We had a great dinner at Horizons restaurant (6th & South) last weekend. This is actual gourmet vegan cooking. The food is as good as non-veg restaurants (better than Bliss, not quite as good as Matyson). They do a great job of interesting sides with lots of flavors and unusual ingredients. The chilled cucumber avocado soup was very herby, almost like a raita. The tamarind-glazed seitan was all about the fabulous glaze, and came over a mashed root vegetable I'd never heard of, with a Brazilian stew. Our non-veg friend loved the sopa de tortilla. The Mexican chocolate torte with peanut butter ice cream was excellent - very thick and rich. Oh, they also had some interesting Belgian beers in bottles and Celis White on tap.
All in all, I highly recommend this place. I was happy to see they are doing well (they were full all evening). Thank you.
