Never ask an LA person for restaurant recommendations unless you have at least 20 minutes to spare. They’re likely to go on and on about their secret spots or the BEST (fill in the blank) IN THE CITY. I know this because I do the exact same thing.
My good friend Andrea came to visit our lovely city this past week for an animal rights convention. We had plans to meet up for dinner but I realized, being a meat-eating Texas girl living in Los Angeles, I didn’t know too many vegan options to suggest. Luckily, her fellow convention goers had a suggestion.
Who’s Cookin’: Sage Vegan Bistro

If you know a vegan/are a vegan/are dating a vegan/need more vegetables in your life, Sage Vegan Bistro is a great choice.
