Respond to Review of Great Sage
by DC Vegan
Review: I have been to Great Sage a number of times and seen a number of changes, including its conversion to an all-vegan menu (they used to offer dairy options), save for one or two items with honey. As it's nowhere near public transit, and I don't drive, I usually have to have someone drive me. I hosted an event for the local vegetarian society here today. The atmosphere has always been friendly and bright, but the food quality has varied. Today, the food was excellent. My boyfriend and I started with the Bavarian pretzel with dipping sauces, and it was fantastic. I got the Southwest Ranch "Bacon" Wrap (tempeh bacon) while he got the day's special, an open-faced "turkey" (crispy Tofurkey slices) sandwich with mashed potatoes and butternut squash gravy. There do seem to be a number of analogues, not that I mind, as long as there are plenty of other things to make it interesting--like a beautiful Black Beauty smoothie. The server did an excellent job with the party, including the splitting of checks. He was friendly, attentive, and very competent. If Great Sage were closer, I would probably want to go more often, even if it is expensive--I want to try that tofu dish. If you get up to Great Sage, don't forget to check out Roots market, Nest (a green gift store) and Bark (a green pets store) while you're there.
