Best known for tanning oil, palm trees, and tattoo parlors, Miami is now home to progressive vegan café Choices, which opened on August 23. Co-founder Alex Cuevas, a 14-year vegan nicknamed the “Vegan Assassin,” started the restaurant with his brother Jorge “to provide people with more choices for concious and healthy living through a social community surrounded by highly nutritious vegan superfoods.” The menu is divided into three parts: “Evo”-lution, which is fresh, healthy options like vegan tacos and a macrobiotic plate; “Raw”-volution, with pure, nutritious dishes like raw pad thai and sprout salad; and “Soul”-lution, which is comprised of veganized comfort foods like pizza and lasagna. Choices also plans to expand its offerings soon to include a superfood smoothie menu and breakfast fare.
