The UNM area’s herbaceous new eatery is expanding beyond breakfast and lunch with a Friday evening dinner service. Get dishes like fresh gnocchi made with local potatoes until 9 p.m. tonight. In the meantime, read this week’s restaurant review and a few of Ari’s mullings on fake meats. (And feel free to post some of your own.)
Too-cute (and vegan) Mint Tulip is open for dinner on Fridays
Comfort without cruelty
Vegan food has a reputation for being bland and boring. It doesn’t have to be that way, of course, but the cuisine and the people who cook it have inherited this stigma. For proof that vegan food can be comforting and filling, we have Mint Tulip, which opened this spring where 20 Carrots used to be.
