So yesterday was my niece’s 16th birthday, and we had dinner at Maggiano’s in Boca. Upon hearing the location I immediately typed it into vegan eating out to find out how my prospects looked. Not fantastic, but not too bad. They recommended any of the “string” pastas (spaghetti, fettuccine, linguine, etc.) and garlic and olive oil sauce. They also made a point of mentioning that they had no problem creating a custom dish with existing ingredients to meet dietary restrictions. I perused the regular menu to see what sorts of items they included in some of their signature dishes, and made a list.
This was actually really delicious. Fettuccine with garlic and olive oil, spinach, pine nuts, and sun dried tomatoes! Yum! Eating vegan when dining out can yield great results, it just takes a little bit of thought.
