A Month To Go Meatless

It's National Vegetarian Awareness Month. We're very much omnivores, ourselves, but have friends and family members who practice varying degrees of vegetarianism. I like to try to plan at least one dinner a week that's vegetarian; it's generally healthy and often cheaper than meat-based meals.

A few restaurants locally that are known for their vegetarian fare are BottleTree, Golden Temple, and Silver Coin Indian Grill. You can find some more vegetarian options at restaurants on our web site by going to the "Search Listings" page and typing in "vegetarian." (We've done it for you with this link.) We try to remember to note on a restaurant's description if it offers some interesting vegetarian options.

Even restaurants that don't list vegetarian dishes are often willing to work with you to create something tasty. We went to the now-defunct Metro Bistro with a vegetarian friend back when Alan Martin, now of Standard Bistro, was heading up the kitchen, and I was really jealous of the gorgeous vegetarian plate they created for her.

If you know of some more local restaurants that offer tasty vegetarian fare, please add a comment below!
