It seems that the rest of the internet is also pretty offended by A.G. Sulzberger’s tale of woe about finding vegetarian options in flyover country (see my original post here). I stumbled across two good responses, both with some resources/suggestions for Mr. Sulzberger: I particularly like local journalist Sarah Henning’s response “Dead Meat: The New York Times’ Terrible Take on Vegetarianism in Kansas City;” Henning asks readers to share their favorite local veggie meals in the comment section, and there are some great responses there too. There’s also this response from a KC “almost vegan” chef/blogger that is particularly impassioned and fun to read and also chock full of resources. In a way, I’m glad for the publication of Sulzberger’s piece, since it’s now causing people to defend their city and in doing so name the best of the best in terms of local vegetarian options. Ryan and I now have a whole new list of places to check out.
