Vegan in Columbus Ohio

I visit Columbus occasionally as its where my mom lives. Last time I was there I emailed the editor of Columbus Alive, Justin Mcintosh, about where he likes to eat as a vegan in Columbus. This is the email he responded to me with:

Subject: Re: Columbus vegan recommendations

Hey Roger,

I can definitely give you some recommendations.

Hal & Al's is an all vegan pub with pizza, tacos, BBQ burgers, fried sauerk=
raut balls, etc and some great beer. Prob my most frequented restaurant.

Whole World(Yelp link as their site was down) is all vegetarian and has good soups and sandwiches.

Banana Leaf is a vegetarian Indian restaurant with plenty of vegan choices.

Dirty Franks has vegan brats and dogs in about 20 different ways.

North Star has perhaps the best veggie burger in the country. It's pretty i=
nfamous.

Til is a nicer, classier restaurant that used to be all vegan. It's now omn=
i but with plenty of vegan options.

Pattycake has the best vegan cupcakes, muffins, and cookies.

Betty's, Surly Girl and Tip Top are three fun restaurants/bars owned by the=
 same people. Betty's has great vegan quesadillas and Tip Top has a great v=
egan Philly cheesesteak and eggplant fries.

Loving Hut, about 15-20 min outside Cbus, is all vegan. A lot of raw option=
s. Owned by that cult of vegans out west that's a quasi religion.

Hal and Al's (Sat and Sun) and Whole World (Sun) both have vegan brunches w=
hile Sunny St Cafe has one on Saturdays.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Vegan Fare: Angels Trumpet Ale House Phoenix AZ

Notice: The rule for posting about restaurants on VegStandard is that there has to be an item on the menu that can be ordered with no alterations and it will arrive vegan.

Living in Phoenix can be a bit of a hassle when it comes to eating out as a vegan. Unlike Los Angeles, NYC, or San Francisco where it seems like a vegan restaurant is sprouting up around every corner(which is close but far from the truth). The good news is that besides the few pure vegan restaurants like Green and Loving Hut more and more places are accommodating the vegan diet.

Even better is that places that serve excellent beer are also serving vegan fare. Case in point is the newly opened Angels Trumpet Ale House. This casa de cervesas is located in downtown Phoenix on 2nd Street between McKinley and Garfield Streets. It’s a great location. A well lit and open space helps dissipate the background noise and keeps things lighthearted.

Our first trip there was unfortunately timed to occur shortly after our bikes were stolen from the movie theater. Upon arriving we totally blabbed our sob story to our server as though she were our psychiatrist. She was a good sport and got us our beers promptly. To our surprise the owners Matt and Sherri soon stopped by our table to express their condolences and give us a round of beers on the house. This was totally unnecessary but extremely cool and appreciated.

We saw that their Garden Pizza was vegan and ordered one. It was fantastic and delicious and hit the spot perfectly. The crust was nice and light and the sauce was a roasted red pepper/tomato concoction. For toppings they use fingerling potatoes, green beans, yellow squash, and zucchini. Being the greedy bastard I am I would love to see more veggies and will be sure to ask the next time I go.

If you live in Phoenix or are visiting be sure to stop by Angels Trumpet Ale House and get the Garden pizza. Oh yeah they serve beers. You could try some of those too.
