd secon Cha-ya, Gratitude, and Greens. I'd also recommend one of my personal favorites, Mekong - a little Thai place in the Tenderloin which has vegan options for 90% of the menu (read: lots of fake meat, if that's your bag). Their yellow pumpkin curry is to die for, and the owner and waiter are extremely hospitable.

      2. I really don't think Greens is worth going to. I had dinner there in May and cannot recommend it despite how much I love the Greens cookbook. I don't recommend Herbivore either. Their food always tastes like it was pre-made.

        Mekong is amazing. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy but the food and service is totally worth it. It's also very inexpensive.

        I know a lot of people don't like it by I love Cafe Gratitude if only for their grain bowls and terrific desserts. It's a place that feels unique to San Francisco.

        1. I like Medicine. And they are having a special fungi week coming that looks good.
