Darbster is a comfortable and pet-friendly waterfront eatery in West Palm Beach. It's also proof that eating vegan can be fun and -- more importantly -- tasty. Husband and wife owners Allan Gould and Ellen Quinlan want everyone to feel at home here -- including the vegetarians, vegans, and organically conscious. To that end, the chefs provide a host of meat and dairy substitutes to make a wide-ranging menu of delicious eats. These include the restaurant's Buffalo chicken wings, which are not poultry but delicately fried wedges of Gardein (a vegetable protein) that offer up a juicy, tender bite accented by a dairy-free wing sauce and faux blue-cheese dip. You can't leave without sampling the signature dish, the house palm cakes made from shredded hearts of palm and crusted in panko bread crumbs. They're served as a sandwich or alone and are best when dunked in the accompanying pine nut aioli. Dining on Darbster's waterside deck is a beautiful experience, especially when augmented with an affordable organic (and often gluten-free) wine or craft beer. There's also a long list of organic teas and foods that taste as good as they are good for you.
