Quantcast Vegetarian StarMario Batali Supports Meatless Mondays In His Restaurants

8th Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner

Mario Batali has announced that he supports Meatless Mondays!

The chef who has given hints during interviews that people should focus more on plant based foods instead of meats, will have all of his 14 restaurants adhere to the veggie holiday as well.

Every Monday, there will be at least 2 vegetarian dishes served, such as pasta or pizza.

In addition, many of the restaurants will designate the items as Meatless Mondays options, with Mario’s “MM” logo.

“The fact is, most people in the U.S. eat way more meat than is good for them or the planet,” maintains Batali.

“Asking everyone to go vegetarian or vegan isn’t a realistic or attainable goal. But we can focus on a more plant-based diet. That’s why I’m such a big believer in the Meatless Monday movement!”

Visit the Meatless Mondays website, a project by the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, for more information on the meat-out day, including recipes.
