More than half of Americans are vegetarian, according to a new poll, but more than half say they would never eat meat.
According to the poll by the Pew Research Center, 45 percent of Americans say they are vegetarian.
Another 38 percent said they are vegan.
But just 7 percent of vegetarians said they would eat meat every day.
The poll found that a majority of Americans have eaten meat or dairy at least once in their life.
The survey of more than 2,000 people in June found that only 9 percent of people who say they’re vegetarian have ever been to a vegetarian restaurant.
The most popular vegetarian restaurants are usually vegetarian-friendly, with a few exceptions, including veggie burgers and salads at New York City’s famed Italian joint Bistro Montage.
The most popular vegan restaurant in New York, The Vegan Restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria, has only one vegetarian dish.
The poll found, however, that a number of vegetarian restaurants serve vegan dishes.
The New York Times reported in June that several veggie-themed restaurants in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Nashville offer a vegan menu.
More than half (54 percent) of those surveyed said they had never eaten meat, according the Pew poll.
Seventy-two percent said that they would definitely eat meat if given the chance.
About half of vegetators (49 percent) and those who eat a lot (46 percent) said they do not eat meat, but they would probably eat meat at some point.
A number of people said that vegetarians would prefer to eat meat when eating out.
More vegetarians are eating out at restaurants and bars than ever before.
According to the survey, there are more than 5,000 vegetarian restaurants and eateries in the United States.
The Pew poll, which is conducted monthly, found that more than 1.5 million people say they eat out at least a few times a month.
It’s likely that those numbers represent a small fraction of the people who go out to eat each month.
