There has never been a better time to be a vegan. Stores are stocked with piles of dairy-free dairy — all the ice cream and cheese and butter your heart could desire. There are dating sites and online communities to help you meet like-minded eaters. Finally, the vegan restaurant has broken free from its self-built hippie prison. The glamorous vegan restaurant has arrived.

Now Café Gratitude has opened Gracias Madre, which also has a location in the Bay Area. More upscale than Gratitude, Gracias Madre gives Mexican food the vegan treatment.
