I'm probably going to the game on Friday (yay!) - does anyone have recommendations for food near Fenway?
Thanks!

Elephant Walk isn't too far away from there. Delicious vegan options but it's not cheap and on the fancier side.

Yard House is very close to Fenway but I haven't been myself. Their website warns that they aren't really vegan because of shared cooking surfaces, but if that doesn't bother you, it looks like they have some decent options. They have a gardein-specific menu! http://www.yardhouse.com/menus/gardein.aspx

Then again, if you don't mind taking the T for a little bit, your options really open up. Boloco on Newbury St. for a cheap option, My Thai in Chinatown isn't much further and very close to the Boylston stop on the green line.

Lower Depths is close and has a great vegan black bean burger and tots, maybe other stuff but that's what I always order. It's one of my favorite places in Boston.
Also in the Kenmore area: Boca Grande (burritos, they have tofu) and Qdoba (burritos, no tofu).
Beerworks can do vegan food... they took the pizza off the menu, but you can still get a custom made cheeseless pizza if you ask. I'm not sure if their garden burger is vegan (I never get it) so it might not be worth going unless you are up for asking a ton of questions and doing a special order.

Yard House is close, I didn't love it. But if you like gardein it is probably better. It might be super busy. There is also a Chipotle if you walk a bit past Yard House (away from Fenway).

On Boylston St near Mass Ave there is: Spikes (veggie dogs and curly fries), Boloco, and maybe some other stuff. It's a 10-15 min walk to Fenway, maybe?

Elephant Walk is SO good, but more $.

This thread is old, but for future reference, I just found out that El Pelón Taqueria has vegan tamales w/Daiya cheese! Which makes me think they will probably sub Daiya for other menu items. I haven't actually eaten there yet but I've heard good things.

This is awesome to know! I haven't been there since the fire burnt it all down... years ago.

Again, I know this thread is old but, in case not everyone knows: Fenway has vegan veggie dogs! They also have veggie burgers, but I'm not sure if they are vegan.

In case you want to find them, they are all the way behind Home Plate. You literally have to walk the whole way around until you hit a wall. And then there's a "Healthy Choices" (or something) cart, with a sign that says veggie dogs. They're pretty tasty too.

That's awesome to know about Fenway! I'll definitely make the trek to find them next time I'm there.

Every time I get the vegan hotdog at Fenway I'm always the only one at that booth, haha, and it looks like no one ever buys anything there. I hope they keep them around because they're pretty tasty.

what do you consider newish?
there is Veggie Galaxy in Central Square right next to the Middle East. i wanna say it's been there 3-4 years (?)

it's diner style comfort food. supposedly the desserts are excellent. i have yet to go as i live out in the suburbs.

Thanks, appreciated! Veggie Galaxy is def on my list. I haven't been to the Boston area in 4-5 years? but did spend some time living in East Cambridge between Central & Kendall during my college years (2000-2004), so visiting that area again will be swell. Hoping, pleading for snow. Staying in Kenmore Square, but taking the t and walking when possible.

Any recs for 'fancy' vegan-friendly (but not exclusively veg) spots I can meet an old friend at? Bonus points for nice cocktails/wine offerings and downtown-ish.

ill let the actual city folks answer that. i know a couple places that would be considered fancy vegan but are not in Boston proper and i dont know how easily they would be to get to on the T. (i live 45 minutes west of Boston)

True Bistro in Somerville is nice and Red Lentil in Watertown but again they dont really fit into your geographic area of desire!
