“If you want to get me started on a sandwich rant, the shit they do with tofu on the Banh Mi at Nhu Lan Bakery is positively psycho. Plus they have amazing smoothies.” —Trevor Shelley-de Brauw, local musician in Pelican, Chord, and Let's Pet

“The Chickpea Tagine at Lula Cafe. We have also had amazing meals at Boka, Girl and the Goat, and Schwa. I feel that more and more restaurants are catering to vegetarian/vegan diets.” —Paul McGee, co-owner/head bartender of the Whistler in Logan Square
Andrea Bauer
“The veggie tacos from Irazu: corn tortillas, black beans, vegetable rice, lettuce, tomato, and avocado. A basket or two of chips and salsa, mandatory side of yuca fries, and an oatmeal shake.” —Dan Staackmann, founder of Upton's Naturals
“The Purple Pig has a surprising amount of delicious vegetarian dishes. Whipped feta smear for sure. Their brussels. A farro dish. Beets with goat cheese and pistachios.” —John Honkala, ChicagoGluttons.com
Wishbone's stuffed zucchini or eggplant. Their black-bean cakes [above] are pretty awesome too.” —Karen Yates, associate artistic director, Chicago Opera Vanguard
