Top vegan-friendly restaurants worth flying for

Saturday, February 8, 2020

Veganuary may have ended, but an increasing number of people are choosing to follow plant-based diets. We often receive a variety of onboard dining requests and have developed specifically curated menus that meet any dietary requirement you may have, from vegan to macrobiotic. Explore our selection of European cities that offer some of the best vegan food scenes at the moment, from casual plant-based dining on-the-go to Michelin starred options. 

West Palm Beach

A top destination for private travelers, the Palm Beaches is summer year round. Part of its charm is the selection of restaurants and boutiques, for those in need of food and leisure. West Palm Beach vegan food festivals are quite frequent during the year.

Darbster – A rooftop experience 

Located at the southeast corner of the West Palm Beach golf course, Darbster is a plant-based bistro for vegetarian and/or vegan cuisine for brunch, small plates, or dinner. The menu specials are excellent, and guests enjoy a variety of raw food, grains, as well as juices. (Pet friendly too, should you choose to fly with your dog.)
