Green New American Vegetarian
Green New American Kitchen has taken on a noble experiment: to recreate traditional American bar fare with 100% vegan ingredients. "Buffalo wings" made with mock chicken are chewy, juicy, and spicy enough to trick you into thinking they're the real (boneless) thing, while garden burritos packed tight with veggies are heavier than their traditional carne asada counterparts. Plant-based burgers, po-boys, and cheesesteaks are not only satisfying, but creative reincarnations of their fat-and-cholesterol-ridden brethen.
Green is one of the Valley’s most popular exclusively vegan dining spots, and for good reason. There are meat-free versions of traditionally carnivorous dishes -- think buffalo wings, chili fries, and Chicago cheesesteaks -- that you didn’t know you were missing (or wanted a vegan version of). The restaurant also strives to use mostly organic ingredients and even has gluten-free options. Plus, after you enjoy one of their spectacular meals, you head over to Nami right next door to their Phoenix location for a delicious vegan ice cream tSoynami.
