New Vegan Restaurant 'Blinders Burgers & Brunch' Set to Open in Las Vegas Next Month

Carnivore-Friendly All-Vegan Burger Bar Opens in Las Vegas

Vegan restaurant Blinders Burgers & Brunch is set to open in Las Vegas this month, according to Vegans, Baby, aĀ guide to all things vegan in Sin City.

The new restaurant will be taking over spaceĀ currently occupied by Vege-Way North, a vegetarian fast food restaurant. The menu will feature multiple choices for plant-based burgers and fries made with non-GMO ingredients, using locally-sourced food whenever possible.

The restaurant’sĀ chefs have partnered with local plant-based meat company, No Butcher, to create specialty menu items such as a pulled “pork” sandwich. Additionally, the menu will feature vegan cheese from local artisanal vegan cheese brand, Virgin Cheese, the Impossible Burger, andĀ plant-based meats from theĀ Minneapolis-basedĀ Herbivorous Butcher.Ā On the weekend, the restaurant will offer brunch with plans to have draft beer and kombucha on tap.

Blinders Burgers & Brunch owner Shantell Connor, who has a background in medicine, spoke about why she chose to open a vegan restaurant: ā€œI see plant food as medicine,ā€ she explained. ā€œIā€™ve seen labs drops significantly and reverse issues for those suffering from high cholesterol, diabetes,Ā and some cancers.ā€

ā€œItā€™s the place vegans can bring their carnivore friends to eat,ā€ said Connor.Ā ā€œBasically, itā€™s the place to go for everyone to enjoy amazing plant-based foods that taste amazing. Iā€™d love people to leave saying ā€˜I canā€™t believe that was vegan ā€¦ and break down that barrier. Thatā€™s why we chose the name ā€˜Blinders.ā€

The news of Las Vegas’s newest plant-based restaurant follows closely behind the opening ofĀ The Modern Vegan, a restaurant with over 100 plant-based dishes on the menu and the announcementĀ of the addition of vegan menus to two local mainstays, Border Grill at Mandalay Bay and CRAFTKitchen.

It seems as if the growing demand for vegan food is leading to an influx in options for veganĀ diners. Earlier this month, celebrity chef Matthew Kenney announced his plan to open a vegan deli and convenience food store in Venice Beach, closely following the opening of his new cafe, PLANTMADE. Restauranteur Ravi DeRossi, owner of 15 cocktail bars and restaurants in New York City, plans to open two 24-hour vegan diners this year.
