I went to this location when it was under the old name and still remember the tasty sandwich I had there 7 years ago. Under the new name, Escape is "veggie-centric" meaning mostly veg*n, but serves fish. The menu states that they will make any dish vegan if they can upon request.
Everything that is vegan is labeled w/ a ying-yang symbol.
The sandwich I ordered, Tofu Vietnamese Hero, was labeled vegan, but was served to me w/ a side of mayo. It looked like regular mayo, so I asked and it was. The sandwich was very dry, though the tofu had a nice flavor. My SO ordered Ranchero Tostadas, which was not labeled vegan, but asked for it to be vegan (which meant leaving off the cheese.) His dish was beautifully prepared w/ finely chopped veggies, avocado, black beans, fresh greens. He devoured it.
For dessert, they had two vegan options. Carrot cake and chocolate mousse. We got the mousse, and it was decadently thick and rich.
Though I wasn't excited about my selection, my SO was and there was several interesting sounding dishes I would have liked to try if we would have been in the area longer. We will definitely go back the next time we venture to Aspen.
