I went to Wedge Table for the first time, which is the Wedge Co-op's outpost on Eat Street. Had an avocado burrito. Burritos aren't particularly photogenic, so I've included a couple of photos of the building.

Modern Love Omaha

We recently spent a long weekend in Omaha. Our primary reason for going to Omaha? Modern Love, the new restaurant established by one of the coolest vegans around: Isa Chandra Moskowitz. We were super excited to check it out. We had a 9:00 p.m. reservation on a Friday night. Yes, Isa was there, doing a bit of everything--seating people, clearing tables, folding napkins, etc. Anyway, about the food. It's at least as great as you'd expect. I had the Seitan Chops & Apple Sauce. My wife had the Mac & Shew. And we shared a sundae. You should travel to Omaha. Seriously. Reservations recommended. For any meals that you can't eat at Modern Love, check out other online resources like veganomaha.com and Vegguide.

Greenfield Natural Kitchen

I checked out Greenfield Natural Kitchen, which is a new establishment in the skyway-level of Minneapolis' Canadian Pacific Plaza. I've noticed long lines at this place since they opened. You have the ability to choose from a variety of greens, grains, and the option of tofu among the "protein" options. I ordered a bowl with quinoa, black beans, spinach, kale, tofu, avocado, and mushrooms. I love that the tofu is less expensive than the dead animal options.Their in-store menu clearly labels which dressings are vegan, and most of them are. A nice lunch option.

Tiny Diner

First trip to Tiny Diner. Ordered the Grateful Bowl, which consists of roasted vegetables, farro, quinoa, kale, tofu, pistachio, avocado, wild mushrooms, and roasted garlic. It's quite good. The vegan options on the menu are pretty limited, but it does claim that many menu items can be made vegan or gluten-free. Check it out.

Pizza Luce - Hopkins

Of all the times I've visited Pizza Luce over the years, I think this is only the second time I've ordered a salad as a main course. This is the veganized version of the spinach salad at the Hopkins location. That's a lot of lemon pepper tofu! Trust me, there is spinach under there. And it was all good.
