Best of Boston

2011 Best Vegetarian Restaurant

True Bistro

Despite the proliferation of earthy-crunchy types in town, only a handful of restaurants here dedicate their menu to meatless meals, and even fewer elevate the concept past casual fare. At True Bistro, though, the offerings actually fall into the category of fine dining. Everything, right down to the wine, is completely vegan, from the English-pea ravioli in lemon-thyme cream to the decadent crepes at brunch, all of which will satisfy even your most staunchly carnivorous friends.
