Chicago has long been known for its piled-high hot dogs and messy Italian beefs, but that doesn't mean that we don't eat our veggies. For decades, vegetarian- and vegan-friendly restaurants have thrived in this city. And over the last five years or so, a new wave of vegetable-forward restaurants have opened as a happy middle ground for everyone to enjoy. Whether you're on the hunt for a vegan milkshake, tofu wings or a salad filled with goodies from nearby farms, there's a restaurant on this list for you. And FYI: You don't have to be a vegetarian to go meat-free at these excellent eateries.
