Questlove is continuing his foray in the food world with “Questlove’s Cheesesteak™.” The Grammy Award-winning musician is introducing a vegetarian approach to his hometown’s cheesesteak, reimagining the famed dish’s beefsteak with Impossible™ plant-based meat.
First tested at the annual Roots Picnic festival in 2018, the Cheesesteak was exclusive to the band’s VIP area mainly comprised of friends and family. “…no one believed me when I told them the “meat” was not beef, but plant-based. My team and I saw an opportunity to roll out the product on a much larger level,” Questlove explained.
The sandwich will debut March 28 at Citizens Bank Park for The Phillies’ opening day and will be sold at all 81 home games. By summer, interested foodies can grab a bite at 40 Live Nation owned and operated venues across the United States.

Ok yall, this was a year in the making so keeping this a secret was SUPER DIFFICULT!! I’m launching Questlove’s Cheesesteak! As a non vegan/vegetarian i still fell in love with @impossiblefoods for several years and as a Philadelphian….well—-i gotta know #CheeseSteaks right? We developed (and perfected!) a recipe using Impossible™ plant-based meat that we hope will offer a delicious and sustainable alternative for all cheesesteak eaters. Even better news for sports fans who never have food catering to those who are vegan/vegetarian we are debuting this cheesesteak THIS Spring at Citizens Bank Park during ALL @Phillies home games AND CONCERTS at the ballpark and in 40 @livenation venues ACROSS THE COUNTRY, and more soon! #Philly #Nationwide #QuestlovesCheesesteak #QuestLovesFood #AmorosoRolls @questlovesfood
