– Proper Burger Co – Coming towards the end of the month a new menu and one that will feature a special treat for vegans!
The final burger is still undergoing R&D, but will be made with “high-protein grains and seeds, the Holy Trinity of Cajun cuisine, and lots of love” – according to Proper’s head chef. Pictured above, and on the menu today, a rendition of the current work in progress topped with vegan chili, avocado, kale and fried shallots; this burger would probably make a decent dent in carnivorous appetites too!

Zest Kitchen & Bar – To celebrate their fourth anniversary the restaurant is offering a 4 for $40 anniversary special which includes a drink, appetizer, entrée and dessert. The “4 for 40” special will run throughout the month of October.
“Zest is all about recognizing the connection between plate, planet and people and it’s amazing to see how the community has embraced that spirit,” said Zest Owner Casey Staker. “As I reflect on the past four years I have to start with a huge thanks to my staff, chefs, DJ friends, and most importantly, our customers for your unwavering support since we opened.”
Staker is taking the opportunity to reminisce and toast to Zest’s history. Zest opened in 2012 as a bar that also featured healthy food. As time progressed, the food made such an impact that Zest switched focus from nightclub to restaurant. These stays, Zest is a mainstay of the downtown dining scene. Staker continues to make environmental sustainability a cornerstone of the business by buying plant based products, natural cleaning products and looking for creative ways to reduce Zest’s carbon footprint.
