This fall, Kalamazoo, Mich., will see the opening of its first vegetarian restaurant in 20 years. The eatery, called Fuel, will serve a variety of cuisines including Cajun, Cuban, and Mexican, as well as daily offerings of assorted greens and Southern boiled nuts. Owner and chef Denise Miller described the menu to the Kalamazoo Gazette as having “complexity, depth, sophistication” and confirms that it will be “plant-based and grain-based.” On being the only restaurant of its kind in town, she commented, “What was most important to us was that vegetarians have a home. It is unbelievable that we live in a college town where there’s been no vegetarian restaurant.”
