You’re definitely in the right place right now if you’re vegan or merely vegan-curious — San Francisco chefs have long been able to work wonders with creating dishes that are made without the inclusion of any kind of animal products. These vegan eateries offer satisfying meat-free options for first-timers as well as longtime advocates of the benefits and pleasures of plant-based eating.
