Respond to Review of CLOSED: Horizons
Review: I cajole everyone I know into going here, because so many people think vegan eating is joyless. At Horizons, it is an art and a celebration of life and peace and flavor and creativity. One example -- we ordered the Jamaican Jerk Seitan for an appetizer. My boyfriend took his first bite and looked at me incredulously with joy on his face, knowing it would blow my mind with flavor, and it did. I am crazy for mushrooms, and the dish that featured them prepared 4 different ways was heavenly. It even had a tiny shepherd's pie with mushrooms on the bottom. He had the Cauliflower Mac, which mimics the comfort of macaroni and cheese, a new dish for them. But when your partner is a vegetarian too, you can just switch plates the whole time. :-) We really enjoyed tasting the wines by the glass, many organic, and our waiter made excellent recommendations. The staff is very well-trained and enthusiastic about the food. It makes me fantasize about working in a vegan eatery. As a coffee fanatic, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the loose teas. The blueberry rooibos tasted so good that I am now after a teapot of my own. We have the Horizons cookbook and have made quite a few dishes. It is filled with good advice and cool stories of how Kate and Rich get their food ideas. I love that there is a vegan restaurant so good that people have to make reservations far in advance. Maybe someday people will go out for vegan like they do for sushi. I cannot believe people complain about the prices. They are right in line with other nice restaurants and probably lower, with all entrees under $20. Long live Horizons! Bravo Kate and Rich!
