Respond to Review of Brillobox
Review: Brillobox has a lot of vegetarian and vegan choices on the menu, and the vegetarian ones can generally be made vegan. When I was last there, they had a vegetarian/vegan special every Sunday evening. By that I mean it was a low-cost non-regular menu choice that was actually vegan, but came automatically with some cheese on the top for no reason unless you requested it be vegan. That said, on the topic of requesting it be vegan, when I finally made it in to get this special, I asked the bartender if it was vegetarian or vegan and he said it could be made vegan. So I asked, "What do you do to make it vegan?" because I wanted to know if it was a significant enough change to make it more worthwhile to just order an already-vegan item off the menu. His answer? "You know, a lot of vegans come here." OK, rude awful hipster bartender. Please go eff yourself now. It really made me hate this bar, Pittsburgh, and planet Earth. The real answer was, "We sprinkle nutritional yeast on instead of dairy cheese," but I actually never got that straight answer out of him. It's one of these things that somehow still sticks with me. I mean, I moved to the San Francisco bay area and I never have to see the awful gray slush of the 'burgh again, but I still cringe to think of that horrible bartender and his jerk beard. OK, maybe I'm overreacting. Point is, pretty nice vegan food for a bar.
