Respond to Review of 222 Veggie Vegan
Review: My husband and I finally ate here in July 2007 after months of longing. I suppose we might have built it up in our minds too much, but while it didn't meet our expectations, it was good, and we would go back. We had the avocado pomodoro for a starter, which was really nice and interesting, but rather heavy. We also ordered the garlic bread--but that didn't come until after our mains and we had to flag the waitress down to get it then. It's a tiny restaurant, but she was distracted by a party of 10. (FYI-the garlic bread wasn't worth the effort.) For our mains, I had the Stroganoff made with tofu, and my husband chose the 222 Gardens. While my Stroganoff was a generous meal and super tasty, the Gardens was ridiculously small--especially considering it was the most expensive dish on the menu! Just picture a line of little nibblies down the center of your plate, that's all it was. The menu really gave the impression that it would be a healthy amount of food, but that was not the case. Dessert was the tofu cheesecake and a chocolate cake--both on the healthy side of desserts. I wouldn't bother ordering the cheesecake again, as it's so easy to make a nice one at home. The main pro about 222 is that the cooking is healthy. So many times at veggie places you get served white rice, and other sorts of refined junk. I think our night at 222 was a case of ordering some of the wrong things, so maybe next time, we'll get luckier!
