Despite being a seafood-centric Asian-inspired restaurant, ARIA Resort & Casino’s CATCH Las Vegas is quite vegan-friendly.

Entering through a long, ethereal tunnel decked with twinkling lights and flowers hanging from the ceiling, Catch has quickly garnered a reputation for not only being super Instagram-friendly, but for being super delicious. Just ask the rotating list of celebs spotted at The Strip restaurant.
Dress up and head out for a night on the world-famous Strip for some vegan dining at CATCH. Vegan and vegan-friendly appetizers at Catch include tri-colored roasted beets with shaved radish and candied walnuts (hold the goat cheese foam) or the baby gem Caesar salad with sugar snap peas, asparagus, avocado and sunflower seeds (ask for a dressing sub).
Definitely try CATCH’s crispy cauliflower, a spicy aioli cauliflower unlike any other cauliflower appetizer in town.
If you’re craving sushi, order up the vegetable king roll featuring king oyster mushrooms, simply hold the miso honey.
For the main course, order up a few different plates to share. We’re big fans of the sweet potato gnocchi with crispy kale, maitake mushrooms and coconut-mushroom jus.
Keeping with their seafood theme, Catch serves up vegan crab cakes made of hearts of palm and served with a side of jicama mango slaw.
They’ve also got a savory wild mushroom spaghetti you can make vegan by skipping the parmesan.
Vegan side dishes at Catch include spaghetti squash made with crispy tempeh, broccolini, Pomodoro sauce and candied pistachios for a little crunch, spiced cashew sweet potatoes, crispy brussels sprouts, charred broccolini and truffle fries (hold the parmesan).
Whatever you do, please, please be sure to save room for dessert. The perfect end to this indulgent evening is the restaurant’s vegan pistachio cheesecake, a rich and creamy dish with coconut sorbet and black cherry jam.
