Vegan strawberry salad
The Root and Around The World In Seven Days are each popping up with vegan meals in July.
The Root's “Summer Vegan Feast” takes place on July 13. Executive chef Nick Rodgers’ six-course, meat-free meal is anchored by fruits and vegetables from Ann Arbor's Sunseed Farms.
The menu includes:
For the table
Cedar planked summer vegetables
Beet and berries with red quinoa, avocado, and beet soil
Grilled Radish salad with dates, apples, almonds, and onion
Cream of celery soup with raisins, walnuts, and leafy tops.

A second pop up - Around The World In Seven Days - is planning two events for July 9 and July 23 that feature cuisine inspired by dishes from countries like France, Benin, and Dominican Republic.
One of its July 9 menus includes three courses with a crab cake served over a bed of arugula; plantain pancakes served with scrambled tofu; and apple crisp.
