Standards are continuously rising for plant-based dining in Las Vegas and California chef Tal Ronnen gives Las Vegas a new alternative with Crossroads Kitchen at Resorts World. Think of it as the closest thing the Strip has to a fine-dining vegan restaurant. It's a sleek and stylish space with dark tones, contemporary light fixtures and large black-and-white photos of rock stars decorating the walls.
The menu is 100% vegan. No meat, eggs or dairy in sight – although the restaurant doesn't mention anything about it in the signage. Try eggplant hydrated with beet juice in place of steak, blended chestnuts disguised as foie gras or trumpet mushrooms sliced to resemble mushrooms. There's even plant-based "caviar" made of kelp. If that sounds too experimental, stick with the pizzas, thin and charred Neapolitan-style with cashew cheese on top. Brunch runs on weekends.
Unfortubnately for vegan burger fans on the run, the grab-and-go CB (Crossroads Burger) counter in the front recently closed to make room for a larger cocktail lounge.
