Atlantic City’s wide array of eateries includes something for everyone, even if that something is vegetarian or vegan. While many of the city’s higher-end restaurants have vegetarian options on their menus, there are also a number of vegetarian-specific places to eat. Check out the best of them below.
Chop & Toss
Cafe, Market, American, $$$
© Chop & Toss Salad Company
Chop & Toss, in the Marketplace at Borgata, lets you create your own combination of the best greens, vegetables, fruits, grains and organic toppings, plus their original recipe, homemade salad dressings. Or order from the menu of signature salads, wraps, and soups.
Greens and Grains
Cafe, Smoothie Bar, American, $$$
Greens and Grains features a creative menu full of acai/pitaya bowls, salads piled with delicious, fresh ingredients, organic juices, wraps, and sandwiches. Eating clean doesn’t mean you can’t have fun; you can even order creative craft cocktails.
Little Saigon Restaurant
Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Open for lunch and dinner, Little Saigon is a cash-only, BYOB gem in the heart of Atlantic City, serving up traditional Vietnamese food with a focus on vegetarian dishes. Give the vegetarian pho a try, and enjoy the fresh herbs and homemade, slow-simmered broth, or ask your server for a recommendation. Everyone at this family-run eatery really knows what they’re doing.
Cafe, Smoothie Bar, Mediterranean, $$$
This plant-based eatery focuses on Mediterranean food, which means pitas filled with every delicious combination you could possibly imagine. The vegan gyro features seitan and homemade vegan tzatziki, and the skordalia dip—whipped almonds accented with garlic—is like nothing you’ve ever tasted before, in the most delicious possible sense. For dessert, try a smoothie bowl piled high with fresh fruit and blended with nut butters.
