Abbot Kinney’s vegan stunner
By Grace Jidoun
Winegard’s smashed avocado will have you forgetting what you thought you knew about toasts, open-faced sandwiches, or any other preparation featuring the esteemed green fruit. Shards of grilled flatbread, sprinkled with distinctive za’atar, emerge from a generous serving of crushed avocado mixed with capers, herbs, and lemon. It's satisfying, with a bright and citrusy touch that's complemented by Plant Food and Wine’s wine-based cocktails. You do have to work up an appetite, and for a traditional sip, Fellini's Bellini, a blend of peach, vanilla, and Cava, is the move. The Silver Lining, on the other hand, is quintessential Venice mixology, combining sake with ginger kombucha and Grüner Veltliner.
Sitting in the patio, amid a small olive grove, whitewashed walls, and rustic wood tables, you'll be transported to the Greek Isles. The serene vibe is reminiscent of a spa retreat—and after a cocktail or two, you'll find the experience is just as relaxing, but way more delicious.
