Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Gentle Gourmet
Review: My partner and I went here this past weekend for a belated birthday dinner, and we were certainly in for a treat. First of all, the food was fantastic--we had a lovely four-course meal, accompanied by some very nice vegan wine. (Our meal was actually five courses, if you count the special birthday cupcakes they gave everyone.) Over the course of all these courses, we had two kinds of delicious mango cups, olive tapenade with bread, stuffed zucchini boxes, a salad, fried gnocchi, basil-stuffed tofu, green beans, lemon "meringue" ice cream with rhubarb compote and fresh strawberries, and poppy-seed cupcakes. Everything was wonderful. Moreover, we had delightful company--the other guests were very fun to get to know, our host for the evening was very friendly, and the owner was welcoming and charming. If you're looking for a special occasion dinner with a fun communal atmosphere, this is the perfect place!
