As the Valley witness exponential vegan growth in 2018 (one new vegan restaurant opened in March, three more are slated to open this month – Blinders Burgers & Brunch, Chef Kenny’s and Amber’s Smoked Vegan, plus another two opening in May), more restaurants around Las Vegas are expanding their options to cater to the burgeoning vegan dining scene in Las Vegas and the ever-expanding vegan demand.
Now, Red Rock Resort and Green Valley Ranch (Station Casino properties) are looking to offer more vegan food in Las Vegas at their restaurants, too.
“We are always looking to exceed our guests’ expectations and with the growing popularity by many who prefer vegan and vegetarian options, we saw an opportunity to expand our menus throughout several of our restaurants,” says Station Casinos Spokeswoman Lori Nelson.
Red Rock Resort
At Red Rock resort, T-Bones Chophouse serves the Impossible Beef Vegan Bolognese with chickpea pasta, basil and nutritional yeast.
The Grand Café’s vegan options include curry spinach, the Impossible Burger with fries and Impossible Meatless Pasta Bolognese. (For more restaurants in Las Vegas serving the Impossible Burger, check out our guide highlighting where to find the Impossible Burger and Beyond Burgers.) Hearthstone now features and herb and green salad, jalapeño hummus, sliders lettuce cups, crispy brussels sprouts and faro risotto. The Mexican spot at Red Rock, Libre, serves tofu fajitas, a brown rice bowl, vegan nachos, grilled portobello tacos, coconut ceviche and more. Mass Osteria’s new vegan eats include a few salads, pasta al pomodoro and beet salad.
Finally, Yard House features a vegetarian menu and a vegan burger. This restaurant chain has always been iffy with us — nearly every dish they have on the vegetarian menu is not vegan. Although they feature Gardein, nearly all of these dishes are made with dairy, so be sure to triple check.
Green Valley Ranch
In Henderson, Green Vally Ranch’s Hank’s Fine Steaks & Martinis has a vegan menu that includes mushroom rockefeller, a roasted cauliflower piccata and season sorbet trio.
The Italian Bottiglia serves up a vegan bolognese and other dishes that can be tweaked vegan. Finally, our favorite at GVR, Borracha, serves up many of the same eats as Libre including nachos, coconut ceviche and veggie and tofu fajitas.
