Leisurely exploring midtown Sacramento is one of my favorite weekend activities. There are always fun shops, historical open houses, and great options for vegan dining thanks to the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge. But finding a restaurant with fresh new vegan options celebrating seasonal ingredients can be a challenge. That’s not a problem at Revolution Wines where the menu seemingly always has new vegan options to try. And a beautiful patio that feels like a vineyard oasis with views of active urban life passing by.
The dining decor is an urban, casual twist on a wine tasting room with refillable wine growlers ready for purchase and a social bar scene.
And then there’s the brunch menu which we were especially looking forward to on this trip with generous plant based offerings such as Farm Vegetable Hash, Breakfast Bread Pudding, and Tofu Benedictine.
The seasonal menu also celebrates a range of plant based options from lighter salads to the Impossible Burger with Miyoko’s Mozz.
We started with the Jackfruit Ceviche, a vegan twist on a traditional raw seafood dish that just looked too fun.
A delicious blend of pepper, onion and veggies seasoned with cilantro, lime, and pepper served with corn chips to add and complement the sometimes tricky texture of jackfruit wonderfully.
Next was something delicious from the brunch menu, Farm Vegetable Hash.
This creation was right up my alley for the vibrant colors of the fresh ingredients and with a comfort side of crispy fried tofu mixed in and paired with a fun variation of avocado toast.
We finished with a gem from the brunch menu – Tofu Benedictine that does not look like a vegan dish at all.
It’s toast with carrot lox instead of salmon, tofu, topped with a vegan smoked hollandaise sauce that so good it did not seem real. Paired with blackened capers and crispy potatoes, this dish is worth a long drive or even flight. Other great menu options include Buffalo Cauliflower which is a must if you’re on a vegan comfort food bender in the Sacramento area. And Vegan Charcuterie, which is a celebration vegan cheese, lox, and cream cheese pairing perfectly with wine tasting with a group of friends.
On top of the great menu, there is wine that can be tasted in a social wine tasting room in the back, or in a tasting flight with your meal.
And it can be purchased in bottles, refillable growlers, and cans. Yes cans, it’s a growing trend since a can makes two perfect glasses for a couple to share on a picnic or hike.
If you are a wine fan, Revolutions Wines will not disappoint either. I’m partial to their Syrahs, but even more so enjoying the great vegan options for a Sunday brunch or romantic dinner on the patio with hubby.
