Had a very enjoyable dinner at Millennium Sat night. For those who don't know, it's an upscalish vegan place. Intrestingly, it is inside a Howard
Johnson motel, with which it shares a lobby, which makes for very interesting, and unexpected, people watching while waiting for a table.

There are two dining rooms - the front looking quite nice, with only a handful of tables. The back room, where we sat, was not terribly attractive.

The food ranged from good to excellent. As I am a hardcore carnivore, I think the key to veggie restaurants is to avoid the items whish "should" have animal products in them. I did so, ordering the raw plate appetizer (called "Oyster Mushrooms on the Half Shell"). This was basically a salad, with Belgian endive, avocado, oyster mushrooms and sea vegetables, all in a horseradish-dill-cashew crème. Truly an excellent dish. For an entree, I had the "Beggar's purse, with polenta, truffled white bean & roasted corn ragout wrapped in phyllo. This was very good. My girlfriend had less luck with her Grilled Rosemay Polenta appetizer and Morel & Porcini Stroganoff which sufferered noticeable from the lack of egg in the noodles, but both dishes were certainly tasty.

The waitstaff could not have been more pleasant and made helped to make it an overall very pleasant experience. We will likely go back.
