Respond to Review of CLOSED: Horizons
Review: LOVE this place. Finally a taste of fine-dining menu items without all the horror of meat. EVERYTHING is vegan!!! I brought non-vegan family along, and they found things they liked. Decor was pleasant. Staff was helpful, though a bit slower service last time I was in. Location is convenient, walking distance from all the action of South Street. Menu was very extensive. Wait staff VERY understanding of vegan diners -- what a nice change from other restaurants! :-) The killer is the price. The four of us had lunch dishes and I think an appetizer or two and it was over $150. While I understand they're catering to a specialty audience and have the higher overhead of being in Philly, their prices are out of line with similar [non-vegan] restaurants in the area. We were joking that I guess only the very rich can afford to be vegans in Philly. It is not huge, so be sure to get reservations if you're coming at peak dining times. They did have limited outdoor seating last time I was there. It is a must-see. I'd visit more than 1-2x a year, if they offered more affordable options. Does not have its own parking lot, but there are lots within walking distance. Tip: if you don't mind walking a few blocks, there is a wonderful Whole Foods Market on South Street nearby.
