Great space, Good food

Had read about this on HappyCow and finally got around to trying it. Here's my Mohawk Bend review.
Came for lunch with my family. We parked on the street out front, and since it was a weekday, there were plenty of seating inside. I was immediately impressive by the expansive space and the design of the interior - very artistic in a modern way. We chose to sit in the very back area surrounded by plants with tall ceiling dotted by pockets of sky roofs.
The menu clearly states which items are vegan (V) and which are not (NV) and which can be either (V/NV). I thought that was a very good way to label the dishes. Most everything was either vegetarian or vegan.
We ordered to share:
- "Fun Guy" mushroom pizza with vegan cheese: a fantastic and tasty medley of mushroom carmelized with onion over vegan Daiya cheddar cheese. Good size portion.
- Kid's "Marley meal" vegan: again Daiya cheddar cheese pizza with no other toppings, fries, and romaine lettuce salad in a lemon dressing. I didn't realize that pizza was the main component of this dish when I ordered it for my daughter. It was tasty, anyway, but my daughter did not eat her salad because it was too lemon-y, which I agreed. The salad tasted more like something adults would like and not children.
- Mediterranean veggie burger: a thick house-made falafel patty, a slice of tomato, and a white sauce (tahini?) nestled between buns. It was very tasty though more sauce would have made it more moist. The side of cabbage cole slaw that came with the burger was excellent; I could have eaten a big plate of that!
Overall, we had a very pleasant dining experience. Not too crowded on a weekday lunchtime. Seems like a place that could get super busy on weekend evenings.
great cole slaw, incredible space, good food
