Vegan Dishes at Il Fornaio?

December 11, 2010

Tonight I went out to dinner with a bunch of girlfriends at the Italian restaurant, Il Fornaio. I won’t lie, I was wondering what I would end up eating, as it was my first time dining out since converting to a vegan diet. I figured I would probably end up getting something really simple and basic like spaghetti with marinara sauce – which would have been perfectly fine. But to be honest, I was hoping for something a bit more exciting, considering we were out for our Girls Christmas Dinner.

Well to my pleasant surprise, there were several vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, and they were clearly designated. I was impressed! I’m not sure why, after all, vegetarians are not that uncommon, and veganism seems to be gaining in popularity as well. I guess I was surprised because it is a restaurant that I used to frequent fairly often, and they did not have vegan dishes back then. Granted, it has been a few years since I’ve eaten at Il Fornaio, but still. I was surprised – especially considering it was their Christmas menu, to boot! So if you are looking for a restaurant where you can enjoy a nice vegan meal this holiday season, Il Fornaio is definitely worth checking out.
