Since the grand opening in fall 2011, Fern has swept the Charlotte vegan and vegetarian community with its variety, unique flavors, and healthy, hearty dishes. By offering meals made with only the freshest produce, Fern makes a healthy lifestyle and diet a piece of cake—vegan cake that is.
In early 2016, Fern announced their big move to a more accessible location in Dilworth. After relocating, they made certain to uphold the zen, down-to-earth aesthetic that the previous location held. With a plethora of plants and greenery filling the restaurant, you can’t help but feel a little closer to nature the moment you step inside.
If you’re on the lookout for a healthier dining choice in the Queen City, Fern has an ever-changing brunch, lunch, and dinner menu along with daily specials that are always in keeping with the newest, latest veggie-friendly food trends. But their inventive flavor options are sure to satisfy even the biggest meat eaters, too.
Here are four Fern dishes you shouldn’t miss:
Vegan Cinnamon Rolls
These cast iron baked goods are made to order, and unbelievably flavorful. With a vanilla bean and subtle orange glaze to garnish, they are sure to warm any heart.
Black Bean Burger
A hearty dish that will have you reminiscing later truly satisfies any craving. This dish can be served on a bun or lettuce offered with a side of your choice.
BBQ Cauliflower Wings
If you are a wing addict, wing lover, or just fond of flavor, the BBQ Cauliflower wings are a must. Breaded and marinated in a barbecue sauce, tossed with a buttermilk dill sauce and adorned with celery and carrot confetti, you will be coming back for more.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
In the age of the morally-conscious diet, the starter menu has been rewritten. Green vegetables, the New World Order insists, are the best kinds of appetizers. For the skeptics, Fern’s roasted Brussels—gratuitously tossed in savory peanut sauce and finished with lime salt and cilantro—make a pretty good case.
