Midtown Restaurant Inside W Hotel Encourages Diners to Veg Out with Meat Free Menu on Mondays

ATLANTA (January 17, 2011 - via AtlantaDish) – Spice Market, located inside the W Atlanta-Midtown, is offering guests a healthier way to start the week with a meatless meal on Mondays. Executive Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has created a Vegetarian Bento Box that will be offered every Monday beginning January 17 so that guests can enjoy a bounty of vegetarian fare for only $24 per person.
Inspired by the Meatless Monday non-profit initiative (, which was created in association with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the restaurant’s goal in reducing meat consumption one day a week is to encourage guests to improve their personal health and the health of our planet. According to the campaign, going meatless once a week may reduce risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity while also reducing a person’s carbon footprint and saving resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.
The Vegetarian Bento Box menu includes white or brown rice, the chef’s soup of the day and the choice of three dishes from the following items:
1. Market green salad, radishes, cherry tomatoes, sesame seed vinaigrette
2. Fragrant mushroom egg rolls, galangal emulsion
3. Vegetables in green curry
4. Spicy Shanghai noodle, chilled silken tofu, garlic and herbs
5. Wok charred eggplant, sweet chili glaze and peanuts
6. Spicy Thai slaw, Asian pear, crispy shallots, mint
