Respond to Review of CLOSED: Horizons
Review: Wow, finally, a really fine vegan restaurant for downtown Philadelphia. I've been there three times in one month, and will return often. I enjoyed the low lighting in there, so I could kiss my food before each bite, telling it, "thanks for being so yummy". OK, so my date was laughing his head off watching me do this. We shared the baked seitan and the lemon/peppered tofu. Yes, the prices are high, but if you cook, you can appreciate all the many flavors, sauces, crunchy/salty accompaniments that make each bite a savory trip to outer space. Very time-consuming and tedious to make fine vegan fare. I can appreciate all the work involved with the food. Even after dinner was over, burping it back up (I know, ick) was another taste treat. The smoky and chewy flavor of the seitan was marvelous. Even though I stopped eating meat 16 years ago, I still miss that chewy/smoky meat taste. A pan-fried portabello mushroom doesn't quite cut it. I also loved the blueberry cheesecake for dessert. Nice wait staff, you can tell they are proud of the food they bring out of the kitchen. Now if all meat-eaters could taste how good food is without the dead animal. I wish we had a Horizons out on the Main Line. You should call for reservations, as one time we didn't have one, and ended up eating at the bar, which was fine, but not as romantic. And I couldn't kiss my food as much.
