Welcome back to DC EL!!!!

Hello Everlasting Life, and thank you for coming back to the District! In fact, thank you for coming back to a location that is RIGHT on the Metro! Thank you for coming back right near where other vegan-friendly places are located and for being the standout 100% vegan restaurant! YES!
Ok, that's enough of that. The people are awesome and nice, there's a bar, high ceilings, concrete floors, some artwork, modern space and trendy restaurant feel. It's better than the old one in decor and ambiance. Good for food or for a date for those who aren't veg yet…. :)
As for the food - c'mon, y'all know what to expect. They may be shaking out the kinks as they take over this space, but you know it's good. YES, it's good.
Order some sides only like mac and cheese or collards greens for about $10, or 3 for $12… or throw in some sides to an entree for $15 or just one side for a bit less. The entrees are bbq, country fried, fish-like meat substitutes that are battered or stewed. Quite tasty, yes. The sides are amazing, and I can't wait to go back again.
Save room for dessert, because they have their own desserts - or from local bakeries… but soon, they should have a vegan bakery about ½ mile away! The coconut cake was a bit crumbly but the chocolate cake with vanilla frosting was standard fare. For now, dessert Tuesdays gets you dessert for $5, which is $1 off most slices (cheesecake and triple chocolate too).
They say soon they will have brunch on the weekends, but just wait for it.
I would love to see some more choices, but I imagine that'll happen soon enough - maybe some salads, some veggie entrees, and… more dessert?! Rotate in some new sides maybe…. like sweet potatoes, squashes (they have a carrot salad)… add in a few more raw choices? Who cares though, I love them!
Although the price is a bit high, I understand why, and for being 100% vegan and Everlasting Life, I will pay it! Yay! Can't wait to go back!
