Welcome to St. Louis’ first Plant-based Restaurant Week! Mark your calendar for May 1-7, 2022 to enjoy a variety of what Kirkwood and Webster Groves restaurants have to offer! Welcome to St. Louis’ first Plant-based Restaurant Week! Mark your calendar for May 1-7, 2022 to enjoy a variety of what Kirkwood and Webster Groves restaurants have to offer! The goal is to feature plant-based, vegan items from “regular” (non-plant-based forward) restaurants to accomplish our mission of getting more people around the table together and to easily introduce plant-based foods to those who are curious about a plant-based diet. With such a continued surge of interest in a plant-based diet, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for friends and families to dine together without someone feeling like they are a burden on the rest of the group. Hey, we get that and want you to enjoy a great dining experience not only for that anxious plant-based diner, but also for the rest of the group who does not know how to cater to their needs.
