The Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Chicago

The OpenTable Team

Chicago is one of the coolest, most affordable, accessible and beautiful cities in America. Located in the heart of the Midwest, it got its start as the grain capital of the country and quickly grew into a mid-point transportation hub for cross-country shipping, and later blossomed into the cosmopolitan center that it is today. This Midwestern destination has it all, from world-class museums and theaters to a stunning waterfront and, of course, out-of-this-world dining options. The food scene here has really kicked it up a notch in recent years and many of the city's best restaurants have an interest in serving the growing community of vegetarians with more meatless dishes. We've put together a list of where to find the best vegetarian restaurants in Chicago, so you know exactly where to head next time you need some veggies in your life. Grab a table at one of these foodie havens next time you're in town.
