VegiTerranean 5/23

We went out for dinner again to VegiTerranean and had a fabulous time, possibly the best vegan restaurant meal we've eaten. The trick is to go off the menu and head right for the specials, as the dishes really shine creatively (and often do not contain the stunt meat). Kudos to Chef Scot Jones and his crew!

We started with a Pizza (thin crust, w/marinara, olives, artichokes) and Rosemary Fries (no pics, sorry)

For dinner the kids each had the appetizer special of Morel Mushrooms, Biscuits and Gravy, with some corn and pearl onions thrown in for good measure. It was large enough to be served as an entree for them. Our son loves morels and after having them Wednesday, he jumped on the chance to eat them again. They were both very happy with their choices.

Liz had the polenta with grilled vegetables (eggplant, peppers, onions, asparagus) and a red pepper coulis.

I had the Risotto Cakes and Roasted Red and Yellow Peppers on bed of Spinach -- great flavors and a huge portion!

The (huge) cupcake was a tad dry -- but it's definitely a two person dessert.

The mousse flavor was spot on, but just a wee bit grainy with the mouthfeel...
