Red Lentil Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant Announces Grand Opening Celebration, December 10 in Sharon, MA

Health-conscious community excited for location to open in town center

SHARON, MA, 12/3/21 — As food trends skew heavily toward plant-based cuisine and healthy alternatives, the timely launch of Chef Pankaj Pradhan’s second location, Red Lentil Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant at 1 Pond Street in Sharon, Massachusetts, is in line with modern lifestyles.

“We’ve shifted to a new era of plant-based cuisine,” Chef Pradhan says. “The vegan movement has gone mainstream, and we’re already feeling the enthusiasm of the community of Sharon.”

Chef Pradhan is a leader in introducing distinctive vegan cuisine to the Boston area. Pradhan’s unique culinary style mixes his vegan background with flavors and dishes from around the globe. His award-winning Red Lentil Vegan & Vegetarian Restaurant has attracted loyal Watertown-area residents since 2009, including throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Red Lentil offers locally sourced vegan and vegetarian lunch, dinner, and brunch—soups, salads, appetizers, mains, and desserts—as well as smoothies, vegan juices, and organic wines and beers. Most items are either gluten-free or soy-free, and can be prepared vegan. While the sister location will open with the Watertown menu, Chef Pradhan anticipates modifying the Sharon menu in the coming months.

The momentum on Facebook and Instagram has been favorable, especially from residents who currently travel to find vegan food. One follower commented, “So excited! When we moved from Arlington to Sharon, we missed our old eateries, including Red Lentil. Can’t wait to come in and eat!!” Another says, “This area is sorely lacking in vegan restaurants. I can barely contain my excitement!”

On Friday, December 10 at 3PM, a ribbon-cutting will be held at 1 Pond Street with town officials, including Bill Heitin and Hanna Switlekowski from the Select Board and other invited guests. From 4 PM–8 PM Red Lentil Sharon’s grand opening celebration will be open to the public. A free vegan buffet of appetizers and dinner options will be available, allowing diners to sample the menu, and coupon cards will be handed out. The full bar is expected to be open.

Regular dine-in, takeout, and delivery service (via common apps) will be available beginning on Saturday, December 11.
