What does Brooklyn have to do with Philadelphia ? [moved from Philadelphia board]

Delucacheesemonger | Jun 26, 201505:31 AM

In response to those who love Vedge, there is a distant alternative that is not vegan, even cheats on vegetarian with some stocks, and is beyond amazing.
Went last night in Brooklyn after the Sherryfast wine tasting in the West Village.
Place is Semilla, not to be confused with the Parisian restaurant of the same name, just off Williamsburg bridge. Place has @14 seats, serves a chef's choice meal of 8-9 courses for $ 75, has a great odd wine list.
Not one course was a miss ranging from fresh pea falafel, which was truly a wow to a cabbage wrapped rice dish with the most perfectly cooked rice ever, not an easy thing to do.
What l had does not matter as the menu changes often as the supplies do, but the tristar strawberry and beet dessert dish was spectacular.
As said meat was not missed by our party at all.
As a bonus the staff was warm, smart, clever, and very helpful.
This is worth a detour.
l will return soon.
