Vegan Restaurant Week will begin at the end of April, but one participating restaurant, SuGa in Rittenhouse, will offer its special $35 vegan menu early.
The three-course tasting menu, with an optional wine and tea pairing for an additional $20, includes popular SuGa dishes, as well as new items. It will be available March 26 through May 5. The final week will run concurrently with Vegan Restaurant Week.
SuGa is a modern Chinese restaurant, owned and operated by culinary legend Susanna Foo and her son Gabe.
On the menu are favorites like roasted butternut squash soup, charred cauliflower steak and spicy mapo tofu.
New menu items include the Tofu Tower, which features layers of zucchini, tomato, and Chinese eggplant, and the vegan fried brown rice and vegan bao buns with roasted shiitake, eggplant, tomato and chili sauce.
