1 Crossroads

Congratulations to Tal Ronnen, who has turned the concept of earthy crunchy eating on its ear. The man who famously catered Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's wedding serves up gourmet delicacies in his swanky new West Hollywood space that are so delectable you'll be hard-pressed to remember that you aren't eating meat. Try the pistachio kalamata tapenade and spicy roasted cauliflower flatbread and artichoke 'oysters' at this new celebrity hot spot and make sure to order one (or many) of the establishment's designer cocktails.
8284 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, California 90046 {323} 782-9245

2 M Cafe de Chaya

For amazing contemporary macrobiotic cuisine in a haute European setting, head to M Cafe de Chaya in Beverly Hills. Fresh, healthy ingredients like tofu and tempeh have never tasted so good when paired with dressings of tahini-soy yogurt dressing and spicy yuzu mayo.
9433 Brighton Way, Beverly Hills CA 90210 (310) 858-8459 and 7119 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036

3 M.A.K.E.

Head to M.A.K.E. for a real experience in raw-vegan-style dining. Chef Matthew Kenney has something for everyone at his open-air Santa Monica Place eatery: a communal omakase-style bar where guests will watch our chefs prepare a tasting menu, an elegant dining room and an outdoor patio. Dig in to delicacies like carrot gnocchi and zucchini lasagna and feel good about it -- you've avoided major carbs!
395 Santa Monica Place, Suite 333 3rd Floor in “The Market” Santa Monica, California 90401 (310) 394-7046

4 Mohawk Bend

All veggies and vegans who are sick of ordering from the same small selection will rejoice at Mohawk Bend. Meat-eaters are in the minority at this Echo Park establishment, whose menu is 20-percent red meat and poultry, 20-percent lacto/ovo vegetarian and 60-percent vegan. Regardless, everyone who dines there will be delighting in 100% California-grown ingredients. But it isn’t just the food that will have patrons giving Mohawk high praise, as it’s décor is just as unique as its menu. The Ramona Room, a fine-dining area, an atrium and a pub are all on the premises at this retrofitted Vaudeville theatre.
2141 West Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026 (213) 483-2337

5 Seed Kitchen

Seed owner and chef Eric Lechasseur has created one of the City of Angels' vegetarian staples in Venice's Seed Kitchen. His macrobiotic vegan fare is presented beautifully and tastes as good as it looks. Standouts include seitan burgers and tempeh chorizo 'tacos'.
1604 Pacific Ave, Venice, CA 9029 (310) 396-1604
