3 Restaurants Moving Veggie-Forward

There’s a trendy new term entering the restaurant lexicon: veggie-forward. Essentially, it means that an eatery isn’t going all-veg on its menu, but it’s making vegetables part of the primary equation alongside traditional proteins and meat. Following the mainstream’s embrace of plant-based food and veganism, this may seem like a softer stance, nudging the meat eaters to eat less protein. (And with higher beef prices and a scarcity of chicken, who can blame them?) But we are simultaneously enjoying a new burst of creativity and imagination from chefs who are seeing fruits and vegetables as a fresh medium, allowing vegetarians and carnivores to have a perfect night out together.
