Miami's favorite spot for meatless eats, Choices Vegan Cafe, has given birth a new vegan eatery: Choices Kitchen, a spacious spot on NW 27th Ave.
The new arrival is a twist on the company's other two locales. Instead of a written menu, they'll be offering up a daily plate of vegan eats for $12.
The Choices team has been utilizing the new space as a kitchen to prepare food for their locales in Brickell and the UES since January.
"It's a different concept -- more like a community kitchen," says Lori Zito, Sr. Director of Operations and Project Management.
"We have a a plate a day -- a set menu each day. There's no paper menu. It's a balanced plate of greens, grain, salad and it always comes with a cup of soup and organic iced tea," Zito adds.
Yesterday's menu, for example, included spicy soba noodles and tempeh, kale sprout salad and
lentil vegetable soup.
Popular new dishes might even make it to the menus of the two other locales, Zito says. "It'll be like a test kitchen for stuff like that."

The space will serve a lot of other purposes as well, Zito adds. Event space, spot for community trades, coffee shop, market (think organic spices and ingredients) and more.
As of right now they're open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, but they'll be expanding to nights and weekends shortly, Zito says.
