Bring everyone. You'll love it, guaranteed.

Whether you're vegan, gluten-intolerant, kosher, organic or NOT, this place has pleased everyone I've taken. It took six months for me to convince my boyfriend to go, after he heard the words "Vegan" and "Organic", he was terrified. And he's a kosher vegetarian! If you have a preconceived notion that organic vegan food is flavorless and boring, this place will prove you wrong. Everything is perfectly spiced and seasoned. I try something new every-time, but the blackstrap barbecue, soy meatballs, and black olive seitan are favorites I recommend to even the most devout meat-eater. Here's the game plan: order the three-dish tapas to share, and if you're still hungry, try more, but be warned that the "protein" dishes may look small but they are deceptively filling and spicy. Once you have the tapas, make sure you have room for dessert, and order their famous and highly recommended brownie sundae - vegan, organic, and gluten-free, you won't believe it once you taste it. The soy ice "cream" is - how can I describe it? It surpasses the real deal in light, delicious, sweet, creaminess!!! Every bite is amazing. It can run a little pricey, but you won't be hungry if you share three tapas and the sundae between two people. The art on the walls changes all the time, the music ranges from modern alternative to Beatles and is always fun, and the lighting is eclectic and perfectly romantic. Bring your pickiest eater, your special someone, and that person who just went "organic". Bring everyone. You'll love it, guaranteed.
