Verdine is designed as a welcoming neighborhood restaurant that nurtures your body and feeds your soul. Our 100% fully plant-based, vegan menu is full of global flavors, seasonal ingredients, and made from scratch items proving healthy living is anything but a sacrifice.
Verdine’s mission is to bring healthy, plant-based, locally sourced, and seasonally inspired food to Houstonians. We strive to craft every dish rooted in balanced nutritional, utilizing whole, plant-based ingredients with global influences and innovative twists on traditional vegan cuisine. We value integrity in both the service to our customers and the ingredients we source. We value a quality and consistent experience for our customers and the dishes we create. We’re committed to serving food which reflects our manta, ‘Eat with a Purpose’. We value the health benefits, the concerns about the environment, the ethical convictions, and the pleasure seeking aspects of the food we serve just as our customers do.
Stephanie Hoban our founder and executive chef first began selling her plant based meals in 2013 at her farmer’s market stand. Since then, her passion for making healthy food and a plant based diet more achievable and enjoyable has driven her successful operation of a food truck business and now Houston’s newest vegan restaurant, Verdine. Not only a trained Natural Foods Chef, Stephanie holds a Masters Degree in Nutrition and is also a Registered Dietitian. Inspired by the spices and techniques of global cuisines and motivated to demonstrate the benefits of a plant based diet she continues to curate our menu to inspire everyone to ‘Eat with a Purpose’.
Our mantra of ‘Eat With A Purpose’ comes alive with our Community Feature initiative. Each month we partner with an organization or charity whose mission and purpose aligns with ours. A portion of the sales from our monthly starter special are donated to raise awareness and funds for their cause. Here is who we’ve been able to partner with since beginning in September 2019. If you are interested in your charity or organization partnering in our Community Feature project, please send your request via email.
