Respond to Review of The Remedy Diner
Review: I've been eating at Remedy for about two or three years on a pretty regular basis (once a month or so) because they're a great go-to local place for a vegan in Raleigh. They have an entire (large) section of the menu (titled "Alternative Therapies") dedicated to vegetarian and vegan selections. They are mostly - though not exclusively - sandwiches, and I especially recommend the veggie Reuben (with Daiya instead of regular cheese), East Carolina BBQ and Tempeh Tantrum. They also have great vegan cakes and pies, which a server once told me are homemade by either the owner's or one of the staff's mother. They are delicious. Period. Everything is delicious, the staff is nice, and it's a GREAT place for take-out. As a little tip if you do take out: Park in Cafe Luna's lot on the corner. You'll not be in the restaurant long enough for them to tow or ticket you, and you won't have to struggle to find parking or park on the parking deck. Remedy isn't perfect, of course. The downsides would be that you have to pay extra for Daiya substitutions and fries. (Though the fries are worth it - WAY better than the default bag of kettle chips.) Those substitutions can add up, for sure. And if you're looking for a "healthy" vegan place, this isn't it! It lives up to its name as a diner, for sure: Good and greasy. They also close by 9 or 10pm, which always seems strange to me - somehow I associate diners with being open late. Though I think I did see something on Facebook about new later hours on Friday and Saturday, I can't find any listing of their hours now. So I guess better communication might help, too!
