5 favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurants in Palm Beach County


You don’t have to be a strictly plant-based devotee to celebrate the goodness of a top-notch veggie and grain bowl or even a glass of fresh, vibrant juice. 

Here are five places that will indulge your earthy, veggie  whims. They are listed from north to south county: 

CHRISTOPHER’S  KITCHEN  

This is the premier local spot for plant-based delicacies. From the spicy bowls to the decadent pizzas to the luxurious nut-based ice “creams” and “mylks,” Christopher’s Kitchen keeps even diehard carnivores coming back to its easy, stylish world. The restaurant serves lunch, dinner and brunch (Saturday-Sunday), and offers beer and wine. 

4783 PGA Blvd. (Midtown plaza), Palm Beach Gardens; 561-318-6191 

 


MERAKI JUICE KITCHEN 

Welcome to Christopher’s Kitchen’s more casual younger sibling. Meraki Juice Kitchen offers terrific grab-and-go options, acai bowls, juices, tonics, smoothies and delicious avocado toast. Add a few wraps, rolls and other casual bites (plus beer and wine) and you’ve got a nice lunch spot. A second Meraki Juice just opened in the east end of Donald Ross Village in Palm Beach Gardens.

Palm Beach Gardens location4550 Donald Ross Road Suite #I-105, Palm Beach Gardens

West Palm location: 328 Fern St., West Palm Beach; 561-508-6640 

 


ISLAND BEE 

The Bee, the most health-minded spot on Palm Beach, houses an organic market, a juice bar and vegan café. At the café, there’s a daily soup, bowls, wraps, panini, salads and plenty of takeout options. After lunch, browse the market and check out the locally handmade jewelry. 

261 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; 561-619-3657 

 


DARBSTER 

Here’s a spot that loves your pooch almost as much as you do. Darbster is not only dog-friendly, it devotes its earnings to animal rescue causes. The restaurant offers plenty of outdoor seating where one can enjoy its vegetarian and many raw offerings, plus wine and beer. There’s a happy hour every weeknight (5 to 7 p.m.), dinner Tuesday through Friday (5 to 10 p.m.), Saturday-Sunday brunch (10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and dinner (5 to 9 p.m.) 

8020 S. Dixie Hwy, West Palm Beach; 561-586-2622 

 


THE NEW VEGAN 

This family-owned, Delray Beach café is devoted to spreading the word about the nutritional benefits of a vegan lifestyle. Most of the dishes at The New Vegan can be ordered raw or cooked. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, even a considerable range of veggie burgers. Plenty of desserts, too! 

528 NE 2nd St., Delray Beach; 561-404-5301

July 4th 2017: Perfect spots for your picnic

At lunch on a recent workday, I had the need to nosh outside in the fresh air. With my delicious salad from Aioli in hand, I headed out to one of my favorite picnic spots in West Palm (pictured above). Can you guess the location? Here’s a hint: The backdrop of the Intracoastal makes for a perfect lunch companion. Give up? It’s...

For the love of authentic barbecue, Americans have trekked to fragrant, smoky regions from sea to shining sea. Each region celebrates ‘cue in its own way, with local wood that defines native flavors and nuanced sauces that complete the bite. But what about our own local barbecue scene?

We taste-tested 10 hot dogs. Here are the best.

The New York Times Food department hasn’t taken a close look at hot dogs in some time. Back when hot dogs were on every list of foods to avoid — alarming additives, questionable cuts, salt and fat galore — home cooks didn’t want to know too much about what was in them. But cooks are different now, and so are hot dogs. We want...

"Adulting" can be pronounced two ways: with dripping sarcasm or bristling scorn. After all, adult is best unadulterated. Either you can hoist a credit score, fix a flat and fold a fitted sheet, or you’re not. Disqualifying many. I’m happy to soothe the unruly heap of shorts and slacks. Sheets: No. They leap out of the dryer tangled...

It doesn’t take much to transform a workaday weekday into one that feels like a notable weekend. The smell of marinated meat searing on the grill makes Wednesday night feel like Friday night. The vision of a crisp, cool salad with fruit and greens from the farmers market turns back the clock from Monday to Sunday afternoon.  Few would argue...
