Respond to Review of Gentle Gourmet Cafe
by Dynamic Duo
Review: We really enjoyed Gentle Gourmet. We had the quinoa and lentil salad which was wonderful and a portobello dish that also had other vegetables and sweet potatoes. Even though we are not usually portobello fans we both loved it. We also had the beignets which are basically deep fried fake cheese balls. One of us (the husband) loved them because he loves cheesy things and the other (the wife) didn't - because she loves to keep things lowfat. So take it for what you will. The fake cheese they use is made of "oils" but no soy - so that was good for us because we have soy allergies - but not so good because it seemed processed (guess which of us is concerned with the processed part :)) Speaking of soy, we were a little limited on the menu because they do use a lot of soy, but there was plenty for us to eat and we were very satisfied. The atmosphere is ok but not great (could use a little lower lighting for the dinner crowd) and it is BYOB, but without a charge, so be sure to bring your own bottle of wine - or get one at the nearby grocery store if you want wine. We recommend you try Gentle Gourmet when in Paris!
