This hip Public School 702 eatery in Downtown Summerlin offers a few vegan dining options, along with an extensive craft beer selection.
Packed from happy hour on, Public School serves the coveted cauliflower buffalo wings which are breaded and fried nuggets of delicious filled with healthy cauliflower and tossed in spicy buffalo wing sauce. While they don’t have vegan versions of the dipping sauce, the “wings” themselves are pretty darn good and don’t need anything else.
We dig the idea behind this venue — a self-proclaimed chef-driven gastro pub serving exclusively craft beer that delivers “an education in the art of food and beer.” It offers a rotating seasonal menu that often sources ingredients straight from our hometown farmer’s markets, and gets super behind the school theme, offering a daily “recess” (AKA happy hour) and a notebook-style menu.
Other than the cauliflower, the restaurant has a few other vegan options including a white bean hummus starter … and that’s it for pure vegan dishes minus the sides. Certain items can be tweaked to become vegan, like the falafel wrap (skip the yogurt) and quinoa (sans crema).
