Gratitude is a vegan in Newport Beach. It doesn’t use fake meat. Mushrooms sub in for beef, tempeh is used to emulate the dense texture of animal flesh, but nothing involving textured soy protein is found anywhere. In fact, you won’t find anything that tastes unnatural or lab-concocted. The food, unlike at other vegan places, doesn’t seem reverse-engineered. Instead Gratitude actually uses produce and cooks it as is, you know, with fire and stuff.
