Respond to Review of Green Vegetarian Cuisine - Downtown
by Vegetariansolutions

Review: I used this site to find Green Vegetarian because I was afraid, as a vegan, of being in a new place for a three-day convention and having a hard time to find vegan food. I headed straight from my hotel after check-in to have a late lunch/early dinner at Green, not expecting it to be better than the restaurants here in Atlanta. What a menu! I had trouble deciding (having only one stomach), but opted for the Buffalo Tofu fingers and Green burger. I blame my desire to take advantage of the abudant menu, their wonderful service, and the delicious food for what happened next: I returned the next day at lunch to try the Popcorn Tofu Poboy and loved it so much I ordered dinner to go (the Neatloaf, mashed potatoes, broccoli salad). I was so impressed, I left the conference during a break the next day and took a taxi BACK to the restaurant for breakfast (Tofu scramble and tofu-chorizo breakfast taco)! Then, knowing full well that Riverwalk is full of restaurants awaiting my tourist dollars, I STILL couldn't help myself--and ordered, to-go dinner for that night (Cici's stirfry) AND breakfast for my final day (tofu scrambler again--it was worth duplicating the experience)! I have travelled all over the world and LOVE trying new vegetarian restaurants (it's almost the REASON I travel, other than meeting new like-minded friends). I can honestly say that I have NEVER before eaten ALL meals for three days from the same restaurant--but who could blame me? I really enjoyed the food, stayed within my per diem budget for a LOT of heaping portions,felt "at home" with the owners (it's a family-run business and I felt so welcome!), AND loved to see the way that these people are living the dream with their environmental design/sustainable power, products, packaging/spreading vegetarianism. I couldn't help but invest (my dining dollars) to support what is the most important thing to me: "walk the talk". My ONLY complaint?...This restaurant is in Texas and I live in Georgia and they don't deliver that far!!! I challenge anyone to top my three-day, all-meals, feeding frenzy at Green!! ;) I hope you love it as much as I did. Thanks to Edlyn and Mike--I hope we cross paths again!
