After two weeks of eating like we would never see food again on a very delicious trip to india, my girlfriend and I have decided to start 2009 off with a period of abstention from animal products.
Cooking at home has been challengeing but rather rewarding, but i would like to be able to go out every once in a while. Looking for your recommendations for places that can more than accomodate vegans, and specific ideas for what you would order. Ive never been to ecopolitan but it seems a bit too crunchy (i know, right, now im getting absurd, i want vegan friendly but not crazy hippy). Cafe Agri's menu seems pretty blah (the meat and dairy free items all leaned toward the unappealing crunchy) and generaly like things i could cook at home, but dont because they just dont entice.
Anywhere with good food, bruch/lunch included, even if its just a menu item or two, would be appreciated. Id also be curious to hear from people who have had experiences working with servers/cooks in places that can cater to, but dont generally serve, vegans.
