Respond to Review of Blossom Restaurant
by DC Vegan
Review: My boyfriend and I were in town for the day on our way to Upstate NYC and chose to dine at Blossom. I would come here more often but 1) we don't get to NYC nearly as often as I would like, 2) there is a plethora of options for veg*ans in NYC, and 3) it is kind of expensive. But oh, is it worth it! We started our most recent visit with the Porcini Cigars. The cashew pesto in which they were served was divine, and I was thrilled when a pomegrante seed popped tartly in my mouth. We both got seitan for dinner; he got the Scaloppine, while I got the Port Wine Seitan. One bite of my entree, and I almost had a foodgasm, it was so good. The flavor was rich and hearty. The mashed potatoes were silky and creamy, and the spinach peeking out from underneath the potato/fried-onion construction was tender and garlicky. I tried a bite of his Scaloppine, and it was nice, but I wanted to concentrate on my dinner. For dessert, we shared the Lavendar Coconut Creme Brulee, and oh, it was heaven. Yes, I'm vegan, but I still love my desserts. I loved how the sugar crust melted on my tongue and the smooth and creamy custard was a perfect ending. My only complaint is that it is rather dark inside. I like ambiance as much as the next person, but I also want to be able to see the beautiful presentation of the dishes. A little more light on the subject, and I would have given it five stars. Still, whether you're vegan or not, this is a perfect date-night destination if you are looking for a good, romantic meal.
