Being near-unanimously considered the best vegan restaurant in a place like Los Angeles is a pretty impressive feat. That said, Sage Vegan Bistro has managed to claim said title, along with being one of the best restaurants Echo Park has to offer – Vegan or not. With burgers that will make even the most staunch carnivore’s mouth water, Sage has an immense menu that spans from classic american to exotic Indian flavors. There is truly something for everyone. Our personal favorite is the Bistro Po’ Boy, Sage’s take on a classic southern sandwich made with a breaded seitan, organic tomatoes, deep fried cabbage, homemade dill pickles and lettuce with caramelized onion barbecue sauce.
