Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant offers much more than portobellos

The days are long-gone when chefs could grill a portobello and think they'd please their vegetarian guests. These days, restaurants are expected to cater to vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free diners and people with a host of other food allergies and/or sensitivities. But despite the growing awareness of and willingness to cater to these niches, there still aren't as many as restaurants as you might think that make meat-, wheat- and dairy-free dining a priority.

Many of the ones that do are casual spots, such as Native Foods Café (winner of Best Vegetarian Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2014), Protein Bar, Lotus Vegetarian and the soon-to-open LYFE Kitchen.

Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant, one of several restaurants run by Louisville-based Three Leaf Concepts, aspires to be higher-end than that. Find out if Leaf is worth the trip to Boulder when my review is posted here tomorrow.
