In many cities across the country, there are no vegetarian restaurants, or maybe just one. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have so many vegan and vegetarian restaurants that there's an annual survey to give bragging rights of who's the best.
We are pleased and excited to announce the results of the 2006 BEST OF VEG sponsored by Bay Area Vegetarians. Thank you to the members of Bay Area Vegetarians and the general community for their votes and participation in our 4th annual survey to recognize the best in vegan and vegetarian restaurant dining across the the San Francisco Bay Area.
