Best of Boston

1999 BEST Vegetarian Restaurant

Centre St. Cafe

Visions of the Moosewood Cafe dance in our heads. This Jamaica Plain eatery isn’t quite the famous haven that spawned all those veggie cookbooks, but it offers meatless dishes flavorful enough to satisfy a carnivore. In fact, a musrhoom-potato stew was so rich, we were convinced it had a beef-broth base. (It didn’t.) We also loved the salads and the curried stir fry. You’ll find an occasional fish or chicken dish, but this is veggie heaven, 1960s-style.
