Best vegetarian restaurants in USA?


I'm looking for lists of the best vegetarian restaurants in the United States (or North America). I've done some internet searches, but they did not reveal much. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  1. Here are some best-of vegan restaurants from

    Vegetarian Times asked readers to identify favorite vegetarian restaurants and dishes, so there is a lot to choose from here:

    Hope these links help! Much easier to talk about best-of regionally rather than nationally, for sure.

    1. If the Cinnamon Snail Food Truck ever open an restaurant , I would vote them.

      I ordered their Thanksgiving Vegan Dinner, the Truffle Mac & Cheese was FABULOUS!!! You would even know it's vegan.

      All NYC'er vegan restaurant owners rave about Verde in Philadelphia, haven't been there. I think it's #1 in the vegnew magazine.

        I think the Phila restaurant you are referring to is Vedge - owners previously had Horizons, another veg restaurant that got national attention. Very interesting concept - focus on vegetables and very little or no "meat substitutes"

            Very sad that this placed closed. Absolutely incredible food.

          1. Hi. I just found this
            I have not tried many vegetarian restaurants in the US but I liked all the ones that I visited.
            I must say that Candle 79 in New York is worth the visit.
            I brought some non vegetarians with me and they said that they would return.
