The Ultimate Vegan Guide To Valentine’s Day In Los Angeles (2nd edition)

It’s that time of year again. It’s that time when every restaurant whips a fancy new menu filled with decadent treats and specials available for just one day. For those of us lucky enough to live somewhere as vegan friendly as Los Angeles, we don’t have to be left out of the fun. I was amazed at all the vegan friendly options last year. This year, the list is even bigger (with more menus added as they become available). Casual or upscale. Girl’s date, a get together with friends, or a romantic evening. A 100% vegan extravaganza or a night our with omni loved ones. This list has something for everyone. The only problem is trying to choose between all the amazing options.
