Julie Chernoff and Laura Hine | June 28, 2017 | Feature National

Part of our 40 finest things happening on the North Shore food scene right now.

1. Aloha Poke Co. You wouldn’t think of a place known for raw fish as vegan-friendly, but with marinated tofu as the protein and limitless customization options, it’s a snap to get a totally plant-based bowl. 630 Davis St., Evanston

2. Marigold Maison Indian food is traditionally vegetarian-friendly, and the upscale and spacious Marigold Maison has colorful options like paneer tikka or malai kofta—eat that rainbow! 900 Milwaukee Ave., Lincolnshire

3. Restaurant Michael Chef Michael Lachowicz is looking fit and lean these days, and he wants to share his healthier-eating philosophy with diners. The Flavor Fit menu offers dishes low in both fat and calories, but still filled with seasonal, vibrant food. 64 Green Bay Road, Winnetka

4. Saranello’s With a dedicated gluten-free menu, you can confidently order everything from roast chicken with peppers to gluten-free pasta. 601 N. Milwaukee Ave., Wheeling

5. Shakou Restaurants This growing mini-empire of Asian restaurants is known for a fun vibe and delicious sushi rolls. Add to that numerous gluten-free choices from entrees to sashimi. Multiple locations
