Respond to Review of CLOSED: Quiet Storm
Review: Ok, so I'm literally sitting in the Quietstorm while I'm writing this(most likely for the last time) me and my fiancé moved from New York City to Pittsburgh a short three months ago and have visited the Quietstorm nearly weekly since we arrived. The food is actually quite tasty but today I was shocked to find out that most of the food served at the Quietstorm is Nuked!! I mean, I'm not one of those vegans that thinks microwave will give you cancer (cell phones are more a threat) although I choose not to use them myself because any idiot that does any research at all can find plenty of information that supports the fact that microwave literally destroys most if not all the nutrients in food. Why eat it if it doesn't help you? Why eat it if you're vegan or vegetarian for health reason? Why support a so called restaurant that serves things you can make at home without a microwave?? It's just sad. I have worked as a vegan/vegetarian chef now for over 5 years in New York City, Massachusetts and Hawaii. I've also travelled extensively over the past 15 years and have enjoyed vegetarian fare around the country and NONE OF IT WAS MICROWAVED. The Quetstorm is never busy either, there just simply isn't a strong vegetarian community in western Pennsylvania, so there is no reason that the food need to be nuked when it can come out just as fast by other mean (not that it comes out in a timely fashion now ). The Owner, Jilly, seems to be incompetent in hiring people that actually know how to cook and it is very lame that they are using microwaves in there junk food restaurant without letting their unsuspecting customers know of it unless they get suspicious and ask like I, did hey!? What do you expect from a visually unhealthy womyn that isn't vegetarian herself, nothing less than a business person infringing on a growing market with no real interest in providing anything but a façade. Word to the wise.
