Sales of plant-based food in the US has gone up by 8.1% during the past year, according to research carried out by Nielsen for the Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA) and the Good Food Institute. Several meat-heavy restaurants have recently taken the veggie route, and are reaping the delicious benefits.

We’re glad to see this is a growing trend in the food world, and Hank’s Fine Steaks & Martinis are a steakhouse joining the plant-based world after serving plenty of meat, for plenty of years.

Hank’s Fine Steaks & Martinis, a Las Vegas steakhouse profiled by Vegans Baby, has launched a new vegan menu. The menu is as delicious, and good for you, as it gets, featuring up tons of gluten-free and whole plant-based options. They have king trumpet ‘calamari’, ricotta stuffed eggplant, pan seared quinoa cakes, cauliflower steak, and plenty of steamed veggie sides.

Executive Chef Doug Zuk noticed a lot of guests requesting non-steak choices. He said, “We wanted to be able to comfortably accommodate all the guests’ dietary requests with something more than a plate of steamed veggies of veggie pasta.”

“It was not very hard for me and my chef team to tap into our skills on this menu, because we love to cook,” says Zuk. “But now we want to take on new challenges like oil-free, so stay tuned.”

Hank’s new vegan menu is set to rotate every few months.

You can find them at Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa & Casino. 2300 Paseo Verde Pkwy, Henderson, NV 89052.
