Henrietta Red, owned by restaurant veterans Julia Sullivan and Allie Poindexter, opened last month in Nashville, Tenn., focusing on rustic American seasonal cuisine that favors vegetables.
Sullivan has a passion for bright, fresh plates, making the vegetable offerings at Henrietta Red the highlight of the menu. Favorites include roasted carrots with yogurt, dates, lime and herbs; cauliflower steak with pistachio aillade, cauliflower puree, sultana, fennel and conserva; and mushroom risotto with piccolo farro, oyster mushrooms, leeks and fennel.
Vegan and vegetarian dishes rule the menu at Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Paulette Cole's new abcV in New York City.
Chef de cuisine Neal Harden has created a menu featuring energizing breakfast dishes such as a vanilla chia bowl with dates, cacao, Brazil nuts, hemp and fruit, and lunch dishes that include wild mushroom burdock noodles with tempeh and kitchari, an Ayurvedic recipe contributed by Deepak Chopra, which combines rice and lentils and is topped with yogurt, mint, fermented carrot, and turmeric.
Chef Amanda Cohen, known for her award-winning vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy in New York, recently opened Thyme inside United’s Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.
Thyme’s beverage menu uses fresh and organic herbs, spices and produce to mimic the all-vegetarian menu, which includes dishes like ancho mushroom tacos; grilled romanesco steak with cashew and creamed kale; and sunchoke ratatouille.
