Violette’s Vegan Organic Eatery & Juice Bar
Address: 8560 W. Desert Inn Road
Status: Open daily from 5 to 10 p.m., breakfast and lunch soon
An organic vegan restaurant with more than salads on the menu arrives with Violette’s Vegan Organic Eatery & Juice Bar. For now, the restaurant is only offering dinner, but soon breakfast and lunch will arrive.
Created by Cynthia Violette, the restaurant features a menu from chef Mark Rasmussen, the force behind the former Veggie Works Restaurant in New Jersey. Violette has a formidable reputation as a professional poker player, who won a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2004.
Try the Bubba Ke Bubba with two grilled seitan kebab skewers or gluten-free Zucchini Zen Sticks. Sassy Seitan Wings, an oven baked mac and cheese with tempeh wedges, and The Hungry Man, a stew made with chunks of braised seitan, tempeh and tofu make up some of the dishes on the menu. Platters here baked and breaded eggplant layered with marinara sauce, stir fry with seitan chicken and a Mediterranean platter with chick pea falafel, sesame tahini sauce, cashew yogurt, Tzatziki sauce and hummus.
