The 2017 Good Food Restaurant Scorecard ranks the Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100 Restaurants according to the breadth and depth of their plant-based entrées and their promotion of plant-based eating. With 32% of all U.S. restaurant sales coming from just 100 restaurant brands, these companies have the opportunity to positively impact human health and environmental sustainability.
This scorecard uses a 10-point scale evaluating multiple aspects of a restaurant’s menu and promotion. In it, we highlight those restaurants that currently offer plant-based entrées. The scoring system is intended to provide guidance for those that can do more to take advantage of this opportunity. Each restaurant’s online and in-store menu was analyzed June-August 2017.
