In response to the District’s “Meat Week”, vegetarians and vegans alike raised their foliage in the face of the shameless flesh binging festival. The carnivorous festival ended February 5, just in time to allow football fans the chance to feast on piles of meaty Super Bowl treats.
Starting on Monday February 6 through February 13 Barcode will be joining the ranks of the meatless in celebration of DC Meat-Free Week. Guests will have the option of ordering from the standard menu or the DC vegetarian restaurant menu. The vegetarian options will include starters, soups, salads, pizzas, entrees, and desserts.
The grass fed will have a chance to feast on all the nuts and berries they can stomach. In addition to already vegetarian restaurants like Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats, Café Green, and Elizabeth’s Gone Raw, non-vegetarian restaurants like Argonaut, and Casa Oaxaca, several other DC restaurants will offer meat-free menu items in honor of the vegetarian-themed week. Even the food trucks are getting in on the action starting February 8.
