DC Dining Scene Embraces Vegetarian Menu Items

Many omnivore-oriented restaurants in the nation’s capital are offering an increasing number of vegan and vegetarian dishes.

Washington, DC has its share of restaurants that specialize in vegan food, but Eater.com reports that the city’s omni dining scene has begun to incorporate more plant-based dishes into its edible repertoire to satisfy vegan clientele and keep health-conscious consumers coming back. Many chefs are also embracing the trend of preparing plates where vegetables take center stage as a fun and interesting challenge. Some DC restaurants that include veg dishes on their menus include Urbana, Pizzeria Orso, and the Latin-Asian fusion restaurant Zengo. “Vegetables are the true seasonal ingredients, not always meat,” says Chef Will Artley of Pizzeria Orso to Eater.com. “You can get most meat year-round, but some people forget that some chefs’ greatest loves and favorite items are actually vegan [or] vegetarian.”
