Once again, I'm thankful I don't live in DC. If I lived in walking distance, I would not only be the fattest vegan on the planet, but the poorest as well because I would eat here every day.
We went here yesterday after 8pm so it wasn't very crowded. Our waitress was super friendly and polite.
My fiancé and I ordered the Nachos Con Queso (not Grande) and they were so authentic tasting and filling. The cheese sauce is to die for, my non vegan/vegetarian fiancé said he would never know that this place was even vegan ("you could just bring someone here and they'd have no idea!") - we were fighting over the last nacho.
He got the pesto chicken and I got the turkey club and we both split a side of macaroni and cheese - because I am insistent on finding great vegan mac 'n' cheese. You can probably guess we ended up with "to go" boxes for half of everything we ordered. I read some reviews about the mac 'n' cheese being too salty so I braced myself to try it, but either I'm immune to the saltiness or they had a bad batch, so I'm not sure.
Since I hate driving into DC, I used that as an excuse to get dessert to go and got raw chocolate cheesecake and a chocolate cupcake. I was super full, but got stuck in dead stop construction traffic on 66W at 10:30 AT NIGHT, so I tasted the cupcake (fiancé: "are you serious right now?") and it was SO rich, if you love chocolate, you'll love this. Since it has only been 12 hours that I was last at the restaurant I haven't tried the cheesecake, but how can one go wrong on cheesecake?
I also got the Berry Berry Margarita. They didn't short me on the alcohol, but it didn't taste like cheap tequila either so that was super.
I made sure to drop 57 hints that my birthday should be here; regardless that it's more than 6 months away.
Worth mentioning: Parking = not awesome. Not an issue of Cafe Green since it's a DC wide situation, so it didn't impact my review of the restaurant or anything.
So Tasty, Food Selection, Outstanding Service
