Vahim Boyd of Grandeur wanted to create a place where everyone could eat together. As a vegan for nearly 20 years, he comes from a family with a variety of diets: vegetarian, pescatarian, halal, gluten-free, and omnivore. Grandeur is primarily a burger bar, and all burgers are customizable. Choose from a brioche, pretzel, or gluten-free bun, then add your choice of vegan cheese. The sauces are all housemade and vegan, and many are Boyd’s own creations. By default, the halal beef burger comes with berbere barbecue sauce; the fried chicken sandwich comes with “secret sauce,” a vegan take on In-N-Out’s burger spread; the halal lamb burger comes with cumin aioli; and the falafel burger, made in-house with dried chickpeas, comes with ginger tahini. Don’t miss the spiral-shaped fries or the crisp, caramelized sweet potato fries. Cauliflower wings coated in gluten-free, adobo-spiced batter make an appetizer that pretty much everyone can agree on regardless of dietary preferences.
