Respond to Review of Great Sage
Review: Great Sage is the nicest vegetarian restaurant I've been to in Maryland, both in terms of food quality and atmosphere. Here's a link to their menu: http://www.great-sage.com/Menu.html Their menu is well-labelled not only as to what is vegan, what is not, and what can be veganized, but also what is gluten free, soy free, etc. Most of the food is quite good, although there are a few items that are so-so. I highly recommend their Indian Vegetable Cakes which come with a variety of delicious items as well as the cakes, including cashew spinach, mango date chutney, and a rice pilaf. Also, I like their Americana, a delicious vegan interpretation of meatloaf, (served with mashed potatoes and gravy if you order it at dinnertime.) On their lunch menu, I highly recommend the BBQ seitan. Also, my omni partner finds their vegetarian ruben to be the second-best vegetarian ruben he's ever had. Their Caesar salad, without the cheese, is one of the best vegan Caesar salads I've had anywhere. And their must-have sinfully delicious dessert is their lava cake, better with their vanilla soy ice cream than their rice ice cream. We also like their chocolate mint shake. :-) One disappointing menu on the menu is the Thai stir fry, which has a very thin, weak, green curry. Their southwestern burger is okay, but not great. The wait staff is quite good on weekend evenings, but often new and inexperienced at lunch time on week days. Note that they sometimes run out of items, particularly their Americana. Also, they are quite good about making substitutions if, for example, you want something instead of the potato chips offered with one dish or the vegetable offered with another.
