Detroit's first vegan coney island, Chili Mustard Onions, opens today in Detroit's Brush Park.

The small 30-seat shop at 3411 Brush St. offers meatless — and mostly organic — versions of many of the coney standards. There are coney dogs, chili cheese fries, a version of the Hani, a gyro, a "beetball" sub, a chicken parmesan sub, a "Big Mock," nachos, potato skins, fries, waffle fries, soft serve ice cream, cheesecake, and more.



Owner Pete LaCombe and wife Shellee and daughter Darla hoped to open the shop last year, but construction delays pushed its grand opening back. The restaurant held an invite-only soft opening the past weekend and is open going forward from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
