Respond to Review of CLOSED: Veggie Planet
Review: Maybe I'm spoiled by the vegan pizza at the Nice Slice in Providence, but I don't think that the pizzas at Veggie Planet are that great. I like a lot of flavor and spice, and the pizzas and their other vegan dishes here have tasted pretty bland to me. I did go to a cool Boston Vegetarian Society event here around Valentine's Day, though. Didi Emmonds cooked a four-course prix-fixe vegan meal for the event. She's not normally the chef at Veggie Planet, however... She was only there to cook for the special meal (when the restaurant was closed to the public). Basically, the recipes at Veggie Planet (pizza or otherwise) taste like they were cooked from a recipe created in the early stages of 1960's-1970's hippie veganism. They would benefit from using more and varied ingredients and spices. An A+ for effort, though!
