From dining destinations solely dedicated to vegan cuisine to menus highlighting plant-based offerings amid a sea of meat- and fish-based dishes, it seems like vegan diets have become part and parcel of Americans' gastronomical essence.
But are certain cities more attuned to the requests of vegans than others? According to a new study by sports nutrition brand Myprotein, yes.
Specifically, the research focuses on TripAdvisor data to figure out which one of the most populated cities in each state offers the most vegan takeout and delivery options. That focus has renewed importance amidst a global pandemic that has all but demanded we stay home as much as possible and really make use of to-go options.
Topping the list is—pretty unsurprisingly—New York City, home to 527 vegan restaurants that currently offer take-out, a number that amounts to 40% of the total eateries in the city with to-go options.
Atlanta, Seattle, Chicago and Portland round up the top five, with Boston coming in 6th. Need further proof? Check out our killer list of the best vegan restaurants in Boston.
