Respond to Review of True Bistro
Review: Finally a vegan restaurant in (near) Boston for more of a fine dining experience. The owners were determined to open a place like that, including a liquor license. The interior is very simple: done in black and white with pale gray walls. We were at a soft opening, so things were still rough around the edges. We had the parsnip cream soup, which was very good; and a mesclun salad with Marcona almonds (Love them!) and a perfectly applied lemon-caper dressing. We knew several people who were there at the same time. The arugula salad with pomogranate looked beautiful and got a great review. We ordered seitan/veg burgers. They didn't have it yet, but will be using Iggy's bread which will support these slightly messy burgers really well. Mine was caramelized onion and ranch dressing. My husband had avocado and Daiya cheese. Both were delicious. The fries were not up to par, lacking the real crunch and saltiness of a great fry. Friends gave big thumbs up to their choices: mushroom tacos, sausage and pesto gemelli pasta, the quiche and a couple of other sandwiches. We look forward to going back for dinner where there are some far more sophisticated options. The chef once worked at Millenium, so it's pretty promising! Again, I don't want to dwell on some service problems as it was a very crowded special event. Hopefully those will be all worked out as True opens normally. I hope we can upgrade to 5 cows soon.
