Washington Post Readers Name Best Veg Dishes

A Washington Post reader survey turns out an extensive and flavorful list of vegetarian noshes.


Last January, the Washington Post’s Going Out Guide set out on an expedition to name Washington DC’s essential dishes, using its reader submissions as a compass. Building on the positive feedback of the list, the Post announced it was taking a meat-free turn and asked readers to submit their favorite veggie eats in DC. What turned up was not the usual mass of salads and veggie burgers, but instead a colorful variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes including whiskey-infused seitan wings from Smoke and Barrel, Cupcake Wars first-place carrot cupcakes from Sweet Lobby, Pete’s Apizza’s crispy eggplant pizza, and Elizabeth’s Gone Raw’s spicy kale chips.
