All the people were so nice and attentive. Great food. Good drinks and good ambiance. They have gluten and soy free options. The three cheeses were my favorite. I have tried this starter and different restaurants but this is the winner!
This restaurant is vegetarian, gluten free, and asks you if you have any other dietary restrictions. Super cool they do this, but as a bread-eating, meat lover, was a little too pricey for me.
This is the best plant based gourmet food in the country.
