‘Veganism shows no sign of slowing down’

“We have added eight new vegan dishes to the menu for January, bringing the total number of vegan dishes to 30, and it now stands as a menu on its own,” a spokesperson told Vegan Food & Living.

“We always want to ensure that our dishes not only reflect their Italian American heritage and feel right for the brand but also really appeal to the flavors and dishes that the vegan guests are looking for.

“With veganism showing no sign of slowing down, creating more choice and catering for different occasions is key – from the quintessentially Italian American plantballs, to a salad with interesting tastes and textures or an unbelievably creamy cheesecake, we’re hoping to show that there is no need for compromise when it comes to vegan food. All vegan mains will be available with 50 percent off mains.”
