Respond to Review of Vedge

Review: First, let's talk about the 450lb gorilla in the room....Yes, as mentioned in other reviews the portions are small. They tell you that up front and as long as you approach your menu choices with the right attitude, you'll leave the restaurant happy and fully satiated. Located in central Philly, this restaurant was within walking distance of my hotel. It was a quick 5 minute walk to Vegan Restaurant Paradise. My server, Keren was super enthusiastic and helpful in helping me make my menu choices. On her recommendation I ordered the Candy Onion Tart "Pisaladiere",Roasted Miatake Mushroom with Celery Root Fritter accompanied by Shaved Grilled Brussels Sprouts. The onion tart was presented beautifully on a piece of slate and the complex interplay of the subtle flavours in the Potato leek salad that accompanied it were spectacular. The tart itself was sweet, yet tangy in a light pastry cup. The main course Mushrooms were roasted beautifully and the celery root fritter was spectacular. The real star of the show for me was the grilled, shaved, brussels sprouts. They were cooked to perfection and accented with a lovely smoked mustard sauce. The meal was finished by a strawberry sorrel bread pudding with saffron ice cream. The strawberries were perfectly accented by the sorrel and the ice cream had the most delicate flavor with a light saffron finish on the palate. Total cost $42.12. So that proves you can have a filling delicious meal even though the portons appear small! This is true fine dining in the purest sense. The price is not unreasonable for the quality of cuisine here. It was the most inspiring veg meal I've ever had and Vedge is the main reason I will return to Philadelphia from my home in Canada with my family soon.
