Vegetarian restaurant Iydea in Brighton, England wins Vegetarian Society award.

Brighton, England’s vegetarian restaurant Iydea has been honored by the UK Vegetarian Society as the “Best Vegetarian Society approved eating out” for 2010. The independently owned café is an “express vegetarian canteen that offers fresh, healthy, world food available to eat in or take away, with fresh menus and new ideas every day,” Iydea’s owner, Steve Billam said. Iydea opened in 2006, and serves a rotating menu offering plant-based food. “We’ve worked extremely hard as a team to provide the best vegetarian restaurant in Brighton, so it’s very gratifying to have that effort recognized by the Vegetarian Society judges,” Billam said.
