Vegetarian/Vegan - Detroit Metro

Jack Freeman Aug 31, 2011 08:49 PM

We have a family member visiting this weekend that is a vegan. I know of a few places that seem to be vegetarian friendly but not so much vegan.

I am certainly willing to do some cooking but don't want to spend my entire weekend in the kitchen. Any suggestions would be appreciate. I know this topic has been discussed before but thought I might renew the conversation in case there were any additions to consider.

We live in Northern Royal Oak and are willing to drive quite a ways for good food. We have two nights planned so far... Inn Season (Boagman is cringing) and Seva in Ann Arbor. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Seva Restaurant
314 E Liberty St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104

Inn Season Cafe
500 E 4th St, Royal Oak, MI 48067

    Yes, Jack...ISC still makes me cringe and wince. Glad you like it, though!

    As for your request: Neehee's in Canton is still just plain *awesome*. Worth the drive.

      Just checked: Neehee's offers more than 40 different vegan items...and far more that are vegetarian.

      I'll second Boagman's recommendation re: NeeHee's Indian street food.
      Big flavors, but fast-food ambiance.

        I just took a peek at Sweet Lorraine's menu and it looks like several items are vegan or could be with minimal fuss; leave the parmesan off the broccoli for example--but why :)

          Yesterday's post on Eat It Detroit gave a very helpful list of vegetarian and vegan dining options in Detroit. Just wanted to pass it along...

              You're welcome. I posted the link on your thread from last summer too, but the mods must have removed it for some reason. Glad you found it anyway! :)
