Celebrate VegWeek With Great Drinks, April 23-29

Celebrate VegWeek With Great Drinks, April 23-29

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to go veggies-only, April 23–29 is the time to try.  This week is National VegWeek 2012, a program that was started in 2009 in Tacoma, MD in order to celebrate and highlight the benefits of being vegetarian. While Baltimore is not specially known for having a plethora of vegetarian and vegan restaurants, it is home to many restaurants with exceptional veggie options. Some of these establishments are even offering VegWeek specials. Here are a few of our favorite Baltimore veg-friendly restaurants that serve great drinks as well.

City Cafe: With eclectic vegetarian options ranging from eggplant Francaise to “something vegan” this is a great spot to test out your interest in vegetarian cuisine. It also has one of the most extensive designer cocktail menus in the city, including the popular Boyhatten. Sit in the bar or dining area and enjoy Mt. Vernon through the beautiful floor to ceiling glass windows (1001 Cathedral St.; 410-539-4252).

Johnny Rads: This pizzeria offers a variety of clearly-labeled vegetarian options, including the intriguingly named Trainwreck pizza featuring mushroom, spinach, and olives. Patrons can substitute Teese vegan cheese on any pie or other menu items.  There is also a long drink list to choose from ranging from Baltimore staples Heavy Seas Loose Cannon and Black Cannon on draft to Rad’s own red or white sangria (2108 Eastern Ave.; 443-759-6464).

One World Cafe: This vegetarian hot spot offers an extensive menu of vegetarian and vegan food that uses organic ingredients and chemical free foods as much as possible. Chef/owner Sue Novak is famous for her soups and nightly specials, but the homemade vegan desserts — such as the strawberry luv nugutz — are not to be missed.  The full service bar offers beer and local brews, but while you are celebrating VegWeek, we recommend a glass of organic wine with your meal (100 W. University Pkwy.; 410-235-5777).
