Being a vegetarian can be tough, when you go out for food you can only get a salad so many times. People assume that vegetarian options need to be bare bones and simple at many chain restaurants, and you end up feeling like you wasted a meal. Luckily, the Boston area has tons of locations that cater to vegetarians and spice up the options with great menus and atmosphere.
