We were visiting Chicago over Thanksgiving and decided to preorder a takeout meal to ensure that we would be able to find some vegetarian food on the holiday. The portions were huge, and it was nice to see that the Diner was offering this holiday option.
We ordered the beef Wellington and lentil "meatloaf" meals. The Wellington was excellent, as were the sides of stuffing and baked apples. However, I wouldn't do the meatloaf again. It was clearly supposed to get all its taste from the ketchup, which I didn't want. Plus, the lentils and other fillers hadn't been soaked enough, making the meal dry and giving it an abrasive texture. My husband also ordered a slice pumpkin cheezecake but couldn't get past the first few bites, reminding that vegetarian why he hasn't gone vegan. Even so, most of the food was good, and we're eager to try the full menu at the restaurant next time we're in Chicago.
