  • Araya's Vegetarian Place
    The aromas of peanut sauce, lemongrass, and spicy chili pastes drifting throughout the dining room at Araya's Place may seem familiar at first, but the eatery isn't like most Thai restaurants. It eschews meats and dairy entirely, forging a distinctive menu that led The Stranger to hail Araya's University District location as "Thai vegan heaven." Working exclusively with GMO-free tofu and produce sourced from local farmers whenever possible, the chefs cook classic Thai dishes as well as a handful of slightly more imaginative creations. "I do not want to be only Thai vegetarian food," owner Araya Pudpard explained to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 2008, "I want to be international vegan food." The international twists are evident throughout the menu's otherwise familiar selection of stir-fried noodle dishes and aromatic curries. A m?lange of assorted garden vegetables, deep-fried and served with sweet-and-sour sauce, make up the veggie tempura, and the jasmine-tinged creme br?l?e conceals a vegan and gluten-free custard beneath a one-molecule-thin layer of crisp sugar. But even with these occasional twists, Thai staples still dominate the menu's pages. One of the restaurant's more iconic dishes, the tom yum soup, is so spicy that it has appeared on the Food Network show Heat Seekers, which features two chefs who travel around the country looking for mouth-burning dishes and ice sculptures to lick afterward.

  • Highline
    Vegan spot Highline, located in the Broadway neighborhood of Seattle, is perfect for the meat and dairy-free crowd. Low-fat eaters will need to take care, however, since the menu does not feature any skimmed down fare. Round out your meal with a little tipple — Highline has a terrific drink list, including beer, wine, and more. Check out the brews and bites at happy hour, and kick back without spending a fortune. Highline offers patio seating in the warmer months. Wifi is on the house at Highline, so you can stay connected on your mobile device. Sit back and enjoy the restaurant's live music, or take your table out on the dance floor. A relatively loud restaurant, this is not the place for a quiet night out. During the restaurant's weekend rush, waiting in line is the name of the game (so avoid Friday and Saturday nights if you're looking for something quick). If you're strapped for time, take out food from Highline. Parallel-parking experts can find room on the street, though patrons also have access to the restaurant's adjoining lot. Prices are affordable, with a typical meal running under $30.

  • Plum Bistro
    In keeping with the rest of the Plum Restaurants family, Plum Burgers food truck has no meat products on board. Its burgers are entirely beef-free, organic, and vegan?but within these restrictions, the cooks have gotten more than a little creative. The Jerk + Yam burger piles yam and Jamaican-spiced grilled tofu with caramelized onions, whereas the 8-ounce Mediterranean burger layers mint-kissed seitan with pickled figs. Other patties incorporate lentils, portobello mushrooms, and panko-crusted tempeh as meat substitutes. Also on the menu are a variety of sandwiches and sides, including the popular Mac & Yease, which is a vegan version of mac and cheese that can also go gluten-free upon request. Milkshakes made with vanilla coconut ice cream conclude meals with cool, sweet sips. To track the truck's location, customers can refer to its homepage. It even takes pickup orders via phone call, text, or really loud yelling from across town.

  • Thrive Cafe
    A health-food emporium, Thrive Cafe offers gluten-free, vegetarian, and primarily organic meals. Along with its lush, natural inventory, Thrive Cafe offers local community members the tools to create meals from those foods on their own. From the kale-packed raw juices to the cooking-with-kale classes, Thrive Cafe aims to make healthy eating delicious by dispelling myths that eating kale is the first step in turning into a garden gnome. Monika Kinsman is the founder behind the scenes at Thrive Cafe, and she has always been ambitious. She drew inspiration as a child from her jet-setting single mom and entrepreneurial grandmother, and set her sights on law enforcement after graduating high school. The unfortunate setbacks of her and her mother?s poor health momentarily altered her ambitions, opening her eyes to the healing powers of raw foods and the inspiration of community dining. Over the years, Monika realized that what she really wanted was to work for the betterment of herself and her community, and with that, Thrive Cafe was born.

  • Zaw Artisan Pizza
    There was once a pair of friends who shared the same name. These friends?the Gregs?also shared the belief that even casual food should be fresh. So they put their heads together to found Zaw Artisan Pizza in Seattle, where seasonal, organic, unique, local ingredients (endearingly referred to as "S.O.U.L.") top carefully crafted bake-at-home pies. Diners can watch over the counter as pizza artistes decorate traditional white, whole wheat, or gluten-free crusts with toppings such as free-range chicken breast, hearty spinach, and fresh artisan cheeses. Each pie leaves the shop unfrozen?as evidenced by the lack of freezers in the stores?to be baked to a golden crisp inside the customer's oven or backyard iron forge. To further their commitment to quality, the Gregs strive to source local ingredients from neighborhood farmers' markets whenever possible.

  • Turnpike Pizza
    Turnpike Pizza specializes in New York?style pizza and northwestern brews. The restaurant takes on an air similar to a cafe, with floor-to-ceiling windows, brick walls, a handwritten menu sign. The staff even reserves a corner booth for a family of whirring bean grinders. Chefs use a paddle to remove thin-crust pies from the oven, instead of using it to swim through the stream of marinara sauce that flows through the kitchen. They can craft pizzas to fit dietary restrictions by sprinkling on fistfuls of vegan cheese or bakingthe best tasting gluten-free crusts. Gelatiamo gelato and sorbets cool tongues after hot meals, and pitchers of craft beers and glasses of Italian wine can cool them during meals.
