Best Vegetarian restaurant: Organic vegan virtue
Vegan. Macrobiotic. Organic. Now that chastity, temperance, and meekness have gone out of favor, can you think of three words in the English language that better symbolize purity? Reborn from the bust-up of the Macrobiotic Cafe, with the same cooks and the same reliance on miso, hijiki, and tahini, the restaurant puts out a daily menu of seasonal food simply seasoned. You can order items á la carte, or splurge on a full meal of soup, salad, and entrée. Every plate is a nutritionist's wet dream, loaded with so many servings of greens, root vegetables, and whole grains that one meal satisfies most of your USDA requirements, leaving you free to spend your culinary capital on Krispy Kremes for dinner.
