    Great mixology and riffs on the classics; small plates like wild mushrooms or chorizo sliders are sure to please, and the meat substitutes are amazing! Karyn is pleasant in demeanor and on the eyes ;)

    Roasted Portobello entree was yummy!! Definitely get warm apple crisp- great finish to a good meal! waitress said the cheesecake has a misleading title- oh and brussel sprouts have a mustardy bite!

    Creations, such as pizza made of tortillas topped with vegan cheese or pasta made from zucchini will please anyone. The cocktails and alcohol-free “elixirs,” take vegan dining up a notch. Read more

    Beautiful venue. Perfect for a date. We went on Valentine's Day so things were a bit off because they were so busy. Inventive food with a soul

    Chicago's quintessential vegan restaurant. One look at the amazingly ageless Karyn Calabrese and even the most fanatical meat eater will start to question if they should go raw.

    "Chorizo sliders" make delicious use of seitan mixed w/ spicy vegan chipotle aioli — full of chorizo taste, w/out the sausage's grease. They're served on sturdy rolls w/ vegan cheese & tomato jam. Read more

    Great addition to the neighborhood. Karyn is often there to ensure you're happy with the food and service. Who knew that vegetarian/vegan could be so good!

    Bummer that the steak fries and curry are no longer gluten free. Two of my faves here. Making rolls still outstanding
