Bubbly queso fundido, jackfruit-Beyond Meat birria with dipping broth, the “world’s biggest taco” (that’s easily as big as an adult’s forearm), and nearly 20 other plant-based tacos all await lovers of the humble handheld at Tacotarian. When the restaurant opened in 2018, the goal was to have a taco shop on every corner.

5 Graze Kitchen

When it comes to Chef Amelia Cooper’s Graze Kitchen, plan for a few return trips to get the best of her spectacular all-day menu. Kick-off with a brunch of crispy cauliflower and flaky biscuits smothered in gravy. For lunch, indulge in Korean BBQ nachos topped with saucy-spicy soy curls, Fresno chili, gochujang aioli, and smothered in cashew queso. And for dinner, the grilled, marinated tofu served on a bed of white rice with scallions, shiitakes, napa cabbage, and a lip-smacking chili-garlic-sesame sauce—paired with a stone fruit sundae with peaches, apricots, bourbon-brown sugar caramel, and pecan crumble—will leave you wanting to do it all over again the next day.

Even the duo of desserts—an ultra-rich chocolate raspberry cake draped in 24-karat rose gold leaf and a blueberry-Madeira coconut milk cheesecake—are to die for.
