Veg Out Vegetarian Guides


I wrote about the Washington, D.C. version a couple weeks ago.

It arrived last week, and I paged through it and checked out the places I've been to to see how they were rated.

I think the book's quite accurate, spot-on.

Of interest: there are also guides for


San Francisco,


Seattle & Portland,


Southern California, and New York.

Coming in the spring of 2005 are Chicago and Denver & Salt Lake City.

Each guide has a $12.95 list price; most are available at amazon for $10.36.

I find it striking that the same cities that are considered gay-friendly are also the first to get vegetarian guidebooks.

The two Venn diagrams overlap quite a bit, I would bet.

These are also the cities most people would say are the most happening in the U.S.

That's another certain overlap.

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we rely on Bay Area Vegetarian's Ulimate Guide for the latest and greatest restaurant info:

We love seeing these great guides being produced for travelers and for handy references for when we're traveling in a part of town we're not familiar. I know how quickly things change in the restaurant business so I wish the publisher luck in keeping on top of things. Right now we're experiencing a gold rush in raw and vegan and veg friendly restaurants and there's so many of them now it requires guides!
