Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile may not have much in the way of vegan options, except for the fabulous Nacho Daddy, but times are slowly changing. Flights, which opened July 2019, is a vegan-friendly restaurant inside the mammoth Miracle Mile.
The aviation-themed restaurant comes complete with servers wearing airline uniforms, as well as food and drinks being served as “flights.”
Check in at the host stand and you’re given a boarding pass that nets you a glass of free bubbly when you check-in via social media.
But, you’re not here for the free champagne, you’re here to eat vegan food. Which Flights has.
Start your meal with a french fry flight. Seriously. The trio of crispy potatoes features sweet and smokey, sea salt and herbs and truffle. Simply let them know you’re vegan so they hold the non-vegan dipping sauces. They also feature a dip and pita flight with hummus, baba ganoush and tzatziki. Skip the tzatiki and you’re all set on this flight.
For your meal, Flights gives you a few vegan options (which actually are appetizers … they only have a few “main” courses and none are vegan).
Like many spots in town, they feature the Beyond Burger slider with avocado, pickled onions and banana peppers.
They also have falafel with tofu tahini.
But, our favorite vegan option is the soyrizo tacos. These flavorful tacos are served with red radish, romaine and avocado and are mmmmm mmmmm.
If you’re still hungry, order up a side of their roasted ‘shrooms to fill you up.
Let’s not leave out the cocktail program at Flights. Here, you can cocktails three different ways — choose from daiquiris, frozen margaritas, martinis, mules, mojiots and more, plus beer, wine and spirit flights.
