Silverlake vegan??

Need to take a vegan to very good dinner in the Silverlake area. The more elegant the better. Thanks for the help.

    1. I recommend Cru. Elf is another possibility, but it's not entirely vegan.

        Second Elf.

        There's Sage Organic Vegan in Echo Park, but I have not tried it yet and do not know what the space is like.

        1. re: chinchi

          The atmosphere is nice (maybe not "elegant", but nice enough). I only went once for a full meal, and it was probably a month or two after they opened, but I was *not* impressed by the food.

          There is a "kind kreme' inside it, and that is Ok.

      2. Not much along the lines of what you're describing in Silver Lake or close by areas. If you can travel a bit further out, you could go to Providence (budget permitting), or Ammo (both Hollywood-ish), or Bashan or Palate in Glendale. None of these are vegan, but all can accommodate a vegan diner, assuming your guest is Ok with the food not being prepared in an all-vegetarian kitchen.

        1. Not elegant, but they have a full vegan menu: Gingergrass

              if you do decide to go to Mowhawk Bend make reservations and ask to be seated in the back room.

                I like Mohawk Bend, but 'elegant' (even in the back room) doesn't seem like the best description for the place -- not even close. And because it opened so recently, it's still a bit of a zoo in there.

                1. re: will47

                  I totally agree not elegant, just saying if they decide on Mohawk get seated in the back.
