Vegetarian chow in Chicago?

I'm coming to Chicago over the summer-- what would you suggest for vegetarian chow (coming from Madison, WI, which has pretty good food, considering. Looking for interesting food and perhaps a splurge meal).

  1. Green Zebra sounds like just what you're looking for.

    1. Definitely Green Zebra for a splurge and a higher end meal it is not strictly vegetarian but has many vegetarian choices - strictly vegetarian choices include The Chicago Diner and Blindfaith Cafe in Evanston - - All are very good -

      1. For a cheap, unique and good meal. I am huge fan of Handlebar. Not many comments on this site about Handlebar from what I have seen thus far, but it really has some interesting options and a hipster atmosphere. I was not a fan of Green Zebra as I felt the food was more for show than to eat, but most of the other recs both in this thread and in past threads are good options.

        1. Don't overlook Lula's in Logan Square. It's small, funky, popular and has a lot of interesting vegetarian options. Nice dinners, but also great brunches. It has a bit of a Madison feel to it, actually. It's the kind of place you'd expect to find in a college town.

          1. One other place I have been wanting to try that I have heard good things about is Amiabul - - Vegan Korean food
