Moby mentioned these restaurants as his favorites in his interview with Food & Wine magazine. "Moby On Veganism, His New Book, and His Love For Mark Bittman's Vegan Evangelism" By Alicia Kennedy, Posted April 12, 2016. LA Weekly also featured a few more local places Moby recommended (Posted November 19, 2015).
Âu Lạc, Vietnamese cuisine in LA, Fountain Valley
"Chef Ito might never speak, but his approach to food is warm and inspiring."
Cafe Gratitude in LA, San Diego, & Newport Beach
"Rapidly becoming L.A.’s most ubiquitous vegan restaurant... Always busy, and deservedly so, as the food is organic and great."
Candle 79 in NY
"In New York, I love Candle Cafe and Candle 79."
Crossroads in LA
"What Tal Ronnen has done with Crossroads is miraculous, because there are so many non-vegans who have gone to Crossroads and that's their gateway: They walk in and it's elegant and there's a huge cocktail menu and the food is familiar and indulgent."
Flore Vegan in LA
"One of my favorite Silver Lake vegan restaurants, I go at least once a week for their Flore burrito."
Little Pine in LA
Moby: "My restaurant, Little Pine, is very indulgent. ... I thought there was this happy medium where we could create something that was both vegan and indulgent that would reach the vegans and normal non-vegans, so the food would feel sort of familiar to them."
Real Food Daily, Organic Plant-based Cuisine in LA
"One of L.A.’s first vegan restaurants, and still one of my favorites. Their vegan lasagna is wonderful."
Sage, Plant Based Bistro in LA
"I think there are three Sages at this point, and they're all different and wonderful. The pizza at the Culver City location is amazing."
Souen in NY
Moby: "Another restaurant I have to go to every time I'm in New York is Souen, just because I think the first time I went there in 1989 and it's like a little time capsule."
Sun Cafe in LA
"A Studio City vegan restaurant with one of the best outdoor spaces in the city."
