Ricky Williams is hulking proof that vegan athletes last longer and play harder, and we’re sure that his new restaurant, PROOF, will have the same stamina that he has.

PROOF opened today in the Z Ocean Hotel on Miami Beach’s Ocean Drive, and the most delectable part of its menu is the Ricky’s Picks section. Handpicked by the NFL star so that he “can order entrées,” the section’s hearty and humane options range from a black-bean burger to rice noodles and tofu.

Kudos to Ricky for creating a menu that makes my mouth water just by reading it. You’ll definitely find me seated at PROOF on my next trip to Miami.
