Oh, I am so tired tonight.
I take pictures pretty much anytime I go out to eat, but I don’t always get to use them. Mostly because I don’t blog enough, but that’s for another time.
Some of you might know that I blog for the local paper around here on their Small Bites blog, where I write the I Eat Plants column, which I took over from JL of JL Goes Vegan when she moved away from NY last year. One of the place I’ve written about on more than one occasion is Sweet Grass Grill in Tarrytown. I go there a bit more often than I do most other places. I don’t about them over on I Eat Plants as often as I go, because I try to avoid bias. But since this is a totally different forum, here’s my last meal.
And here I go talking about this place like “hey, I go here all the time.” My last time there was over a month ago. Oh well! It wasn’t because the food wasn’t good, because that would not be true. The food was awesome!
Potatoes on top. Inside, jackfruit and lentils I think, along with a few other things which I wish I could remember!
Sweet Grass always has a vegan dish or two on their menu. For a while over the last year they had been doing Meatless Mondays where they had either a vegan or vegetarian (or both) dish, but a few months ago, they brought in a vegan chef consultant to help them have more vegan dishes on a regular basis. I really wish I had the time to go more often- I really do support this business!
Desert! I can’t remember exactly what it was, but it was apricots on a cashew-based crust and it was good!
They also always have at least one vegan dessert on the menu, which is just awesome. This night they had one, which was the one above, and a “vegan possible” dessert- I believe that the other dessert had honey drizzled on it, but they left it off for the vegan possible.
It’s nice to have a restaurant that has reliably good vegan dishes who really understands what it is they’re talking about when it comes to vegan. While I’d love a restaurant in the area that serves an all-vegan menu, there’s something to be said about a place where it’s not too hard to convince your friends to go. They might even order a meatless dish! I think it can be helpful to bring people to places where they have a choice and they decide on the meatless dish even when they don’t have to. Give it a try sometime. 🙂
