A few months back I spent 36 hours on the road for work: destination Atlantic City. I had been warned that A.C. was not a very vegan-friendly spot but I guess I lucked out because the restaurants in my hotel, Revel, had some pretty decent options. When I arrived I had lunch at Amada, starting with olives for a nosh …
…and Ensalada Verde (Green Salad with Asparagus, Favas, Avocado, Green Beans, hold the cheese).
After an afternoon of work I hit up the casino. I love playing Wheel of Fortune machines! I collected my winnings and stopped by the lobby bar for a glass of wine. I love Pinot Noir from the Carneros region (be sure to check out my most excellent adventure at Schug Carneros Estate)
I especially love a Pinot Noir from the Carneros region that labels itself loud and proud…
… as vegan!
I went back to my hotel room to work and decided to call a vegan-friendly restaurant that my friend Ethan told me about. It’s known as Veggie Pizza and Veggie Grille AC – I know it as YUM. They deliver!
I had the “wings,” a spelt pocket, and a salad.
The next morning I grabbed a quick breakfast at another hotel restaurant, Alcove.
The Healthy Start with seasonal berries, granola, melon, hold the yogurt, add some soy milk.
After a long morning of meetings my colleagues and I grabbed a quick lunch at the hotel’s Sky Cafe, where I had a salad with asparagus, edamame and mushrooms. SO good!
Later that afternoon I dashed off to the train station – that has no restaurants, or even vending machines! What’s a vegan to do when she’s going to be on a train during dinner? She phones Veggie Grille AC and asks, oh-so-nicely, if they will deliver to the train station. They did – another Atlantic City win!
Check back next week for my vegan travel tips!
