The Modern Vegan restaurant has just opened in Las Vegas, Eater reports. The restaurant serves breakfast, brunch, and lunch, and features a 100-strong item menu of entirely plant-based dishes. The Modern Vegan is the first vegan restaurant to open in Las Vegas in 2018.
The eatery held its grand opening on March 15. Already, the venue has attracted a fan base; The Modern Vegan’s Facebook page currently boasts entirely 5-star reviews.
“This breakfast/brunch/lunch spot was sorely needed, filling a void we had been lamenting about for some time” blogger, The Plant-Based Jetsetter said on their website. “The Modern Vegan’s menu selection, portion sizes, and flavors blow all the other options out of the water.”
“The food was SO WORTH THE WAIT. Let me stress that. We ordered quite a few items and when they finally did come, it was heaven”.
Eater reveals that the restaurant’s “massive menu” features around 100 different choices. Starters include breakfast pockets, loaded nachos, cheese fries, and avocado toast. For breakfast, diners can try the chick’n waffles, breakfast burrito, v’eggs Florentine, or the steak and v’eggs, among others. Some lunch menu items on offer include saucy cauliflower wings, fish tacos, Louisiana fried chicken, pulled pork sliders, and penne primavera, to name a few.
Omelets, waffles, crepes, sandwiches, burgers, and soups are also available. For diners looking to quench their thirst, a range of smoothies, milkshakes, wellness shots, juices, and cocktails are on offer.
Founder of The Modern Vegan, Gia Shultz, is a self-taught chef whose love of food stems from family roots. She told publication Vegans, Baby: “Growing up in a Greek family there’s a huge influence and importance on food,” she said. “Learning how to cook by watching my mom create fabulous dishes growing up gave me the love I have for food and for cooking. My mom taught me everything … of course now I’ve veganized it all.”
“I want to change the way the world looks at food. Anything you can eat, I can eat vegan.”
Dishes on offer range from $5 to $15.
The Modern Vegan is located at 700 East Naples Dr. Ste 111 Last Vegas, NV 89119 United States. The restaurant is open Wednesday – Sunday from 9am to 6pm.
