Respond to Review of Garden to Grill
Review: Towards the end of March 2010, the Sugar Plum Vegan is/was still in the "Soft Opening" phase. The young female "Order Taker - Waitress - Only Person To Talk Too" was still in learning-the-ropes and kept having to ask the kitchen staff if certain dishes contained gluten/wheat, etc. I am in hopes that this "Soft Opening Phase" isn't going to last for long. Our offices are only a few blocks away. The soft opening menu had a nice selection of Paini Sandwiches (unfortunately I am gluten/wheat intolerant), some interesting Sounding Salads, and a couple of dishes that I would guess were Gluten/Wheat Free (something that sounded like vegan cheese nachos; etc.). I ordered the Smoked Tempeh Kale Salad and was not disappointed! Wow, I thought that they served a salad for all three people at our table. It was massive! And, it tasted really, really great. I am going to have to find out where there get the "soft kale" and "smoked Tempeh". What a delight. I ate myself silly then asked for DC (doggie carton) which provided another lunch for me. I do not know how they made the Kale fresh, but somehow soft. Ron (my partner) ordered a Teriyaki Tofu Paini. Being a somewhat vocal "picky eater" I was surprised I didn't hear another word from him until he finish at about half the time for me finsh my half eaten Kale (except a "um-um" here and there), then looked up and said "I think I am going to get one those desserts in the case". Not a word from our guest until he quickly finished and said "I am glad you suggested this place".
