    Has anyone had a vegan meal at Le Cellier? If so, would you mind describing what you had? Pictures are always great too :flower3:

    Thanks!

    Sorry in advance
    Why would you go to a STEAK HOUSE :lmao:

    I would guess you can have a salad with nothing and that may be risky as it was around STEAK

    I'm sure that you could put that on your reservation as a "special dietary need" and then the chef will come talk to you. Chances are they will probably put something together just for you. ( they do that at Ohana quite a bit). I don't believe that there is anything on the menu that is specifically vegan though since it is a steakhouse. But the Disney chefs will work with you to make your dinner memorable !!

    The OP may be travelling with non-vegans, so that's why they would go to a steak house!

    I think pretty much all the Disney restaurants are able to whip up a vegan meal, even the steakhouses. You can get more information here: http://allears.net/din/vegtsparks.htm

    Yes, I will be traveling with my non-vegan husband, and that's why we are going to Le Cellier. That's the best thing about DW, you're not limited to specific "vegan" restaurants, they all are. You can go to any restaurant at Disney World and they will make you a vegan meal, I just don't ever remember seeing any reviews of Le Cellier vegan meals.

    Anyone else??

    Also - salmon is not included in a vegan diet. I don't eat any animal or any products that come from an animal.

    Thanks

    To be clear: Salmon is not even vegetarian. For reference:

    Vegan = Eats no animals nor any products that are made from animal products. No beef, no pork, no lamb, no poultry, no fish, no dairy, no eggs, etc. Vegans also don't eat items such as rice cooked in chicken stock, caviar, gelatin, marshmallow, nor honey.

    Vegetarian = Also will not eat animals; i.e., no beef, no pork, no lamb, no poultry, no fish, etc. However, vegetarians will eat dairy, and eggs. Vegetarians generally wouldn't eat rice cooked in chicken stock, caviar, nor gelatin, but will generally eat honey.

    Pescatarian = This is still a bit of a made-up word, but it works. Essentially, this is a person who eats like a vegetarian in every way, but will also eat fish, and fish eggs.

    There are several threads that the OP may want to consult, regarding eating vegan/vegetarian at WDW:
    (from here it becomes less about eating at WDW and more about eating at home...)

    BTW, on our last visit to Le Cellier (as two vegetarians, and no meat-eaters), we had a decent meal, regardless; not as good as meals at other WDW restaurants (including Chefs de France and San Angel Inn, which were both fantastic), but better than some other meals we had.

    It was a tomato/mozzarella stack, though; so not vegan. Sorry I couldn't help with more details for you.

    Sorry, wasn't sure if vegan and no meat are interchangeable (ok, they're not)...in any event the salmon is pretty good esp if you're looking for something other the typical Cellier stuff.

    Incidentally, one of the Le Cellier menus lists this item:
    Without the Parmesan cheese, that would probably qualify. But again, sorry, it wasn't what we had, so I don't know how good it was, nor how good it would have been without the cheese.

    And beyond that, without the cheese, it probably has zero protein. :0

    Except gnocchi is made with eggs (or at least that's the only way I've ever made them or seen them made), so I doubt that's considered vegan.

    heck, the chef might see it as a nice challenge to come up with something unique.... it's gotta be easier than the time my wife and I were at the Chef's table at Victoria and Alberts.... the chef had been coming in regularly to describe each dish, but hadn't been in for a few courses... he finally popped back in and apologized for the absence, and said there was a guest in the main dining room who said he could only eat bread and cheese, and wanted his 7 course meal made from just those two items....

    wow, now that's kind of crazy!! Talk about limited options. And what an expensive meal for bread and cheese. :rotfl:

    When I was at Le Cellier I asked for a vegetarian and gluten free meal. I can't remember exactly what the chef called it, but it was awesome and vegan too. It was some kind of vegetarian bowl (sorry I can't be more specific), but it was yummy and I am going back in a few weeks and I hope I can get it again! It was not on the menu - the chef just asked me if he could be creative and make me something...I said 'sure, as long as it's vegetarian and GF I will eat it'.

    Good luck...I hope you get a great meal!

    Sounds like a high carb high fat diet lol. I think the diet they are on is the Pickius Eaterius diet. I have to admit I am often a victim to this diet myself.

    As well to the Gnocchi dish I sometimes use a bit of cream in pesto to cut the bite of the basil so that potentially could be there too.

    I just went through a few vegeterian reviews for Le cellier and they all had the gnocchi which would mean dairy and eggs.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.
    Is your omnivore after a good steak? Maybe you could try somewhere else that may have more option for you but still a yummy steak?
    But the vegan , vegetarian thread bicker posted started by Plastic Letters is an amazing resource!

    Glad I found this thread. Going with a large group in October and I'm the only vegan! Le Cellier is a possibility and I see that most reviewers give credit to a lot of Disney chefs for being able to create something! :thumbsup2
