Zivio is the Bosnian word for “Cheers” which is fitting since the first thing you’re likely to notice when you arrive is that the bar takes center stage. The drink menu includes wine, beer, and cocktails. Many of the drinks are European inspired, which is also what you’ll find on the menu.
At first glance, the menu may not seem very vegan-friendly. That’s mostly because the dishes aren’t marked and there are several that can easily be modified to become vegan. This is when it’s best to check in with your server and let them know that you’re wanting anything you order to be vegan. The easy part is that a couple of the dishes that are vegan actually have the word “vegan” in them, so that does help.
For starters, there’s a hummus trio appetizer, but be careful – only 2 of the 3 hummuses are vegan. Just be sure to order extra of one of them to make up for it. They have a separate fryer for vegans, making the falafel and fries safe. For your main entree, the obvious choices are the Vegan Stuffed Green Pepper and the Vegan Gyro. Other dishes you can order are the Turkish Quinoa salad, Mediterranean Shish Kebabs with vegetables, and , the Zivio Fattoush Salad (minus feta).
Overall, Zivio is a great place to meet up with friends, grab some drinks, and have a decent meal.
