I was a vegan for a very short time in my adult life, and the hardest part for me was going out to eat with friends. While it was a little easier in New York, I found that when I went to visit my family in Minnesota it was difficult to find options when we went out for dinner. I imagine it's a similar situation for vegetarians depending on where you live. Where do us veggie-lovers have to live in order to get a great meal at a restaurant?

Priceonomics recently went out to find the most (and least) vegetarian-friendly cities in the country. They looked at a couple things, including the cities with the most vegetarian- and vegan-friendly restaurants, and the cities with the most vegetarian- and vegan-friendly restaurants per capita.

It's not a surprise that the big metro areas have the largest quantity of vegan- and vegetarian-friendly restaurants. What is surprising, however, is the fact that when you look at the amount of restaurants per capita, it is actually smaller cities in the western part of the country that rank higher. Santa Fe takes the number-one spot on the list and offers roughly 30 vegetarian-friendly restaurants per 100,000 people.
