Not eastside and a chain, but I love Veggie Grill. I hope one opens nearby.

@Diane - yes Elf is a special place, but it's not vegan as they do use some dairy in certain dishes. That said it's not to be missed. One of the best restaurants in all of LA in my opinion. A great place to take carnivores who are squeamish about vegetarian fare. @Mindy I think some people may have misunderstood the article. True, Mohawk Bend is not vegan. However, their vegetarian and vegan options far outweigh their non vegan options which is the opposite of what you can expect at most restaurants. Getting every person in the world to stop eating meat will simply never ever happen. Getting people to each much LESS meat is a more obtainable goal - one that would still have a great impact on our environment. Here's my point... yes Mohawk Bend should not be considered for the best vegan restaurant but they shouldn't be considered a "animal slaughterhouse outlet" either. That's childish and purposely misleading. Do you actually want to consider going vegan? Because comments like that only alienate. People read that, roll their eyes and say "typical vegan." I'm not a huge fan of Mohawk Bend but in a time when meat centric gastropubs abound, they took a risk by rolling out the menu that they did. Animal Slaughterhouse Outlet. Good grief.

@I am told there are some vegan options now at Taix.

The good news is that almost ALL high end slaughterhouse outlets are offering vegan and vegetarian options now. It is a huge trend (threat) in their market to which they have no choice but to respond. This is good news for animals and the American diet. The subject of this poll is favorite VEGAN restaurants, not favorite sides at the steakhouse.

I vote for Fatty's in EAGLE ROCK.. They are 70% vegan now and (along with Elf) the very best transitional restaurant for carnivores to enjoy rich, gourmet food with outstanding wine and beer and pizza. We go there for every birthday and anniversary.
