Al Mancini checks out VegeNation, the new vegetarian restaurant from Donald Lemperle in Downtown Las Vegas. “VegeNation … for the most part) treats plants like plants, and does it creatively and skillfully enough that even hardcore carnivores won’t miss the animals.” He says the Asian dumplings stuffed with shiitake mushrooms and spinach “are far better than any pork or shrimp gyoza could ever be.” He also recommends the forbidden rice, curried red beans and quinoa and a Mexican black bean spin on hummus. He recommends avoiding the “dry” tamale and the “gummy” sweet potato-filled pasta. “VegeNation is just the latest reason that Carson Avenue seems to be surpassing Fremont Street as the coolest drag Downtown, especially when it comes to food.” [DTLV]
