Too busy being cool to actually make good food..

As a vegan who has eaten at veg-restaurants all across the country, I have to say how terribly disappointed I am with The Seed. I was excited to finally have a vegetarian restaurant in town, but this was a let down.
The menu is small and limited. I got the Cuban - which turned out to be 2 dry slabs of seitan on a white bread roll, sprayed with yellow mustard and topped with two pickle slices... Seriously? I could have made something better at home and not paid 10 dollars for it. Do something creative - don't just slap some fake meat on a piece of white bread with some chips on the side and call it a meal! This sort of behavior would get you run out of business in any major city like Philly, New York, Portland, or Chicago.
I'm giving them 2 stars, which is one star more than I would, because I like their "vibe" - it's hip, inclusive, employee-owned. But, despite its good intentions, The Seed needs to seriously reexamine their menu and culinary methods.
