Respond to Review of CLOSED: Horizons
Review: The best restaurant in the country. I have never been disappointed by a meal here and having been coming for years. I wish I could say the same about Candle 79, Blossom, Millennium, and Ubuntu, some of its upscale vegetarian counterparts, where the food has either been bland, too tough, or derivative on many occasions . The food at Horizons is always extremely fresh and truly inventive in both flavor and technique. It's incredible from the warm, melt-in your-mouth foccacia served to each table with the daily infused olive oil to the desserts (and on that note, cheesecakes are a must-have; I still dream about the white chocolate-lavender slice I had two summers ago). All the spices and textures always complement each other so well. The atmosphere is always pleasant and quiet but never pretentious or stuffy, so you can enjoy the food, conversation, and vegan cocktails made with fresh fruit juices and organic ingredients. This restaurant is truly on a different level from its competition and I would recommend it to everyone. The only thing I could possibly complain about is that occasionally the service is a bit iffy: sometimes it can be slow (but what restaurant doesn't have this problem?) and sometimes the servers are a bit weird/inexperienced/undertrained. It's never been enough to detract from a meal and leave me unsatisfied with my visit. The food is just that good (and the services has never really been BAD, per se, just not the greatest). Even the staunchest omnivores I've brought here have walked away full-stomached and raving (in a good way).
