On February 5, Life On Mars opened in Chicago’s Logan Square, offering customers a diverse menu of vegan takeout options. Unlike traditional takeout-only restaurants, Life On Mars offers a wide variety of menu items. Owner Adam Paul has crafted an entirely vegan, ever-changing mélange of globally inspired entrées, with items ranging from samosas to barbecued black-eyed peas to mac ‘n’ cheese. Savory main dishes are balanced with a wide selection of sweets, such as cinnamon rolls, rugelach, and gooey brownies—all of which are baked in-house daily. Paul is the former owner of Atomix Café, another veg-friendly establishment in Chicago.
