A hearty meal should include a sizeable mound of goodness and offer several plates, much like a baseball field made of tasty beets. Slide into a slew of flavor with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of vegan fare at The Highlands, a restaurant which opens its doors for dinner every Friday (3:00 p.m.–9:30 p.m.) and Saturday (5:00 p.m.–9:30 p.m.).
The chefs at The Highlands prepare healthy, creative, and animal-free cuisine with a dash of style and a flash of conversational encouragement. The expansive menu begins with a smattering of savory appetizers such as the thai spring rolls, with raw veggies and almond sauce ($3), and veggie quesadillas stuffed with sautéed greens, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese ($6). A variety of fillings arrive wrapped in a carbohydrate hug, creating a serviceable sandwich selection, from the guacamole-topped green burrito ($10) to the hearty cheese vurger, made with seasoned portobello strips and the letter V ($7). Entrees such as the Chikn Taco Surpreme—faux foul with spicy corn, tomato, cheese, and sour cream—can be also be prepped vegan or vegetarian depending on the diner's preference or spirit animal (all entrees $12).
