New Vegan Fine Dining Restaurant Just Opened in Dallas
The gourmet vegan restaurant Belse Plant Cuisine recently opened in Dallas, TX. The new restaurant was founded by the owners and operators of Little Pine, a popular vegan restaurant in Los Angeles founded in 2015 by vegan musician and animal activist Moby with the goal of donating 100 percent of its profits to charities. Since Moby left the restaurant in 2020, Little Pine has been run by local vegetable investors and continues to support animal welfare organizations.
On the menu
The Belse menu is similar to Little Pine and features dishes like ketchup flight with spiced french fries, crispy cauliflower with charred pineapple aioli dip, tomato caprese with cashew mozzarella and balsamic glaze, panko crusted piccata with crushed red Potato and sauteed green bean desserts like Milk & Cookies and C&C Mousse. The restaurant also offers a children’s menu with smaller portions of mac and cheese, as well as vegan chicken tenders with french fries.
Upscale vegan cuisine in Dallas
Billy Diaz, Executive Chef of Belse, says Dallas was the largest city in America that didn’t have an upscale or upscale vegan restaurant like Philadelphia’s Vedge, Los Angeles’s Crossroads or Oakland’s Millenium. “There are so many great vegan restaurants in Dallas that are more comfort food, but that [upscale] The niche appeared to be open, ”Diaz told VegNews. “And after meeting hundreds of customers eating in all countries [the restaurants] regularly this seemed to be a unanimous opinion. “
Belse joins the thriving vegan scene of restaurants, food trucks, stores and grocery brands in Dallas such as TLC (“Tastes Like Chicken”) Vegan Kitchen, El Palote Panadería, Lucky Mouth Grocery and Mindful Mortal Cheese.
