Good Vegan Dish - Edit

Vegan enchiladas were amazing! I love when restaurants put thought into vegan dishes because usually they are a hit. Maybe they will offer more options in the future.

sadly one amazing vegan option - Edit

The enchiladas are so flavorful- beyond flavorful. The sauce is so rich and complex. The seitan was the perfect consistency. I wish the rice and bean side was bigger for the price, but it's a solid vegan option- your family will be jealous... Or all three may order the enchiladas. The kombucha cocktail was great too.
It's a little pricy here but you won't be disappointed. I'd say when you go, talk to the owner and tell him how amazing the vegan option is and how you would love for there to be more. The more we praise and inquire, the more apt owners will be to try to create another great thing.

Pros: organic fresh, great atmosphere

Cons: only one vegan menu item , expensive

Vegan friendly - Edit

While the vegan options are indeed clearly labeled on the menu...there is only 1, enchiladas. They use Daiya cheese and are very good. The Brussels sprouts appetizer is awesome and some of their salads can be made vegan. They made the mushroom gyro vegan for my wife, but used a vegan cheddar instead of feta and it was just OK. No vegan deserts here at all. Great beer list. Which they had more than one vegan entree though. Our service was average, wait 1 hour on a Friday night for a party of two...they don't take reservations but use the "Nowait" app.

YUM - Edit

We tried their vegan enchiladas with the soyrizo and vegan cheese. It was great! The beans and rice that came on the side did not have much flavor, but the enchiladas themselves were awesome. The vegan options were clearly marked on the menu, the prices were a little high, the atmosphere was casual but nice, and there were lots of beer options. Also, it looks like they source most everything locally, which is nice too.

Pros: Vegan clearly marked, Awesome enchiladas

Cons: Does serve meat

Amazing place--but get there early! - Edit

This is hands-down the best restaurant Plainfield has ever seen. The service is wonderful, and the food--all local and sustainable--is unbelievable! Vegan options are clearly labeled on the menu, and the kitchen is very accommodating. (For instance, I've ordered the Veggie sandwich a few times subbing the cheese out for extra hummus.)

Chef Dave is phenomenal. The enchiladas are always generously spiced and served with an incredible sauce, the stuffed pepper is sweet and smoky and served over a house-made vegan pasta that is out of this world. The ratatouille is surprisingly flavorful and topped with a generous, gooey helping of Daiya cheese!

The only problem: the restaurant is small and the incredible food and beer make it a very popular destination. Furthermore, they do not take reservations. Arrive early and/or prepare to drop by to put your name in and then shop downtown until your table is ready. I promise you, it's worth the wait!

Pros: newly rennovated, delightful waitstaff, outdoor seating

Cons: small, no reservations
