What are Seattle’s most — and least — vegetarian neighborhoods?

Are you a vegetarian or vegan?  Or perhaps pescetarian, flexitarian, or pollotarian?

In Seattle, alternative diets hardly seem alternative any more.  And as many Seattleites have given up or reduced their meat consumption, local restaurants and other food sellers have responded to the demand. Meat-free eating options abound here, and Seattle is often ranked among the country’s best cities for vegetarians and vegans.

While we don’t know the exact number, it’s a safe bet that this city has one of the largest vegetarian and vegan populations in the U.S. But where in Seattle are they most heavily concentrated?   Which neighborhood takes top honors as Seattle’s most vegetarian?
