Founded in 2008, Jill Barron and Susan Thompson decided to bridge the gap between the casual vegetarian cafe and the high-end vegetarian dining scene.
Amazing!!! Everything on the menu is outstanding. I love restaurants who don't try and make a meat dishe vegetarian/vegan. This is creative cooking where the ingredients shine. I'm vegan and love to take non-vegan/vegetarian friends there.
Mana Food bar is amazing and this is coming from a man with no dietary restrictions. Even though the entire menu is basically vegetarian I love everything Mana churns out. I have never had a bad experience at Mana. Whenever I do encounter a friend who is vegetarian without hesitation I will recommend Mana.
I absolutely LOVE this place. The food is so good and our waiter is always soooo nice. The food is always delicious and they sometimes have seasonal menu items/new stuff too (my bf and I have tried almost everything on the menu). Great wicker park spot for a nice vegan/vegetarian meal and a yummy drink!
Another update, another mouthwatering good memory of our experience last month, when vegetarian friends were visiting from Detroit and we were trying to impress. Every dish we ordered was aaaaaamazing! Having the expanded space in the back allows for larger groups.
Ordered the goat cheese, Thai rice noodles and sliders. They're kind enough to replace the toast for goat cheese with raw vegetables. Thai rice noodles is amazing, taste like spicy pad Thai. Sliders patties are made of black bean and brown rice. Everything is yummy
