Plant-based restaurant, RÜT (pronounced “root”) opened Spring of 2019 in Spokane, Washington’s South Hill neighborhood. Founders Justin Oliveri and Josh Lorenzen have been a team since their youth, and they profess devotion to both the food culture and natural beauty of the area. On their days off the duo can usually be found rock climbing or enjoying other activities the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Their passion and connection are reflected in the restaurant itself, which encourages patrons to stay awhile with its modern, plant-filled interior that features thoughtful lighting, natural textures, and paintings.

Bonus: You do not have to be vegan to love RÜT! The restaurant encourages people from all walks of life (and all diets) to stop in and try its menu. Many of RÜT’s regulars do not have strict vegan diets but enjoy many items on the menu.
