This is L.A., where the word “vegan” hasn’t raised eyebrows and prompted jokes about nut loaf for years, which means that there’s a smörgasbord of vegetarian and vegan restaurants in L.A. slinging slices of pizza piled high with veggies; upscale Mexican food; and even takes on the traditionally egg-laden Italian classic, carbonara. Here are the very best of the best, all 100-percent vegan.
Before you dig in, a brief note: All of these restaurants are currently open in some form, unless otherwise noted. These days are strange days for restaurants and some might only be offering limited menus and hours; call or look online to check menus and availability before stopping by.
