A celiac’s sanctuary; Rise Above Bakery and Restaurant serves comfort vegan cuisine. With exposed historic brick-lined walls and soaring pendant lights, Rise Above, owned by Brian Gasbarini and Kelsey Cheslock, brings an edgy urban-art-vibe downtown. Although the Seitan, a meat-alternative, made in-house with wheat gluten and soy flour, stretches notions of what vegan can be (even your meat and potatoes pop will enjoy it) the earthy dishes like; the harvest salad, mushroom mac and cheese, or the cauliflower steak, really show off the kitchen. Finish with a soy, or almond latte, or the holiest of unholy; their signature artisan doughnut.
