Respond to Review of CLOSED: V Note

Review: See the full review and pics at Marty's Flying Vegan Review I took a walk over to V-Note this summer but the opening date had been set back and so I was really looking forward to eating here.

The combination with the tarter sauce was indeed a memory of another dining era in my life. Very nice dish. Crab Cakes Blend of hiziki seaweed, tofu, herbs and spices with a tartar sauce $10 This dish wasn't trying to be anything other than delicious.
