In celebration of World Vegetarian Day, OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, released its list of the 50 Best Restaurants for Vegetarians in America for 2019.
According to data from OpenTable, plant-based diets and meat alternatives have become much more prevalent in 2019 than previous years with reviews featuring “plant based” increasing by 200 percent since 2017. Additionally, there were less than 100 reviews before 2016 that mention “vegan”, but that number has since increased by almost 15,000 per month.
With an increased interest in veggie-based cuisine, OpenTable is providing diners with a list of standout restaurants catered to sustainable and meatless dietary preferences. Featuring restaurants coast-to-coast across 20 states and Washington, D.C., the list is culled from more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 30,000 U.S. restaurants.
From locally grown, organic ingredients, to the cutting edge vegetable offerings, the list is perfect for vegans and vegetarians everywhere and even their omnivore friends at the table.
“There’s no doubt that plant-based dining is a trend as we’re seeing increasing interest in vegetarian menu options from our diners,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. “In honor of World Vegetarian Day, we thought it was a great moment to celebrate this change in dietary habits by spotlighting restaurants that serve up dining experiences guaranteed to satisfy any plant-based diet or omnivore appetite.”
