San Francisco is America?s most vegetarian-friendly city,
according to a new survey by People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals (PETA). The organization based its selections on the number
of ?vegetarian restaurants, health food supermarkets and stores,
and sales of vegetarian and vegan products.? Though the survey
features few surprises (New York, Seattle, and Minneapolis ranked
high), it profiles a city in nearly every region of the country.
The list includes brief descriptions of each town, as well as the
names and addresses of several choice vegetarian and vegan locales
in each featured city. The vegetarian-friendly poll also features
several related lists, including the cities that just missed making
the top 10 as well as the ?five spots where vegetarians are
mistaken for animal doctors? (translation: cities that rated near
the bottom of PETA?s review). Another poll highlights international
achievements with its list of Canada?s vegetarian-friendly top six.
PETA?s site also includes comprehensive guides to vegetarian/vegan
eateries, reviews of featured restaurants, and a section where
viewers can nominate their own favorite vegetarian spots.
