VEGAN GUIDE TO EATING AT SUNDANCE
It can be difficult to find a good meal during film festivals, and even harder when you’re vegan and trying to find options in a new locale. Luckily the Vegan Movie Mafia is here to help with a series of guides of where to eat at festivals. To kick off the series, and the festival season, here is our guide to where to eat at Sundance Film Festival.
Starting closest to the Sundance Headquarters and working out:
Also very close to festival HQ at the Park City Marriott and near the Prospector Square Theatre is Good Karma, which features indian fare that is vegan friendly (menu here). It’s a little pricey but really hits the spot when it’s snowing outside and you want something warm and delicious. Personal favorites include: Samosas and the Vegetarian Combo which includes the Vegetarian Curry of the Day (usually vegan) and Vegetarian Daal.
A juice bar with several awesome vegan items such as Vegan Mac & Cheese, Soups, Smoothies, Cinnamon Rolls, Scones and other pastries from City Cakes Vegan Bakery.
Squatters is across the street from the Yarrow. They have a very vegan friendly menu which includes some really great vegan breakfast items served daily until 2PM! Personal favorites include: Beers on Tap, Vegan Breakfast, and Vegan Burger!
A cute little drive through and walk up coffee shop. Fully stocked with City Cakes Vegan Donuts, Scones, Muffins and of course delicious lattes and coffee. This is the place to stop every morning when you’re in a hurry or for that quick afternoon snack.
If you are a vegan filmmaker who just closed a distribution deal on your film, we might suggest you hit Shabu on Main Street (which is close to the Egyptian and Library Theatres) to celebrate. It’s Japanese cuisine and it’s pricey (it’s out of our price range) but the description of that Coconut Crusted Tofu makes us drool!
Stick with the main courses and try to get someone else to pick up the tab. Prices are steep for dinner ($20 and up) but the entrees are delicious. They have options such as baked Ratatouille, Vegan Curry, and Risotto. Pictured is the Vegan Curry with Oven-roasted carrots and russets, vegan soy chicken, caramelized onions and mushrooms nestled in a creamy braise of mild yellow curry, blended cashew slivers and coconut milk, served on a bed of house-made vegan vegetable risotto, served in a potato crisp basket. Steer clear of the appetizers, we were not impressed. NOTE they’re closing for a few days during the festival for a private event so check to make sure they’re open.
While this is a little further out of town, in Kimball-Junction close to the Redstone Cinemas, we just had to include the only vegan friendly pizza place in PC where you can sub Daiya cheeze on any pie. We didn’t make it there in 2012 but we plan to rectify that this year!
Maybe you are catching some movies in SLC or you are a filmmaker with a screening there, here are some killer places you should make the trek to:
It’s all vegan! Buffalo Wings, Philly Cheese Steaks, Extreme Burgers, Breakfast, Burritos, and more. Just typing all of that made us really hungry! Check out the menu here. It’s a short drive from all of the SLC venues so make sure to check it out! Personal favorites include: Sundaes, Tender Tigers, EVERYTHING!!!
Sister restaurant to Vertical Diner, Sage’s Cafe features brunch on Saturdays and Sundays while also offering delicious pastas, sandwiches and raw dishes. Menu here. A quick walk from the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center and Broadway Center Cinemas! Personal favorites include: Potato Crepe, French Toast and the Breakfast Sandwich.
