"The elephant has been reduced to a bowdlerized Dumbo-Jumbo, a performing slave in a designer cage, with its tusks sawn off and a ring through a piece of flesh sensitive enough to read Braille." - Heathcote Williams
Data website Datafiniti compiled a report of vegan restaurants across the U.S. to glean which cities are the most (and least) veg-friendly. The company relied on a database of 18,000 restaurants to determine which offer vegan-friendly menu items and compiled city-specific data to map their findings. When it comes to large metropolitan cities, New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco are the top three cities on the list, followed by Seattle, Houston, and Portland, OR. Austin settles at number 13 right behind Philadelphia at number 12. The bottom three (or least vegan-friendly cities) are Indianapolis, IN, Jacksonville, FL, and Allentown, PA. When population is taken into account, the data skews to reveal that the top three cities are Portland, OR, San Francisco, and Seattle. In this iteration of the data, Boston, Charlotte, NC, and Philadelphia find themselves at the bottom of the list.
