5 Restaurants To Celebrate World Vegan Day

BY Richard Latter | October 23, 2017 | Feature Features

Take note: World Vegan Day is Nov. 1 and these five eateries do right by green eats of all kinds.

Getting Dirty
Dirt has a new Mary Brickell Village location and that means area residents can enjoy menu highlights such as so-called milkyshakes (exclusive to this location), nitro cold brews with ingredients such as cacao, dragon fruit and coconut. Our favorite one is the matcha-lavender-coconut version made with JoJo tea, lavender syrup and coconut soft serve. 900 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 786.235.8033

A New Chapter
Award-winning chef Todd Erickson has been busy as of late and the reason is that he’s been hard at work on his new vegan establishment, Glam Vegan, where the mantra is “green living animals matter.” As far as menu winners go, our vote goes to the spaghetti and grain-bean balls, a dish made of pasta noodles with rich marinara sauce, basil and toasted hemp seeds on top. 3301 NE First Ave., Miami, 786.864.0590

Raw! Raw! Raw!
Plant Food & Wine is now Plant Miami, but while the name has changed, its superior vegan menu has not. For proof, try the KLC, a kale-based sandwich with sprouted chickpeas, lentils, carrots and sous-vide cauliflower topped off with seasoned herbs and coconut-curry dressing. The Sacred Space Miami, 105 NE 24th St., 305.814.5365

Green Is Good
plnthouse, Matthew Kenney’s plant-based causal outpost with views of the Atlantic, is at the top of our list. One of its main menu highlights is the One Bowl, a mix of sprouted lentils with roasted broccoli crowns and massaged kale, all topped with nori and sprouts over brown rice. For breakfast, however, nothing beats the avocado and banana toast. 1 Hotel South Beach, 2341 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.604.6835

Heart and Soul
While Soul Tavern has plenty of dishes to choose from, we believe hardcore fans come back time and again for the mushroom tacos and soulful ramen. Plus, the restaurant’s herbal elixir bar with 35 formulas that can be turned into various herbal teas don’t hurt either. 1801 West Ave., Miami Beach, 305.925.0799
