Summer 2011 DC Dining Guide Shows Veg Options Sprouting Up Everywhere

Written by Erica Meier

Dining guideAs the nation’s capital, Washington D.C. may have a reputation of being a city filled with political figureheads, federal monuments, and way too many tourists snapping family photos in front of the White House. But once you get past the politics and historical landmarks, all you need is Compassion Over Killing’s (COK’s) new Summer/Fall 2011 Vegetarian Dining Guide to Washington DC and Surrounding Areas to realize that the nation’s capital is a veritable vegetarian haven.

The D.C.-area is home to nearly three dozen all-vegetarian restaurants, bakeries and food trucks as well as hundreds more eateries offering veg-friendly menus. And as more people discover the joys of vegetarian eating, the list of restaurants featuring meatless meals keeps growing, as evidenced in this newly-updated Guide, which is now our fifteenth edition.

In this free 40-page booklet, you’ll find all of your favorite listings, including Java Green, Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats, The Vegetable Garden, and Great Sage along with dozens of new restaurants that are now dishing out delicious veg-friendly cuisine to tempt your taste buds. A few highlights include Telegraph Station in Alexandria, Va.; Sweet & Natural in Mt. Rainier, Md.; and Dangerously Delicious Pies in D.C.

With so many meatless menus available in D.C., it’s never been easier—or more delicious—for Washingtonians to stand up and protect our health, the planet, and animals every time we sit down to eat. Start today by visiting VegDC.com.
