Can’t believe it’s not meat
Popular Detroit vegan pop-up Street Beet now has a more permanent residence inside the 3rd Street Bar, 4626 3rd Avenue in Detroit. Their new residency began in early February, and is open from Thursdays to Mondays, and offers online orders and carryout. “I think what we’re most excited for is just consistency,” said Nina Paletta, who owns Street Beet with Meghan Shaw. For those familiar with their pop-ups, Paletta said to expect a lot of heavy hitter favorites from their previous menus, like the ‘filet no fish sandwich’ from their McDaddy’s pop-up, and their ‘Fake Chicken Sando’ from their pop-up, Kentucky Fake Chicken. New items on the menu include the Phony Cheesesteak, which has tofurky slices marinated to taste more like natural beef, a Fake Chicken Parmie, and a brownie topped with Cold Truth soft serve.
