Veg Head is bringing plant-based comfort food to Washington Square in Downtown Lansing.

Hey, Michigan! There is a new all-vegan restaurant in town. The state’s capital just got a plant-based upgrade. Earlier this month, Veg Head opened its doors in Downtown Lansing. New vegan Lansing eateries FTW! This chef-owned restaurant features veganized comfort foods and reimagined classic dishes. Are you drooling yet? Then, here’s your sign to take a Michigan road trip as this new plant-based restaurant expands the Lansing vegan food scene.

Veg Head Features an Inclusive Menu Loaded with Plant-Based Comfort Food

Veg Head is owned and operated by trained chef Kari Magee. The former Michigan State University executive chef is fusing her passion for cooking with veganism through the launch of this Lansing vegan restaurant. With the help of developer Shawn Elliot, this plant-based dream is now a reality. To accompany the exposed brick walls and local artwork, Veg Head features an inclusive menu loaded with plant-based comfort food. Who can say no to vegan-friendly comfort classics? Menu offerings are inspired by Chef Magee’s culinary background coupled with her own journey to plant-based eating. From Jalapeno Popper Mac and Sweet Potato Burgers to Sesame “Salmon” and Cauliflower Tacos, Veg Head has something for everyone. We recommend rounding up a crew and ordering a little of everything.

While Veg Head has a few soft openings under its belt, a set schedule with operational hours is still in the works. Find Veg Head in Downtown Lansing on the first floor of the Historic Ranney Building in Washington Square. This all-vegan restaurant is located at 208 S Washington Square, Lansing, MI 48933. Follow the restaurant’s growth and evolution on Facebook. But don’t forgo an in-person trip. This brick-and-mortar eatery joins other vegan Lansing restaurants including M I Vegan food truck and VEG-N fast-food restaurant and drive-thru.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
