Respond to Review of Nine Mile

Review: I've tried this place twice and I don't like it. None of my dinner companions have liked it either. It gives the feeling that a bunch of college kids planned the menu based on what they know how to cook. The menu is almost entirely pasta dishes (although they do offer a quinoa pasta option) and everything is a bit bland and uninspired - even things that are billed as spicy don't have much heat. The hummus appetizer didn't taste fresh or homemade and instantly gave me what seemed like a massive MSG headache. Although there are multiple names for what is essentially the same thing, there are really only a couple of vegan options and these are just spaghetti with tofu cubes and one of 2-3 sauces. And there's a chili. If these were well-prepared, fresh and creative tasting that might be enough, but it all seems amateur and a little off with the flavor choices and spicing. What they call "natty bread" is mediocre garlic bread and along with hummus and salsa are the only appetizers on the menu. I actually feel bad panning this place because I really wanted to like it. I know a few locals who would recommend it, and although that surprised me at first, I think that's in part because they have a good selection of beers, and also might be due to the fact that it's located in a neighborhood that doesn't have any other restaurants. I would much sooner eat at home, but I guess if you live in a dorm it might be worth it.
