D.C. vegans, rejoice. A London-based fast food chain, which is opening its second D.C. location this year, is adding a plant-based burger to its menu.
LEON, which calls its Mediterranean-leaning menu “Naturally Fast Food,” was co-founded by former Procter & Gamble executive John Vincent in 2004.
LEON calls itself the pioneer in “naturally fast food,” and its Mediterranean-leaning menu includes falafel wraps, chicken, basil and pine nut salads, vegan burgers, crushed pea salad and yogurt sundaes.
LEON, whose Mediterranean-leaning menu includes things like Falafel wraps and yogurt Sundaes, has leased space at Washington Square at 1050 Connecticut Avenue.
