The Chicago Diner – Chicago, IL
In a city known as the meatpacking capital, you might not expect such great vegan options. The number one choice here is the Chicago Diner and staying true to form the top dish is its vegan Reuben. With thinly sliced seitan on marbled rye, a nice coat of vegan Thousand Island dressing, sauerkraut and onions, you won’t waste a bite.
The Chicago Diner is also known for its vegan country-fried steaks. Traditional vegans will feel safe with their black bean burger and sweet potato fries, but should live a little and see what vegan heights can be reached at the Chicago Diner. With the motto “Meat-Free Since ’83,” you know the Chicago Diner views veganism as more than a fad.
