05 Jan VegeNation
VegeNation may be a newer vegan spot in town, but it certainly has taken little time to endear itself to the local vegan — and non-vegan — community in Las Vegas.
Located in Downtown Las Vegas, VegeNation offers an entirely vegan plant-based menu that is heavy on flavor and presentation. It’s one of the only vegan restaurants in Las Vegas, too.
Run by Staten Island native/vegan chef Donald Lemperle, VegeNation has morphed into the spot to dine Downtown. With good reason.
The restaurant is all about local and eco-friendly, so it sources its ingredients from the community. In addition, it also is sustainable (think tapping into local materials and compost, plus even using a carbon-free web host for its site).
Nearly every day, there’s something happening at VegeNation, whether its the restaurant’s Meatless Monday celebration with a local DJ spinning and free boozy cider to its weekend brunch that delivers complimentary fair trade coffee to those parked at the community table.
We love everything on the menu. Really, we do. But, if you’ve got to narrow it down, go for this three-course deliciousness: Save the Tuna (vegan sushi), Downtown Tony (Portobello sliders), and the Blueberry Cheesecake. Wash it down with VegeNation’s Lemonade with Coconut Water and Chia Seeds or try one of its alcoholic healthy drinks (can we even put those two words together?!?).
