Shape Names Top Vegan Fine-Dining Eateries in America

The popular health magazine has ranked the best upscale vegan restaurants across the country.

The results are in—Shape magazine has named the top 10 restaurants in America for vegan fine dining. Topping the list are New York’s Blossom, citing its popular Port Wine Seitan; Chicago’s Karyn’s on Green for its ample, perfectly seasoned meat substitutes; and Candle 79 (also in the Big Apple), which Shape calls “one of the ‘Grand Dames’ in the upscale vegan dining community.” Other top picks included Seattle’s Plum Bistro, Philadelphia’s Vedge, and G-Zen, the brick-and-mortar incarnation of the wildly popular Gmonkey Mobile food truck in Branford, CT. San Francisco’s Millennium and Los Angeles’ Real Food Daily represent the best in the West, and Boston’s True Bistro also receives a nod. “Even meat eaters are raving about these plant-based hotspots,” author Malerie Yolen-Cohen writes of the winners.
