PVD Vegan Restaurant Week Highlights Plant-Based Offerings in Rhode Island

This year, Providence joins the ranks of Philadelphia, Colorado Springs and Baltimore with the introduction of its own Vegan Restaurant Week. Starting on World Vegan Day, November 1, and running through November 7, local restaurants of all kinds have committed to offering two or three clearly labeled vegan specials or a specially priced, multi-course vegan menu. 

Co-founded by Chris Belanger and Karen Krinsky from Like No Udder, a vegan soft-serve ice cream truck and one of the first dairy-free ice cream parlors in the country, their goals are to highlight the diverse plant-based offerings available in Rhode Island, create options for the community and demonstrate the demand for compassionate and healthier dining options. 

Menus and specials will be posted as they become available. So far, Wara Wara, Veggie Fun, Rasoi, Crazy Burger and AS220 have signed on. Several more restaurants are in the works.
