Best of Boston

2015 Best Vegetarian Restaurant

Life Alive

A new Boston staffer—a meat-loving New York transplant—recently ran into the office, excited after “discovering” Life Alive. It was then that we realized how lucky we are to have had this organic café long before the whole grain-bowl-kombucha-juice-bar thing got trendy. Just try “The Adventurer,” a mash-up of corn, beets, cruciferous veggies, cheddar, and sesame-ginger sauce over quinoa and rice and see for yourself.
