Review: I came with high expectations, I was looking forward to some gourmet vegan dining after being in other cities with the more typical grain-and-veggie-stew fare, and I was not disappointed. I ordered the Pistachio & Pepper Dusted Tofu and it was scrumptious, the lemon truffle emulsion adding such a nice flavor. My spouse - how could he with so many exciting, different, menu items? - ordered the lasagna. It was good but he didn't seem as excited as I was. Well, that's what you get for ordering something that lots of places make. We had two amazing desserts: the cheesecake and the Tiramisu. Sooo good! I often skip dessert, because it has to be really special to go for it. Even vegan has calories (they do use sugar, and the tiramisu was made with coconut cream). These were worth every calorie. But the mishap - oh boy! The tables for two are close together. A woman at the table next to me knocked over her wine glass - it would be red wine - and it splashed all over me, staining my cream color cardigan, a salmon colored top, my pants, my spouse's shirt. What a mess! The waitress tried to find a laundry stick, but couldn't, so she brought me a bottle of sparkling water, which I did enjoy drinking the rest of after trying to use the non-absorbent cloth napkin and then some paper towels to clean my clothes, but there were too many stains and I didn't feel like being so wet, and it didn't work, anyway. So I gave up until I got home and worked very hard at getting most of the stains out, but I still have a stubborn spot on my cardigan. The waitress offered us a dessert on the house (which is why we had two instead of a shared dessert), but they should have offered some greater compensation for having my clothes almost ruined, and no guarantee that I wouldn't have a rather expensive loss. True, the restaurant isn't the one who knocked over the wine, but I still think that they should take some responsibility for their customers' clumsiness. I won't let it ruin my review of the food. The ambiance was also pleasant, with some live music part of the time.
