Vegetarian, vegan and macrobiotic diners flock to West Alabama-set Field of Green’s for a well-versed menu of made-from-scratch American-Continental cuisine. Though its strip-center setting may be modest—located a block east of Upper Kirby’s Whole Foods Market—the restaurant more than makes up for its less-is-more look with a savory, heart-healthy array of entrees.
The biz—created by longtime vegetarian chefs and alums of Houston’s Soya Café and A Moveable Feast—remains one of the few vegetarian outposts in a city dominated by steakhouses. On Field of Greens’ moderately-priced line-up guests find reimagined classics like portabella and tofu burgers, avocado and vegan club sandwiches, as well as meatless pasta dishes. Think like a local and order the wild field pockets—a whole-wheat pita stuffed with soy ham and chicken, shitake mushroom, tofu, tomato, guacamole, garlic and sprouts.
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, daily.
