"ChicagoVeg is the largest Chicagoland community for vegetarians, vegans, and raw foodists to socialize and meet like-minded people. We organize a range of fun activities and educational events in the city and the suburbs. Whether you are vegan or not vegan, we welcome everyone who is interested in a vegan/vegetarian/raw lifestyle for any reason - ethical, environmental, health, or spiritual. "

Meetup site:

They also have several sub-groups.

Quesadilla La Reyna del Sur

This is a wonderful little vegetarian (almost entirely vegan) Mexican restaurant and juice bar. There's a huge selection and their mock meats are amazing. The super burrito is huge, it will take at least two people to eat it in one sitting. I've been known to get three or four meals out of one super burrito. They also have great desserts, like vegan tres leches cake.


Closed Friday sundown until Saturday sundown.


Karyn's on Green and the Karyn's Cooked location on Wells have closed permanently.
They are *mostly* vegan - Karyn transparently states on her website, and the servers are also trained to explain, that a few, clearly-identified items contain honey. If you're NHV (non-honey vegan), ask your server to help you avoid those items.
