Local vegetarians say Salt Lake City has some great options when it comes to vegetarian cuisine.
"Many of the local restaurants you go to they cater to vegan diets and lifestyles,” said resident and vegetarian Corbin Baldwin.
Ian Brandt, owner of the vegan restaurant Vertical Diner, realized the demand for vegetarian and vegan food.
“All across the country, especially also in Salt Lake City a very large increase in businesses that are accommodating to vegetarians,” Brandt said.
VegNews magazine was also considering Austin, Texas for "the next great vegan city,” but Salt Lake City won out in the magazine's very first "Vegan City Showdown."
