Herb & Beet Offers Greater Menu Options

Herb & Beet is known for great food. They offer southern Texas style options with a California flair. From brisket-filled egg rolls, hickory smoked cobb salad and sun deviled eggs to the best ciabatta bread sandwiches in The Woodlands, Herb & Beet can definitely bring the taste.

Did you know that Herb & Beet also offers unique menu options for special dietary restrictions? Josh and E’leece knows that there are residents that have certain dietary needs and crafted a menu to address those needs. If you are avoiding gluten, Herb & Beet has you covered. Are you a vegetarian or vegan? Have you had a hard time finding a good restaurant that offers great vegan cuisine? If so, you will enjoy the various options at Herb & Beet.

Josh Lorey mentioned that in addition to the brisket options for their meals, they also offer a vegan option to replace their meat called jackfruit. Herb & Beet smokes the jackfruit like their brisket and when done, it has the texture and feel of pulled pork. It is a great substitute for meat and although it is hard to find jackfruit in this area, it is one of the great options always available at Herb & Beet.

Herb & Beet’s Partnership with Toast

Herb & Beet have been very strong advocates for TOAST since their inception and have continued to strengthen that partnership throughout the pandemic which paid dividends in 2021! One example occurred in April when they were invited to work behind the scenes with TOAST’s internal IT development team to help streamline the customer questionnaire for their upcoming Restaurant Revitalization Fund application being coordinated with the SBA.
In June, TOAST flew out a private film crew to shoot a promotional marketing video at Herb & Beet and interviewed Herb & Beet about their TOAST Capital lending program. They finally saw the footage when they received an unsolicited email from TOAST with a glowing customer testimonial video promoting its lending program while featuring Herb & Beet’s story to the company’s 30k+ restaurant clients.

Herb & Beet was 1 of 15 Toast companies that were picked to fly out to New York when Toast was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. They were chosen from thousands of other clients due to their help with the development of the Toast product. It was an amazing experience and they were able to meet other unique restaurants from across the country.
