Meatless in Miami, Yard House Is the Perfect Bar for Vegans


Hannah Sentenac

Just because you don’t eat animal products anymore doesn’t necessarily mean you want to forego the bar scene. After all, where else are you going to meet the Jay-Z to your Beyoncé? But hanging at bars is tough should you get the shakes and need to grub on something other than cocktail olives.


Luckily there’s Yard House, an amazing option for booze hounds and herbivores. They’ve got an entire menu section devoted to Gardein (the best in faux meats) — and it’s full of yummy stuff.

Miami now boasts two locations of the beer lover’s chain — one in Coral Gables and a new outpost on Miami Beach. Both have the same menu, which includes an extensive selection of Gardein foodstuffs — from wings ($10.95) to orange peel chicken ($16.95) to beef sliders ($11.95).



Keep in mind, a lot of the items have cheese or dairy inclusions, but they’re cool about accommodating picky eaters. The mac ‘n’ cheese might be a tough one to sub out, but you can easily leave the Swiss off the chicken and avocado sammie.


It should be noted, however, that this is not technically a “vegan environment” (since cooking surfaces are shared), so keep that in mind if you’re super strict about traces of anything.

As far as edible options, take the barbecue chicken salad ($13.35). The massive, fiercely fresh dish is just as delicious with no cheese and no chipotle ranch — sub spicy peanut vinaigrette instead.

The guac is also amazing, sans feta, and you can get a Gardein patty on any of their regular burger options, which seriously expands their meatless repertoire.

Plus, the drink selection is mind-blowing. If you can’t find a beer you’re into out of their hundreds of options, you might be a teetotaler. (If you need guidance as far as what’s vegan and what isn’t, alcohol-wise, try Barnivore) All in all, there’s no better place to drag your non-vegan friends for a boozy night out. Here, everybody can get happily buzzed and seriously satiated, animal eater or not.
