Vegan Guide to dineL.A. Restaurant Week

Lifting up LA’s hard hit—but resilient—dining community, dineL.A. Restaurant Week is back March 1-14. We’re rounding up the top vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants participating in the event’s first ever spring season since its inception 13 years ago. The 14-day dining event will offer al fresco and takeout dining to foodies all over the city. Grubhub serves as the official delivery and takeout partner, though many restaurants are committed to offering a taste of the city through socially distanced dine-in meals as well.
