Time Out New York recently had a “Chef secrets…spilled!” article where they interviewed top chefs of New York City restaurants and got anonymous answers to a whole slew of risqué questions. One little nugget tucked away on the insert was this poll: “Are your vegetarian dishes truly vegetarian?” The disturbing part is that only 80% of them said yes. So when eating out at non-veg restaurants, 20% of the time you are eating animals? That’s definitely upsetting. This reminds me of the Living Vegan Los Angeles Restaurants Exposed project which highlighted how lax people take the label of vegan. This is a little different since it’s restaurants that don’t necessarily cater to vegetarians, but it certainly makes me think about the pitfalls of not making your own food. It just reinforces the notion that those dining dollars should support the restaurants you know and can trust.
