New Black-Owned Vegan, Gluten-Free Restaurant Opens in Grand Rapids, Michigan
West Michigan welcomes Dank Street, a farm-to-street, all-vegan, gluten-free ghost kitchen.
Owners Dexter Marzette and Dorian Vonrossum, aka Dex and Doe, recently opened Dank Street, an all-vegan, gluten-free ghost kitchen in downtown Grand Rapids. The BIPOC-owned restaurant specializes in high quality, farm-to-table foods free from all animal products and gluten. The inspiration behind Dex and Doe’s vision lies in the desire to simplify the vegan, gluten-free takeout experience by offering cruelty-free food that tastes, well … dank.
A Plant-Based Kitchen Utilizing Local Michigan Ingredients
Dank Street fare is made with a wide range of culinary expressions with nods to Mexican, Asian, and American cuisines. The new plant-based kitchen features locally-sourced products from the Michigan community. You will find organic veggies from Green Wagon Farm, craft soda from Brix Soda Co., and all-natural pickles from McClure’s Pickles to name a few faves. The small, but rotational menu houses dishes ranging from cauliflower walnut tacos and mushroom tostadas to corned beet sandwiches and mini mushroom puffs, all inspired by the seasonal harvests of Michigan. Don’t skimp on the sides—the to-go kitchen offers the option to round out each meal with truffle fries and dope slaw.
Takeout and Delivery in Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Food Containers
Dank Street currently utilizes a ghost kitchen approach to food preparation. The plant-based restaurant rents a professional facility at KJ Catering and is set up for takeout and delivery-only meals. The shared kitchen space houses gluten and animal products, however all Dank Street cookware and ingredients are kept completely separate. All menu selections were created to be easily enjoyed on-the-go and each option is served in eco-friendly and sustainable containers. Level up those local Grand Rapids park benches and popped trunks with these street-food goodies. Check out Dank Street next time you find yourself in GR and snag some curbside noms. Eat what the locals eat!

Dank Street is located at 1808 Monroe Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49505. The takeout restaurant is currently operational Thursdays and Fridays from 5-10pm.
