When it comes to vegan eats, there is no shortage of places to get your fix in Denver. From a range of restaurants and ice cream shops to breweries, movie theaters, and yes — even donuts, plant-based plates are being added to menus all over the Mile High, and it’s not stopping at the city limits. The vegan love is expanding out to the ‘burbs, too.

Get those appetites ready, plant-lovers — a rad vegan spot has set up shop in Arvada.

VEGAN BY DEFAULT

So Radish owner, Scott Spears, has dabbled in vegetarianism for years and was tired of modifying his meals each time he went to eat at a restaurant. So, he created a concept where vegan is the default. If animal-based protein-lovers want to eat meat, poultry, or fish, they will have to modify their meal instead — dishes will be veggie-packed with the option to add on “land,” “air” or “sea-based” proteins.

Taking over the prior Ophelia’s location at 5711 Olde Wadsworth Blvd., the eatery plays to the building’s diner roots. Guests can order food at the original diner window and but have full table service for bar drinks. And So Radish also helps out the environment in more ways than one (aside from serving a plant-focused menu) — they also use primarily digital menus to cut down on paper waste.

LET’S GET RADICAL

So Radish opened in early 2019, and naturally, they’re serving up some veggie-heavy bites like a lettuce wrap filled with Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, jalapeños, cucumber, pickled radish, and topped with peanut and chili garlic sauce. And if its comfort food your after, they’re all over that, too. They recently tested out a Southern-style barbecue sandwich made with “pulled” jackfruit alongside mac and cheese made with cashew cream.

Head to So Radish for a fun and funky atmosphere that welcomes all. Vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores: get ready for a rad new eating experience.
