Respond to Review of Eden's Vegetarian Dining and Catering
Review: On our way up 95, I happened to check for the off-chance that I might find a vegetarian restaurant on the way. I was surprised to learn of Eden's as I had never heard of Smithfield before. Luckily, it's right off of exit 90 or 93 on I-95. It was actually pretty easy to find. Alex (who along with his wife seems to run everything and wait on tables) greeted us when we walked in and explained a bit of what food they had and his philosophy. I guess during the week they have a menu but on Sunday there were a couple specials, of which we were informed. I ordered the BBQ "ribs" and my husband had the curry "chicken", which came with rice and beans, mixed greens, a delicious salad and fresh-baked foccia bread. The BBQ Ribs are out-of-this-world and the portions are generous, and the prices are very reasonable. We were completely stuffed and satisfied all the way home to Delaware. The house raspberry vinaigrette is very light and fresh, and everything was perfectly prepared. The herbal iced tea is also delicious. I couldn't find one fault with the restaurant. It's worth a little out of the way trip or advanced planning if you're heading through on 95 to stop at Eden's, and it's nice to help support wonderful people making delicious veggie food in the heart of pork country. Also, the restaurant is housed in a very elegant restored Victorian house--nice atmosphere.
