Even though Boston’s foodie scene is erupting, no diner will be left behind. These five restaurants are all about the fresh ingredients and bold flavors veggie-lovers crave.


Grasshopper Restaurant

This unassuming Asian eatery found off the beaten path in Allston, Mass., serves some seriously delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes. One of their best is a simple meal called The No Name: battered gluten in a sweet and sour sauce, topped with sesame seeds and served alongside steamed veggies.



You can find Clover’s many outposts scattered around Beantown, each one serving up supremely fresh, clean and wholly organic meals. Their menu is small and ever-changing to maintain the quality they’re most proud of serving, but they’re best known for thick-cut potato chips and veggie-packed pita sandwiches. Look for their food truck while out and about on a sunny day, and pick up a cup of refreshing lavender-infused lemonade.



One trip to Cocobeet is all you need to refuel for the day. While they serve a small menu of vegetarian lunch options, they’re remembered for an exotic array of pure fruit and vegetable juices, organic cleanses and power smoothies. Try the Survival Kit, a blend of pink pitaya, strawberry, cucumber, pineapple, avocado, mango and coconut water.



Root’s inspired foods and juices are all about local, farm-fresh, simple flavors. Perusing their brunch menu is going to become your new Sunday morning tradition. Try out their cornbread waffles topped with fresh peach puree, paired with basil lemonade.


Walnut Grille

Go for all the upscale, high-class charm of a modern steakhouse, without the steak. The chefs here really put out all the stops when it comes to bold flavor combinations. You won’t want to miss the vegan “chicken” piccata, made with breaded and seared soy, white wine, capers, mushrooms, spinach and fingerling potatoes.

This Cruise Guarantees You’ll See the Northern Lights

Anyone who’s visited a destination known for its northern lights viewing during certain times of the year knows, just because you visit doesn’t mean you’ll be able to actually see the northern lights. A lot has to come together for them to be visible, and if the weather doesn’t cooperate, you might be out of luck. However, a new cruise aims to help travelers avoid the disappointment of traveling across the world just to be left lightless.

Interior Upgrades Begin Rolling Out Across United Fleet

United Airlines is in the midst of a major initiative to modernize its fleet over the next several years. After first announcing the plan in 2021, planes fitted with United’s signature interior are finally beginning to appear across the airline’s narrowbody fleet of Boeing and Airbus planes. United flyers are sure to notice these enhancements from the moment they step on board: Each new or updated plane sports remodeled seats, seatback entertainment screens for everyone, Bluetooth connectivity and more, all adding up to a better experience on every journey.
