I think it’s a trend appearing everywhere that goes hand in hand with very local produce. I went to an ‘urban farm’ in London the other day that supplied several top notch nearby restaurants with fresh vegetables. Amazing! I like the idea of not all out vegetarian cuisine, but making vegetables the main event, with meat almost like a small side dish.

I have been to several of the veggie places that went under, and I have to tell Andrea that it certainly wasn’t because of good value that they went under. Even my carnivore friends sang praises of the places I preferred. I think it is a very delicate balancing act… just enough meat to attract those who are 100% against eating a fully veggie meal, with vegan, lacto-ovo, and pesce-vegetarian options on the menu, too.

But I’ve never gone in, mostly because I can’t justify paying meat prices for just vegetables… Perhaps that’s why so many places have gone under? They just don’t look like a good value.
