Good choice for vegans

3 of 4 stars.

(see explanation of ratings below)

We went to this place on a Thursday night and there was a 25-minute wait.

HUGE selection of beers on tap and a HUGE menu with many Asian influences and several choices for vegans (this chain has California roots).

I tried the vegan “wings” which had a nice Buffalo-style flavor, but were way too salty.

The vegan sliders were tasty, too, but the ratio of bun to “meat” was about 6 to 1. In other words [note to chef]: where’s the “beef”?! Great, thin-cut fries.

The best dish we had was the ahi poke salad.

With no soft surfaces on the floors, walls or ceiling, this place is quite loud when packed. Some quiet time can be found outside, and they have some pretty good heaters and stylish fire pits to keep you warm.

Price: about $40 per person. That includes five small “shorty” beers, tip not included.

Add points for cloth napkins. Subtract points for ubiquitous big-screen TV’s giving this place more of a sports bar feel than that of a fine dining establishment.

About my ratings:

Only fine dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food (no table service)

2) casual dining (table service)

3) fine dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, typically more expensive than casual dining)

Fine dining can earn a max of five stars. Casual dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

too much bun, not enough “meat”
