Most DineLA menus offer one vegan choice per course (if you’re lucky), but everything is vegan at plant-based palace Cafe Gratitude’s three LA locations, all offering special three-course menus with several dishes created especially for Restaurant Week. Kick things off with apps like the Warm Butternut Squash Dip with focaccia crostini or the Smoked Tofu Salad, followed by entrees including the new Eggplant “Parmesan” with almond burrata or the veggie-heavy Forbidden Black Rice Bowl chock full of brussels sprouts, garnet yams, and avocado. Dessert could be the raw Pecan Cheesecake or a Choco-Flan. To elevate your outing, opt for the wine pairing, which comes with two six-ounce pours.
The deal: $45 for a three-course dinner with optional wine pairing for $20
What to order: Smoked Tofu Salad, Eggplant Parmesan, Cheesecake
