4 Venues for Vegans

   Slowly but surely, South Florida vegans are finding more venues in which to dine out, and many have a thoughtful selection of organic and sustainable wines as well. Even chains are getting into the act: Eateries with vegan-friendly menus or menu choices include the Yard House, Baja Café, P.F. Chang’s, Panera Bread and Chipotle Mexican Grill.

   Four of our top local destinations are:

Maoz Vegetarian

Falafel sandwich

Healthy fast food? Why not? The Maoz chain originated in Amsterdam in 1991 and opened its first South Florida location in Boca’s Town Center Mall. Falafel is the specialty here, but don’t miss the hummus or sweet potato fries. (561-393-6269, maozusa.com)
