Two metro Phoenix restaurants made Thrillist’s list of 33 best vegetarian and vegan Restaurants in America right now.
The list highlighted the breakfast burrito, quinoa burger and jackfruit flautas at The Coronado, a cozy Phoenix restaurant with a dog-friendly patio.
Arizona Republic dining critic Andi Berlin is a fan of the chilaquiles, fried corn chips drizzled in a guajillo sauce and piled over refried black beans. It comes with a scrambled tofu patty smothered in vegan crema perched on top with pickled onions.
Green New American Vegetarian in Tempe also made the list. Headed by chef Damon Brasch, the menu is 100% vegan. Thrillist highlighted the restaurant’s meat-free versions of Buffalo wings, chili fries and Chicago cheesesteaks.
Green New American Vegetarian has locations in Phoenix and Tempe, as well as a sister-cafe Nami, which is known for its vegan pastries and dairy-free, soy-based ice creams.
A team of writers and editors from around the country contributed to the Thrillist roundup, including Arizona writer and publicist Jamie Killin.
