This reasoning led me to finally try Angelica Kitchen. Bezzy McBez, our token vegetarian, and I went out on a movie date and ended up discussing how neither of us has ever eaten at Angelica even though it's been around since we were babes. It just seemed too crunchy, and granola, and healthy, and om-y. AKA the perfect dinner spot for two 'I'm on a healthy kick' ladies. While I went for the beet salad, Bez went for a special. I can't recall the exact name, but it was vegetarian chili with a side of quinoa and surprisingly delicious. Meatless definitely doesn't have to mean bland, and the quinoa's nutty flavor added to an already excellent chili. The only real problem came from huge broccoli florets that needed cutting, but that's hard to achieve with no knife available. If we were on dates, it would take some serious finagling to eat those gracefully.
Be warned! Angelica Kitchen is stuck in 1990 and is cash only.
