Pankaj Pradhan

Meet Our Chef

Chef Pankaj Pradhan is a leader in introducing distinctive vegan cuisine to the Boston area. Chef 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 delighted Watertown-area residents since 2009. In 2014, Chef Pradhan began a partnership with Harvard University Dining Services. He trained dining staff and introduced vegan cuisine as a dining option for university students.

Wild Rice Vegan Cafe and the Red Lentil have allowed Chef Pradhan to express his creativity as a chef more than ever before. Of course, running a restaurant is about so much more than just the food itself. Chef Pradhan loves interacting with people, and food brings people together. A good meal can transform a person’s attitude and outlook on the day. He has created a menu that incorporates cuisines from around the world because he wants to entice and please a diverse group of both vegans and non-vegans.
