1710 W Magnolia Blvd
Burbank, CA 91506
(818) 253-1710
Visit Website

Tony’s Darts Away is not only incredibly vegetarian, vegan, and meat-eater friendly, but the beers are spectacular. They make it easy, as many dishes can be switched up with with actual meat, or a plant-based substitute. The bulls-eye burger loads up two Impossible Burger patties, vegan bacon, vegan provolone, barbecue sauce, and frizzled onions on a hamburger bun. The Mexicali includes a spicy pork sausage with salsa roja, avocado, chipotle aioli, and pico de gallo.

2. Lal Mirch

11138 Ventura Blvd
Studio City, CA 91604
(818) 980-2273
Visit Website

Indian is an easy selection when it comes to satisfying everyone. Lal Mirch’s flavorful South Indian menu is easy for sharing. Lal Mirch’s korma, biryani, sag paneer, and masala can include meat, or none at all. The gluten-free can snack on the onion bhaji which is made with chick pea flour.

3. Atrium

Copy Link
1816 N Vermont Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90027
(323) 607-6944

Enter through Atrium’s outdoor alley and into the high-ceiling, gorgeous room to try everything on chef/partner Hunter Pritchett’s menu, no matter the preference. The pumpkin seed hummus or sikl pak is a start that all can share, but pescatarians will love the crispy whole fish in a tamarind-tomato jaew.

4. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele

L’Antica Pizzeria’s Neapolitan-styled restaurant landed in central Hollywood in May. The place to be is the patio, ensconced in exposed brick, plants, and a perfect view of the wood-fired pizza oven. And while its traditional pies feature meat-filled options like sausage and fennel, vegans can enjoy the marinara with tomato sauce, toasted garlic, oregano, extra-virgin olive oil.

5. Night + Market Song

3322 Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026

Visit Website

One close look at Night + Market Song’s menu, and it reveals a kitchen secret. The kitchen can adjust many dishes to accommodate vegans, and those who prefer gluten-free. Some are easy adjustments, like removing egg or meat from the pad thai. But they can also remove the oysters from the khao soi, and it’s just as flavorful as the original.

6. Sqirl

Copy Link
720 N Virgil Ave #4
Los Angeles, CA 90029
(323) 284-8147
Visit Website

The best way to exemplify Sqirl’s varied menu is to desconstruct the sorrel pesto rice bowl. With specialty brown rice, a nut-free sorrel pesto, preserved meyer lemon, fermented hot sauce, watermelon radish, feta, and a poached egg, it’s simple to convert it into vegan. The same formula applies to the satisfying crispy rice salad. If more meat is desired, the kitchen will happily add it upon request.

7. Las Glorias Del Buen Comer

Copy Link
620 Silver Lake Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
(213) 484-9090

One of Silver Lake’s best hidden and reasonably priced gems, Las Glorias del Buen Comer is completely casual and cozy. Platters with grilled salmon, cochinita pibil, and mole are their staples. But there’s also a completely vegan menu with sopes, burritos, tacos, or enchiladas filled with soy chicken or soy beef.

8. Mohawk Bend

Copy Link
2141 Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
(213) 483-2337
Visit Website

The long-established Mohawk Bend created a menu for all types when it opened in 2011. It’s kind of their thing with buffalo-style cauliflower, and chili cheese fries that can be made vegan or with actual meat. No matter the preference, Mohawk’s menu provides more just one or two dish selections for all, which is a refreshing change for vegans and vegetarians.

9. Burgerlords

Copy Link
943 N Broadway #102
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(323) 405-4012
Visit Website

Despite looking, and in some ways feeling, like a retro homage to the meaty stacked burgers at In-N-Out, Burgerlords actually hews to a mostly vegan diet. There are meat patties and real cheese available, to be sure, but vegan shakes and tofu nuggets (not to mention non-branded veggie patty burgers) make the casual burger joint, with locations in Highland Park and Chinatown, an easy option for all.

10. Bavel

Los Angeles, CA 90013

Visit Website

There is no formal vegan menu at Arts District hotspot Bavel, though there used to be. Regardless, fans of the modern Middle Eastern restaurant can find lots to like across a variety of different dining habits, particularly with already vegetable-focused dishes like the oyster mushroom kebab, which was already one of the restaurant’s signature dishes.

Visit Website

Vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters can find plenty to choose from at Wes Avila’s Downtown restaurant. For vegans, Avila makes smoked cauliflower tacos or produces meat-free specials after regular trips to the farmers market. Vegetarians will swoon over the sweet potato taco or potato taquito. And for omnivores, Avila’s grilled steak taco, hamachi tostada, or Baja fried cod tacos will do the trick nicely.

Middle Eastern tends to skew vegetarian-friendly, but Mizlala’s menu caters to all with dishes like green falafel and curried cauliflower, as well as garlic shrimp, sea bass ceviche, and Moroccan fried chicken.

13. Venice Ale House

Visit Website

Venice Ale House can be an ideal spot to dine, thanks to the location on the Venice Boardwalk. The menu is decidedly all-things to all people, including the taco plate filled with wild shrimp, carne asada, or jackfruit. Burger options are plentiful for meat eaters. Plus, a B.L.T. can be adjusted to a B.A.T.A with tempeh, arugula, tomato, and avocado.
