Meatless Monday: BBQ seitan at Gather 22

Gather 22 opened in Fall Creek Place last month, and it does it all — coffee, cocktails, lunch and dinner.

  • It's a sister restaurant to Byrne's Grilled Pizza in Butler-Tarkington, and the famous super-thin crust pie is on both lunch and dinner menus.

The intrigue: Their relatively small lunch menu had all kinds of veg-friendly options.

What to order: The BBQ seitan sandwich.

  • The seitan is tender and the barbecue sauce is flavorful, but the real star is the pillow-soft, hoagie-style bread.
  • Pro tip: For $5 extra, upgrade your side from chips to one of Gather's house-made sides. The couscous salad — made with pearl couscous and tossed with a lemon thyme vinaigrette — is a winner if you, like me, are looking for something light and bright to cut through the richness of holiday fare you may or may not have overindulged in.

Cost: $14 (+$5 with the side upgrade).

If you go: 22 E. 22nd St.

  • Open 8am to 10pm Tuesday-Thursday, 8am to 11pm Friday and Saturday, and 9am to 9pm Sunday.
