Respond to Review of CLOSED: Karyn's on Green
by SynthVegan

Review: Hands down best new Vegan spot in Chicago to this day! So my friend and I decided to try Karyn's on Green last night, but when we drove by we weren't sure we were dressed up enough. Well we decided to go in anyway and as it turns out, it doesn't matter how you're dressed - all of the employees were so friendly when we walked in too. The decor is amazing and the location is huge...shall I say the decor is amazing again? Because it is! This is a GREAT spot to take anyone on a date or a friend to a nice diner without the terribly high prices. We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the prices, although they're not super cheap, the main courses averaged around $14. The food was amazing and presented nicely (and fancy-like), here's what we got:: "Crab Cakes" (appetizer): These were amazing and that's coming from someone that doesn't like crab or imitation crab. You get two crab cakes, sauteed spinach, and mustard sauce with this appetizer. "Fried Chicken Legs" (my meal): This entree is like vegan heaven; the "chicken" legs have a consistency that closely resembles the real deal (mind you I haven't had chicken in over 20 years, but I'd like to think I remember the consistency). This dish is served with sweet potato hash (I substituted this for the "Baked Mac & Cheese"), Swiss chard (with little sausage bits), and Kentucky Bourbon barbecue sauce. "Baked Mac & Cheese" (my side): This was good, but I thought it was bland overall. It tasted much better when I added a lot of salt to it. The thing that differentiated this dish from other vegan mac & cheese dishes it that it had cheese that melts on it, nice. "BBQ Bacon Meatloaf" (my non-vegan friend's meal): This is served with horseradish roasted fingerlings, escarole, and Kansas City BBQ sauce. My friend absolutely loved this dish and proceeded to talked about it the whole ride home. I had a taste of this at the restaurant and agree that it was very good. "Chocolate Terrine" (dessert): This comes with compressed pear, salted cashew mousse, raspberry sorbet, and cocoa nibs. Needless to say, this dish was mind blowing. The sorbet tasted homemade too, it was so good! Overall this place gets an A+ in my book; I will surely bring all of my friends here, vegan or not. :)
