We had trouble convincing our vegan friends to come along for $24 healthy vegan menu items and thought we'd never make it alone, then we noticed fellow healthy vegan Kathy Freston tweeted a vegan meal from Craigs and we knew we had to go asap!
One trick to skipping the fancy rigameroll of five star dining is opting to eat at the bar. We quickly evaded the reservation line and snagged seats front and center. Now the wonderful thing about high end dining is high end service. We asked the bar tender if he could ask the chef what vegan items they could do w/o oil. The chef appeared and gave us our options in person :)
|Spaghetti Squash Primavera $26 (-oily marinara)|
|Vegan Pizza $18 (-daiya - sauce -oil base)|
Kristin opted for a flat bread (the bread has a little oil in it), but you can tell there is no oil on the base since it was burnt a little!
