While not known for its veg-friendly options, this spot offers a separate vegetarian menu (upon request) with several vegan options. The staff are quite knowledgeable about vegan and GF choices, so don't hesitate to ask. The Bulldog N.E. has a full bar with a wide selection of beer available, as well as a number of big screen TVs showing sporting events. This place can get packed in the evenings, so check out their weekend brunch if you want to avoid the crowd or want to grab a meal with your non-veg friends or family (they're incredibly accommodating to children). They bake a variety of cupcakes in house, though as of this writing none are vegan.

I had one of the original vegan burger. It tasted like a blob of fried flour paste. It was red, but I couldn't tell whether it was food coloring or beet juice. The fries were okay, but nothing special. Unless you are going to dull your tastebuds to near nonfunctinality with booze first, I don't see how you could enjoy this slop.

Original review 12/2013:

The summary in the info section is right on...Bulldog N.E. is a great place to go when you are in "mixed" company or just in the mood for some serious vegan junk food. This location is my favorite of all of the Bulldog restaurants because of the good ambiance and friendly staff. The servers are always nice and even the bouncers are super sociable.

The Not Dog made Chicago style is really delicious, and you can upgrade the chips to tots if you'd like. Now if they would just offer a vegan cupcake!

This restaurant is also very dog-friendly, so when the weather is nice you can hang out with your pup on the patio.

Update 8/27/14:

Ate here last night with my visiting out-of-town family and happy to report that the vegan offerings are still solid. As we came through the door, the awesome host asked if we would like to see the separate vegetarian menu. That experience is a rarity in this town and was much appreciated! The vegetarian menu now includes a separate section of vegan burgers, so you don't have to ask as many questions. (All veggie patties are house-made; some contain egg and some do not.)

On another recent visit, the server mentioned that Bulldog N.E. is continuing to expand its vegan offerings, and that appears to be the case. Still holding out for vegan cupcakes though! I'm sure their talented baker would do a great job with them.
