Google is testing a new label for vegetarian-friendly restaurants in Google Search and Google Maps. The label, which says “serves vegetarian dishes” and includes a green leaf icon, will appear next to restaurant listings that offer vegetarian options.
Earlier, Google also tested where it let you set your food preferences to show you more tailored restaurant results. All this makes one think that the new label is part of a larger effort by Google to make it easier for people to find restaurants that meet their dietary needs.
The new label is currently being tested in a limited number of markets. If the test is successful, it could be rolled out more widely.

The new label could be a welcome addition for vegetarians, who often have difficulty finding restaurants that offer vegetarian options. The label will make it easier for vegetarians to identify restaurants that cater to their dietary needs.
The new label could help restaurants attract more vegetarian customers. There is no such announcement yet, but the restaurants offering vegetarian options should ensure they are listed in Google Search and Google Maps.
