It’s a cool experience to watch a ‘carnivore’ type try a great dish that happens to be vegan, and light up upon tasting it. We’ve gotten to see this reaction often with our new menu, which features some truly fantastic veg-friendly items. At both the diner and fire, our chefs work to create vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes that are not a consolation prize for diners in those categories, but a celebration of foods that also happen to adhere to their dietary guidelines.

From ancient grains hot cereal with steamed local almond milk, to quinoa pasta with smoked tomato, spinach and mushroom croquettes, the options for vegans, celiacs and health-conscious individuals are inventive and satisfying. Our housemade vegan burger has quickly joined the eggplant reuben as a lunchtime favorite, and the vegan curried lentil soup is one of our best selling menu items.

Here are a couple suggested substitutes for vegetarians and vegans:

  • local farmer’s table: substitute sautéed spinach for the bacon
  • shortrib chilaquiles: request the vegetarian version, which is prepared with sautéed spinach and mushrooms in place of the shortrib – delicious!
  • romaine hearts salad: omit the bleu cheese to make this vegan and gluten-free

These are just a couple simple changes that broaden the options; don’t hesitate to let your server know if you have dietary restrictions so that they may help go over what’s in a particular dish, or ask the chef about a substitute. We carry gluten-free bread that can be requested for sandwiches or breakfast, and we are happy to accommodate special requests whenever possible!
