Vee Vee - a mixed bag.

I went to Vee Vee last night for the first time with high hopes of really liking this place. I like the vegetarian (even vegan) influences on the menu and the warm room which only remotely resembled dear old departed Cha Fahn. In short - a mixed bag.

Highlights were the appetizers - a wonderful, flavorful Tuscan bean soup with bread. Thick enough to eat with a fork, packed with flavor and filling without ruining the appetite for a main course. The beans and spinach were cooked in just right and the bread just melted into the dish. perfect for the weather we've been having. The beet salad is a veggie take on a Waldorf - green goddess dressing, celery, apples, walnuts and and all. The components were nice and tasty, but the salad was miniscule and the walnuts seemed to be thrown in at the end instead of fully incorporated.

The real drawbacks were the main dishes. The carrot and parsnip curry lacked the necessary flavor that a dish like this requires. There was one note to it - a mild curry flavor - that tasted bland after a few bites. The butternut squash enchiladas were a step up, but the spicy tastiness of the butternut squash flavor overpowered the blander elements of the rest of the dish - a flour tortilla, bland cheese, odd beans.

I don't want to write a place off because of one off night, but I haven't seen much about Vee Vee on CH. Any other experiences?
