If you're on the hunt for vegetarian food, a recent opening is need-to-know. Called Wildseed, the fresh addition is located at 2000 Union St. in Cow Hollow.
For its latest venture, restaurant group Back of the House has transformed its Belgian pub Belga into the plant-based concept Wildseed. "Given the scarcity of plant-based dining options in the city and timeliness in regards to current social movements around health and wellness, we see this concept being very successful," said Back of the House Founder and CEO Adriano Paganini.
The new restaurant, whose plant-filled dining room seats 132, offers an entirely meat-free menu featuring an assortment of small plates and shareables, such as harissa-spiced vegetable chips, beet poke, king trumpet mushroom ceviche, wood-grilled heirloom carrots and more.
When it comes to entrees, Wildseed serves salads, rice bowls, noodle bowls and large plates like rigatoni Bolognese with Impossible meat and super grain paella for two. Additionally, the drink list features nine signature cocktails, including a pineapple Negroni and a gin and tonic with aloe.
With a four-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp so far, the fresh addition seems to be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
Emilie W., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Sept. 22, wrote, "This is the best vegan food in the city, hands down. The staff is so friendly, the food is iconic, the atmosphere is so cute, great cocktails...what more could you ask for?"
Yelper John W. noted, "Wildseed is the plant-based restaurant San Francisco desperately needed and is by far the best in the Bay Area."
Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Wildseed is open from 5–10 p.m. on Tuesday-Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
