Respond to Review of Le Potager du Marais
Review: I went here tonight to give a place a try, as I'm always looking for my next "favorite" vegetarian place. I read all the many reviews, and some were favorable, and some were not. I appreciate all that had written in with their experiences. I knew to make a reservation and to make an early one, so I wasn't eating my meal in someone's lap. I got there just as they opened, but because the waiter was late, it was another half an hour before any food was served to me. I was beyond famished, and a dog outside the restaurant was beginning to look delicious to me. I had the complete menu, which was 22.50 euros. I chose the "salade verte", which was greens, but no dressing (what is it with the French and the no dressing thing?) I was given a spray bottle of vinegar and another bottle of oil. Yuck. It's not difficult to make a delicious vinaigrette. Had I known it was going to be a tasteless salad, I would have chosen something else to eat. My quinoa burger was delicious. And the chocolate mousse was very chocolately, and I only ate half and shared the remaining with the friendly folk next to me. Another family came in, and I recommended the crostillant that I was enjoying. It came with a side salad (again, no dressing), a timbale of pureed sweet potato, and I chose the mushroom sauce. I could have inhaled three of these deep-fried morsels. Very friendly service, I was well tended to, as I spoke French to the handsome waiter, and translated for other people in the restaurant.
