Kitchen 17′s menu is another good reminder that not all vegan food is supposed to be healthy. Don’t come here looking for something light, because what you’ll find is vegan bar food like pizza, nachos, and burgers. Everything tastes good - their housemade seitan in particular has a great texture. This Lakeview spot is BYOB, but the space feels like a bar (dark, with lots of wood and dim lighting). Just don’t look for a salad on the menu - you won’t find one.
