Chicago ranked third most vegan and vegetarian friendly city by Meetup

Meetup, an online service that helps people find groups of like-minded individuals, revealed in their end-of-the-year round-up that ChicagoVeg is the third largest Meetup group in the world for vegetarians and vegans. According to The Chicago Sun-Times, this makes Chicago the third friendliest city for plant-based eaters.

Chicago beat out Los Angeles for this ranking, but fell below New York City and London. Chicago offers a wide array of plant-based options in multiple styles of cuisine including Indian, Jamaican, soul food, and more. 

This new ranking further builds Chicago's reputation as one of the best food cities.
