I have eaten here 3 times and continue to be disappointed in the bland overpriced food. Twice for dinner, where I paid $19 for seitan that costs $3.00 a box in Whole Foods. And the funny thing is I like how I prepare it at home better than the breaded super rubbery version Candle serves. How can wheat gluten possibly cost the same as wild salmon does in a comparable restaurant??
The most recent visit was for brunch. I was anxious to try it for brunch because I am tired of always getting the rather unhealthy pancake or waffle option at regular restaurants. I got the nuevos rancheros (not sure if that's the exact name) - a mexican take on tempeh with potatoes, guac, vegan sour cream, the works. It was okay, not great. It reminded me a lot of an Amy's frozen dinner I like with similar ingredients - and tasted very similar too. If the meal had cost closer to what the Amy's frozen dinner costs I'd have been quite happy - problem is it was $20 including tax. As a pesce-tarian, I'm all for veggie and vegan restaurants and I try to avoid dairy whenever possible, but come on people - $20 for wheat gluten or tempeh is just robbery. For those prices it needs to be astronomically delicious, not remind me of my fave frozen dinner. The atmosphere is a bit tired too, reminds me of a Marriot. Downstairs is particularly drab.
