Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Green Gourmet
Review: Went there for lunch after the Morikami Gardens and we were so pleasantly surprised. The staff was very helpful and pointed out all the vegan dishes. The iced tea was delicious as was the lasagne, and the chef was happy to make the falafel wrap with tahini instead of tzatziki for us. The kale salad was so good, which is not hard to do, and yet almost nobody else seems to succeed with kale salad. I find that so many vegan places focus their meals on faux meat - tofu, tempeh, gardein, whatever, but to find a meal that is all about the vegetables is a rare treat. Such a pleasant surprise to have such a tasty, healthy lunch (low sodium, local, organic) and such fantastic service. Our waiter was a young guy, didn't catch his name, but he was great even during a busy time.
