Respond to Review of CLOSED: Karyn's on Green
Review: I wasn't sure about this place at first because of the boring looking menu, but after dining here I have to say I'm completely sold. The two of us ordered two appetizers, one entrée, and two sides to share: Crab sliders - very good, a great dish to start off our evening. Acorn squash - didn't interest me at all at the beginning, but ended up ordering it out of our waiter's recommendation. It was beautifully presented and truly delicious. Definitely the highlight of our meal. Roasted portobello - I know, I know... It does sound pretty ho-hum but was actually quite good. It was well prepared and hit all the right spots. Quinoa hush puppies - reminded me of the south Indian fried snack "vada" (both texture- and taste-wise). Really good paired up with the coconut-curry aioli. A must-order! Caramelized Brussels sprouts - doused in a mustard vinaigrette that lent these a piquant taste. I thought they were a little bit on the raw side and could have been cooked slightly longer. A decent side dish nonetheless. Portions were surprisingly generous. Factoring in the food quality, the attentive service, and the clean, trendy décor, the prices couldn't be more reasonable. Overall I felt that the starters and the sides outshined the main dishes, so I would recommend focusing on those. Also, they serve Dr. Cow cheeses (aka world's best vegan cheeses!) on their cheese plate, so go for it if you want to.
