Bahama Breeze Island Grille is a great place to grab vegan fast food. The chain, owned by restaurant company Darden—which is known for running other vegan-friendly establishments, such as Olive Garden, Yard House, and Seasons 52—now has more than 40 locations across 15 states, making it likely the largest chain restaurant in the U.S. to offer a jackfruit entrée. Bahama Breeze, which stopped using butter in its jackfruit after talking with PETA, is having a seriously positive impact on eating out. The chain’s Caribbean-inspired menu is yet more proof that you don’t have to skimp on delicious flavor when eating with compassion.
