Hi everyone - I just got back from a 4 day visit to Boston. My boyfriend and I researched a lot of vegetarian / veggie-friendly places before going and had a lot of great meals! Here are my thoughts on them:
Milk Street Cafe - not vegetarian, but they did have some veggie friendly options. i had the "Middle Eastern Plate" which was delicious! and my boyfriend had eggplant pannini.
Buddha's Delight - i went there based on the recommendations of people from this board, and i have to say that i loved it. however, i think they had way too many things on the item and my boyfriend and i ended up ordering 2 very different sounding things that looked exactly the same when we got them! but it was still tasty. tofu sushi!!!
TJ's Pizza - we couldn't decide whether we should go here or Grasshopper. I really wanted to go to grasshopper since so many of you guys had said how great it was, but we had just had asian food the night before and how often do you get the chance to eat vegan pizza in a restaurant??? it was awesome - i wish they had a place like this in Pittsburgh (where I live). most vegan cheeses i have eaten have tasted pretty bad when cooked, but this cheese was very good!
Boston Beer Works - ok, so not really that veggie friendly, but we had spinach and artichoke dip. we went here because we like microbreweries - the beer was excellent!
Veggie Planet - i heard a lot of negative things about this place on this site, but i thought it was GREAT. i had the best meal of my trip here - we were there on a sunday afternoon when they were serving brunch and i had homefry tofu scramble. it was seriously awesome... very colorful and filling. i wish i could have this again! my boyfriend had vegan waffles which were also good, but nowhere near as awesome as my dish!
Christopher's - ok, also not all that veggie friendly. our guidebook said that it had a lot of vegetarian and grain-based dishes, but that wasn't really true. my boyfriend got fajitas and i had a veggie burger. the veggie burger came with pesto on it, which i am not a fan of, so i was a little disappointed. but, they had a pretty good beer selection, including Magic Hat from Vermont which we had on a trip a few years ago and haven't been able to find since.
So those were my Boston veggie experiences. all in all, it seems like a really good city to be a vegetarian in!
