When a vegan goes to a diner, what does he order? Sorry, no punchline here. Vegans and diners typically don’t mix, that is, until Fare Well entered the scene. Doron Petersan of Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats opened her newest spot to serve plant-based diner fare to all sorts of eaters, but especially for vegans. Find meat-, dairy- and egg-free versions of classics, like tofu scramble, seitan and waffles, pancakes, milkshakes and a mushroom-chickpea burger. Even carnivores won’t be disappointed by the hearty main courses on the dinner menu. Southern fried seitan stands in for chicken, mushroom scampi replaces shrimp and pierogis are stuffed with flavorful nut cheeses that don’t leave you craving the real thing. Since Petersan is the queen of vegan cupcakes, don’t skip dessert.
