More Plant-based Food Products


More plant based food products at Alexandria restaurants.


Local family owned establishments in Alexandria are listening

to consumer demand for plant-based food products. Restaurants such as

Fairlington Pizza, Bread & Water Company, Spicy Kraft Indian Bistro, and

Dishes of India and others are incorporating new meat-alternatives

options onto their menus. What’s the reason behind this growth of foot

traffic for local businesses?

Whether the ethical, environmental or health-related avenues of enjoying

plant-based dining to restaurants priorities remains to be seen.

Ultimately, business-owners are focused on the financial bottom line.

Local staples are driving change following market-trends. These products are competitive in price, taste and convenience. In 2023,

Northern Virginians are pushing for change in our community for a

revamped food system moving forward.
