Beefsteak, a fast-casual restaurant that opened in the Crile Building on the Cleveland Clinic campus in May 2018, has a name that doesn’t fit its menu or its mission and might even be off-putting to someone who might like it.
Its subtitle is “vegetables, unleashed” and it says “Beefsteak is where fresh, market-driven vegetables take center stage.” It specializes in veggie-based build-your-own bowls constructed on greens, flash-cooked vegetables, grains, sauces and toppings — and if you want, they’ll toss on a little meat. The menu also features soups and “sandwiches that would usually have meat but are replaced by some of the tastiest veggies around.”
Beefsteak is an offshoot of the four Beefsteak restaurants owned by noted chef José Andrés, and the first outside the D.C. area.
