In honor of Vegetarian Day and Vegetarian Awareness Month, OpenTable announced their choices for the 52 best restaurants for non-meat eaters in America. Sourced from over five million diner reviews, the expansive list covers a lot of ground, including restaurants that helped launch the eating movement and newer names that have brought plant-based gourmet cuisine into the spotlight.

"From omnivores seeking to indulge in the best of the season's natural bounty to diners who prefer a sustainable, meatless diet, eaters of every appetite can discover delicious plant-based dining experiences at any of these outstanding spots."
