Respond to Review of Angelica Kitchen
Review: We stopped in on a Sunday night; it was crowded but not extremely so. Our waitress was super nice and helpful, but not hovering! We got the special yukon gold potato appetizer, which sounded better than it was, even though it was very good--just not dazzling. The veggie "sushi" was SO good. It's not very sushi-like, just awesome. We both got the special dinners. One was a tofu-mushroom mixture in handmade phyllo, with fresh green beans. It was fantastic. It seemed like everyone in the place was ordering it. The other was their homemade tempeh in a spicy sauce. I like tempeh, and theirs was several notches better than any I've had. The sides were abundant: gorgeous steamed broccoli, roasted turnip, sweet potato sauce and one other I can't recall. My husband got the banana cake with peanut butter frosting. I'm a PB nut, so I swiped a bit of frosting and thought it was tofu-y. I am not a fan of tofu-y frosting or puddings. My blood orange pie had a nice flavor and a substantial crumb crust that I really liked. The best thing is you bring your own alcohol, with no pouring fee! I think the prices are very reasonable for what you get. Yes, it's not convenient that you have to remember to get cash before you go, but I admire their refusal to engage with the banking system which does keep costs down. How can people complain about a place where you can get an entree for $12 in NYC?
