Last Saturday, the city of Los Angeles officially embraced "Meatless Mondays," an initiative designed to encourage residents to go vegetarian one day each week. It is the largest city in the country yet to vote the measure through.
But just because the city unanimously adopted the resolution doesn't mean Californians will be at a loss for dining options. In its 2013 LA and Southern California Restaurant Survey, Zagat listed the top 10 vegetarian restaurants in the city.
All of these eateries are not only highly-rated, but some even have a few menu items for the carnivores, too.
#10 Vegan Glory
Vegan Glory is a Thai restaurant that offers strictly vegan and organic options. It has over 100 dishes to choose from, including burgers and burritos, plus desserts like vegan carrot cake and deep fried banana spring rolls.
#9 Urth Caffé
Urth Caffé was America's first exclusively organic coffee company. They work with sustainable coffee growers and even have their own tea garden to produce the freshest blends.
#8 Follow Your Heart
For over 40 years, Follow Your Heart has been serving Californians delicious lacto-vegetarian fare (meaning they serve some dairy products). The restaurant is tucked away in the back of the health food market serving up homestyle, organic comfort food.
