Best Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant Orange County 2009 - The Veggie Grill
Readers' Choice: Rutabegorz
The true success of a vegetarian restaurant is if you can forget you are eating at a vegetarian restaurant. Self-deception is a driving factor, if not the regrettable fact that you're usually doing it in the service of your doctor, the environment or that cute hippie you are trying to impress. Flavor and satisfaction become secondary when you know you are depriving yourself of what you really want to eat: meat. In this regard, the Veggie Grill does the impossible: It will make you realize that you do, in fact, love vegetables. Dishes are accessible and unfussy. Sandwiches ooze dressing, salads are full of crunch, and all are prepared with more attention paid to flavor than philosophy.
