Here are just a few of the eateries that offer special diet fare:
Secret Sandwich Society
Any sandwich on the Society’s superstar menu can be easily made vegetarian with a substitute patty. Their signature soup, the spinach bisque, is meat-free, and their rotating “soup of the moment” is commonly a vegan-friendly option. They also offer gluten-free breads, so you don’t have to ditch the bun. Their lineup of lineup of veg-only salads is unique, and pairs well with their organic tea.
