Announcement: VEGGIE DINING

WELCOME to the VEGETARIAN SOCIETY of SOUTH JERSEY’s “VEGGIE DINING” blog.

VSSJ’s Veggie Dining blog is replacing both VSSJ’s original dining guide and the restaurant guide at NJveg.com.  We hope to eventually list all veggie dining options in South Jersey, Philadelphia, and surrounding area restaurants.  We feature restaurants offering a discount for members of VSSJ.  We welcome additions and corrections.  If you are able to help maintain the guide, please contact us at TheVSSJ@gmail.com.

The Dining Guide is organized by State (NJ or PA), County (NJ only), and City.  You can also select restaurants that are solely vegetarian or vegan (by selecting “Veg Level”), and those that offer the discounts.  To browse the guide, click on the plus sign (+) to the left of “Dining Guide” near the top right.

Other blog categories include discount coupon links, recipes, and VSSJ events.

We’re looking forward to your contributions and comments as well!  To learn more about the group, please visit vssj.com.
