Canadian restaurant group Chase Hospitality recently announced that it will overhaul its restaurant menus so that each includes at least 25 percent plant-based options. The group’s current holdings include mostly seafood-based restaurants in the Toronto area, namely The Chase, The Chase Fish & Oyster, Colette Grand Café, Kasa Moto, and Little Fin. New vegan menu options will include Pesto Spaghettoni, Spicy Cauliflower, and a L’Hamburger Vegétérian—a burger that features a quinoa and mushroom patty, maple mustard glaze, brown rice, and coco beans. “We are very fortunate to serve hundreds of diners every day and believe that we can make a positive impact on our environment by increasing our plant-based menu options,” president of Chase Hospitality Group Steven Salm explained. Restaurant groups across North America are recognizing the value of adding vegan options to their menus—a phenomenon most notably observed in restaurateur Ravi DeRossi’s recent decision to completely remove animal products from the menus of his 15 New York City restaurant holdings.
