Renegades of Sunset is vegan, but it isn’t kale-and-alfalfa-sprouts vegan. It’s junk food, essentially, but elegant, vegetable-based junk food. They serve a big veggie burger, for example, with a thick beet-and-mushroom patty and some optional housemade tempeh bacon that does, in fact, kind of look and taste like pork belly. There’s also a very sloppy cheesesteak sandwich with seitan steak on a crunchy baguette, and, if you’re looking for some vegetables in their original form, you can get a quinoa bowl with kale and sweet potatoes. This is the best option for fun vegan food in Industry City and, as an added bonus, the staff is super nice.
