Chicago Food Magazine talks about the launch of Cesar’s NEW 100% plant-based menu for Lakeview on Mondays. These 6 tacos, 3 house specials, and 1 dessert are meatless and delicious!

When asked about the inspiration behind the creation of this Meatless Monday Menu, Chef Lulu Duran, explains, “Playing with all the vegetables and giving them another life, other than just your basic stir fry, was a lot of fun. The inspiration for these 100% plant-based dishes comes directly from some of our current dishes.

For example, the cauliflower tacos are inspired by our shrimp tacos, which are super popular. At the end of the day, I always go back to the way my mom cooked. She made everything with gumption, and with the hope that the love she had for cooking for others, is projected in the dish.

So every onion, pumpkin seed, and pepper, it all goes back to her and our Mexican roots.”
