Read an Excerpt
Gibbs Smith, Publisher, is thrilled to present a series of vegetarian and vegan guides to major cities and regions throughout the United States and the world. Our primary goal is to have the guides be useful to consumers as they explore their own communities and travel near and far in search of the finest quality vegetarian and vegan fare.
We also hope to encourage and celebrate established vegetarian and vegan communities and to invite their exploration by many more people. Our objective is to further the pleasurable and health-giving effects of vegetarian and vegan dining.
We encourage you to use the guides and to be part of the creation of future guides in the series, as we revise and update each edition. As you discover new or established vegetarian or vegan restaurants that deserve the attention of others, please let us know. Either e-mail us at email@example.com or fill out and mail us the reply card found in the back of this book. If your recommended restaurant is chosen for an upcoming edition of VegOut, we'll send you a free copy of that new edition.

Pink-and-white shades color this intimate city restaurant loved equally by George Washington students and the suit-and-tie clan alike. A whole page of vibrant vegetarian options include the unique kadai dall (heavily seasoned lentils cooked in an iron wok), a mild but tangy vegetable jalfrazie stir fry, and crispy okra that feels like food for the soul. The delicate paneer shashlik (marinated cheese gently roasted in a clay oven) promises an hmmmm kind of meal-begin with a bowl of badami almond soup-a rare entry on most Indian menus and a truly masterful creation among several other delicious vegan soups. Lunch and dinner entrées from $9 to $12.
