STACK + Veganuary 2019

We know what you’re thinking – a restaurant that serves items like a 32oz Porterhouse steak can’t possibly have any items for vegans.

Think again!

Our amazing Executive Chef Jessica Perlstein has teamed up with Vegans, Baby to participate in Veganuary this year, benefiting the Nevada SPCA throughout the month of January.

Until January 31, we’ve transformed our normal Vegan menu into a special Veganuary menu with favorites like our Stuffed Pita, Smoked Leek and Potato Soup, and Vegan Chicken Piccata, all made cruelty- and animal-free.

We sat down with Chef Jessica to chat with her about the process behind creating this special menu:

What makes this menu different from other Vegan menus?
What I think sets us apart is the guests’ ability to ask for special requests from our kitchen if they don’t find something they like on the menu. I like to find out what they’re craving so I can work with them to give them the best meal possible.

Do you think the vegan market is well-served on the Strip? 
I think it is slowly evolving, I feel other restaurants cater more towards vegetarians specifically, but more and more I am seeing local chefs push for farm-fresh ingredients and vegan lifestyles.

How is STACK leading the way for vegan dining on the Strip?
I feel we are leading the way because we have created a special menu (didn’t expect for it to take off like this!) so that we can cater to everyone. I want them to feel comfortable knowing that they can ask for a vegan option and have a whole menu available, not just side dishes and salads. Not everyone is vegan, and friends and family that come to visit love to be on the Strip to dine, so I want everyone to feel comfortable about their dining experience.
