Dinners at Fancy Plants Cafe

Every Thursday through Sunday at Fancy Plants Cafe, from 6pm – 10pm, we serve fun, seasonally changing dinner options in a more refined setting.

Our concepts and menus will change over time, and will reflect our 10+ years of working in award-winning kitchens to push the boundaries of innovative vegan cuisine.

Sunchoke Salad: Smoked Apples, Rosemary Oil, Sorrel, and Cashew Foam

We’re starting off with a fun ‘small plates’ theme, where dishes are meant to be shared (or not) with friends and family.  Please check in, as we will often have nightly specials as well!

Cauliflower Clay Pot

That said, here is our current menu.  For the sake of simplicity, we made most dishes $9, across the board.
Also, all the small plates can be made gluten free by request, and 2 of the entrees as well:

1) Cauliflower Gratin in a Clay Pot: Chopped Mandarin Supremes, Berber Oil, Herbs.
2) Asparagus:  Hollandaise, Citrus, Smoked Sesame Cracker.
3) Roasted Strawberry Gazpacho: Cucumber, Almond, Sherry Vinegar
