The Grille Midtown’s Kevin Browe goes vegan with a seasonal cobbler


Published:

“Growing up, I loved strawberry pie,” says Kevin Browe, executive chef at The Grille Midtown. ”So I chose this recipe to appeal to vegan diners, making a few changes to include rhubarb and use of vegan butter. As dietary restrictions continue to change or evolve, I want to offer something for every guest. There is nothing worse than having a menu full of options that a guest who chooses a certain eating style cannot indulge in. Personally, I like this recipe with normal butter. However, as a chef I want to reach out to all. This is a great seasonal item that all guests can enjoy with no guilt and no restrictions.” — Molly Abraham
