Although Chicago is a big city, it has always had a down-home vibe, which includes its preference for stick-to-your-ribs food like steaks and deep dish pizzas. However, Chicago has evolved to be a world-class, global city, with cosmopolitan cuisine to match.
As a result, vegetarians and vegans can find tasty fare, not only downtown, but in far-flung areas of the city and even beyond the city’s borders. Here are eight vegetarian restaurants in Chicago.
1. Anaba Handroll Bar
Ranking at number two on Zagat’s 2013 list, Anaba Handroll Bar is located at 1742 West Division Street in the popular Wicker Park neighborhood. With friendly service and reasonable prices, Anaba Handroll Bar offers delicious dishes that will make you forget that there is no meat included. Be prepared to wait: the small location takes no reservations, and fills up fast, especially on weekends.
