One of my favorite local restaurants in Tarrytown, NY, Sweet Grass Grill has a weekly Meatless Monday tasting menu, so I've been setting up monthly meet-ups to take advantage of it. Lately, they've had even more vegan options and sometimes a whole vegan Monday menu including dessert. Woo-hoo!
The Beet Sliders were amazing. What was really cool was that it was a slab of beet, not mixed all up like a ground burger. It was perfectly chewy and wonderfully flavored. This is a winner. The indian spiced polenta fries were also delish with curry ketchup. I totally stole the restaurant's photo. Mine had a nice bite out of it and bad lighting. I'll have to bug them next time for whatever bright space they used for this pic.
Vegan Monday Menu
I forgot to ask why this was called a lollipop salad. I dig kumquats. Sweet on the outside sour on the inside. I hadn't thought to throw them in a salad before. This was also nice. We also had a healthy debate over the spelling on the menu.
Munched on beet burger...
Dessert was chocolate espresso polenta. It was dense and chocolatey and probably good for you. A great way to end an evening.
The picky vegan was there as always, and I also met the Food Duo. We'll all be in Portland in May for vegan blog-a-con!
