NEW RESTAURANTS I'VE ENJOYED
There are two restaurants in town that I hadn't tried and one very new one. I think the two had been in existence for a while...but I just hadn't been to visit them.
The first is Sweet Arts. It's a bakery/cafe. What a nice little cafe...all vegetarian...on 39th street in the Grand area. I had a tasty veggie burger, so meat-like that half way through consuming it I had to go check with the counter person to make sure it truly was vegetarian. It was. This place also has a cupcake happy hour which I think is a nice touch. Awwww...so cute. : )
The second is Vegadeli. This is a small cafe in a strip mall on Olive Blvd. just off I-64 (Hwy 40) quite far from where I live (boohoo)...but worth the drive. I had a varied menu to choose from with lots of raw food dishes and I chose the mango burger. Just dandy! I enjoyed it with a few nicely roasted potatoes.
The third and very newest restaurant is Farmhaus on Ivanhoe very near where I live. They only offer lunch at this time and it's a "blue plate special" as in days past, where lunch could be fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and a salad all for one money. In this case it's ten bucks. I only had their salad (see photo) which they were happy to provide and which I enjoyed. On my second visit I added their green bean casserole...very delish, made with fresh green beans. I think they will soon have tables outdoors and will begin serving dinner. It's very exciting having another good restaurant using fresh veggies and local foods in my neck of the woods.
I wish all these folks much success. I enjoyed eating in each of them.
