The small market inside Botanica bodes of great things to come when you eat here: local produce, biodynamic wines, freshly-baked bread and Middle Eastern spices. Whether eating in the luminous dining room or the plant-adorned patio, you’ll find the menu abundant with vegetarian options, while still offering choice cuts for omnivores. The cassoulet vert is a brightly herbaceous affair with heirloom beans in a garlicky pistou with fresh greens.
All that bacon worship getting you down? In a city where you can find a farmers’ market any day of the week and a collective love of kale that borders on obsession, discovering a plate of perfectly prepared vegetarian (or even vegan) cuisine is easy. We’ve combed through the city’s eateries to find L.A.’s best vegetarian restaurants—ones that even your hamburger-loving friend will enjoy.
