Respond to Review of Walnut Grille
Review: We finally got out to Newton to try WG. It was quite busy, so we sat at the bar and ordered apps waiting for a table to free up. That was fine except the view behind the bar was a bit grubby--boxes of supplies and junk stacked up. We ordered the "veg-pops," the soy chicken fingers and a salad. I asked someone about the ingredients of the lollipops and another employee quickly came over and gave me a different list and admitted the first girl was all wrong. People, if you don't know something, say so, don't make it up! The lollipops were really yummy, the Farmer's salad was very good, but the chicken fingers are just patties cut into strips and ours were actually soggy. But things got way better. We moved our apps and drinks to a table and ordered dinner. I absolutely loved my grainloaf, the tempeh Bolognese was amazing! It should come with bread and they brought me some when asked. My husband got Gardein and loved it. Our friend got Veg Lasagne; he's an omnivore and he loved it. Portions were generous. I took some home. I had told the waitress I knew I wanted the chocolate souffle. And BAM, just as the dinner plates were picked up, they bring it to me. I'm like WHOA, no one ever took a dessert order from the other two people, who, as it turns out wanted the souffle as well. So she took it back and after a while, we all got them. The flavor was amazing and we all thought it was awesome. But the inside was totally gooey, like a lava cake. So I don't know if ours were underdone, or they are just not true souffles. Still, it was so good, and it comes with some vanilla ice cream which I slathered with the chocolate from the center. So, yes a few mis-steps, but still one of the best vegan meals I've had in Boston. The only "No" of the night are the chicken fingers.
