Amy found a wonderful vegan restaurant, Plant Food + Wine, for us to have lunch on Valentine's Day after our visit to the Wynwood Walls. It was more expensive than our budget normally allows but, for this special occasion we decided to indulge. Everything was raw and natural and fresh and delicious in a beautiful outdoor garden setting! (Like almost all of our meals on this trip, we were able to sit outside - perfect temperature, no bugs.)
Our appetizer was the Thai lettuce wraps with a citrus-almond pate, red cabbage, carrot, red pepper, and daikon, with a tamarind dipping sauce with jalapeno slices.
For the main course, Zucchini Lasagna (thin zucchini slices instead of pasta) with heirloom tomato, spicy marinara, macadamia ricotta, and basil-mint pesto.
Amy brought along one of her photographer friends to record the event. He liked to get real close.
The restaurant website says: "Recently awarded 4 stars from Miami Herald, Plant Food + Wine features cutting edge, plant-based cuisine set in The Sacred Space Miami, in the city’s Wynwood neighborhood. The restaurant’s vibrant menu blends innovative technique with seasonal, local produce, and includes many of Matthew’s classic raw food dishes. Miami’s tropical climate and its broad cultural influences are ideally suited for the restaurant’s clean, modernist approach."
