Green Bar Express in Fort Lauderdale recently expanded its menu to include a large selection of vegan, gluten-free, personal-sized pizzas.
The new additions take the restaurant's motto, "Veggies Gone Wild," to a whole new level, explains head chef Charles Grippo. The menu expansion coincides with Green Bar Express’ new summer evening hours, with a new focus on to-go and delivery items for dinner available from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
"We wanted to offer an amazing vegan place to eat dinner," adds Grippo. "It's an innovative twist on plant-based food while also offering a variety of items that provide both flavor and substance, two things guests may not find at typical vegan establishments."
The new vegan pizzas come in a variety of flavors, are sized for one to two people, and range in price from $11 to $15. Choose from the Roasted pie topped with brussels sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, garlic, cauliflower, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, and olive oil, or the Taco Grande, a marriage of taco and pizza featuring bean paste base topped with a wide variety of vegetables and seasoned with a spicy guajillo pepper sauce.
