Best Vegan Restaurant 

The Vegiterranean

We are blessed to live in a land well populated by outstanding ethnic restaurants of all stripes. But for pure old-fashioned American veganism, the Vegiterranean is the place even non-vegans love. If you didn't know any better, you'd swear the menu was made for meat lovers. Entrées include grilled "Gardein" chicken or steak, and spaghetti with vegan meatballs. Vegiterranean emphasizes locally grown veggies and gives a nod also to locally brewed beers from Cleveland and Akron. And be sure to check out the tofu-ricotta fries — which the restaurant proudly claims are the best Chrissie Hynde has ever had. Not that she speaks without bias: The Pretenders frontwoman owns the place, and she can often be spotted hanging out there.

21 Furnace St., Akron, 330-374-5550,
