      Vegetarians gain more options for fine dining with 50% rise in foodie
      eateries

      • Veggie eating boosted by cost, health and green concerns
      • Trend for eating less meat fuels rise in demand

      Vegetarian food was never really synonymous with fine dining, but today a
      new generation of sleek, modern restaurants offering meat-free fine food is
      banishing the sector's former reputation.

      The number of high-end vegetarian eateries is rising fast, despite the
      recession, prompted by culinary innovation by leading chefs, interest in
      healthy lifestyles and a growing belief that carnivorous cuisine is bad for
      the environment.

      And the majority of the food enthusiasts are the increasing number of
      meat-eaters who are now consuming less flesh – so-called "meat-reducers" –
      and not the estimated 5 million Britons who are wholly or partly vegetarian.

      There are now 30 top-range vegetarian restaurants, up by 50% since 2007,
      according to Alex Bourke, founder and compiler of the Vegetarian Guides to
      meat-free eating in Britain.
