A Manitoba restaurant has been singled out as the only one in the province as one of the best eateries for vegetarians.
Pineridge Hollow in the RM of Springfield made the cut on OpenTable’s 50 Best Restaurants for Vegetarians in Canada for 2019.
The list comes in celebration of World Vegetarian Day, which was October 1.
“There’s no doubt that plant-based dining is a trend as we’re seeing increasing interest in vegetarian menu options from our diners,” said Caroline Potter, chief dining officer at OpenTable.
“We thought it was a great moment to celebrate this change in dietary habits by spotlighting restaurants that serve up dining experiences guaranteed to satisfy any plant-based diet or omnivore appetite.”
According to OpenTable data, interest in plant-based diets and meat alternatives have become more prevalent in 2019 than previous years with reviews featuring “plant-based” increasing by 200 percent since 2017.
The list of the 50 best vegan restaurants was generated from diner reviews collected between August 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” rating and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the sum of tags spanning “good vegetarian options”, “vegetarian options” or “vegan.”
