New Raw Vegan Eatery to Open in Houston

Dallas restaurant owner Delia Pisarro plans to open a new meat- and dairy-free vegan café this winter.

Texan restaurateur Delia Pisarro has announced that she will open a new raw vegan restaurant in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston this December. Pisarro plans to create two vegan menus—one for patrons seeking raw food, and the other specifically for cooked cuisine. Coconut kale enchiladas, mushroom tacos, eggplant stacks, and Asian-style bowls are some of the menu items currently being discussed. Pisarro tells Culture Map, “People think about vegan food and are like, blehh …. My food has flavor.” The restaurateur previously opened Dallas-based VSpot Vegan Café and Bliss Raw Café and Elixir Bar, but has sold both businesses.
