I'm doing a GIS project on Vegetarianism and I'd like to include all of the vegetarian restaurants in the United States. I haven't been able to find anything like it, or even data on all restaurants, vegetarian or no. Does anyone know where I could look for it?

  • I'm sure there's data out there... don't you have MenuLog in the U.S. - it would also be in the white pages/yellow pages (if you have that there). The problem is you would be swamped with information and most of it not geolocated. Try Google, they seem to have a lot of data about all sorts of shops... it wouldn't be all, it wouldn't all be correct, but it's data nonetheless. Commented Nov 4, 2014 at 3:05
  • Our sister site OpenData (Beta) SE may be worth posting to on this one. You may want to expand upon the fields you are looking for in any candidate data. opendata.stackexchange.com/questions/3918/… is a similar question on all restaurants in a European city

A quick search for restaurant POI files turns this up: http://poidirectory.com/poifiles/united_states/restaurants/Vegan-US.html
