My Mom had the Thanksgiving ($8.25) and a Cup of Vegan Black Bean Soup ($2.50) which was the soup of the day. That soup was so delicious that it should be served everyday of the week. It was savory and full of flavor. Everything in it from the carrots to the black beans went well with the stock. Thanksgiving sandwhich was probably one of the best sandwhich my mom has ever had. It had roasted turkey breast, romaine lettuce, tomato, sliced red onion, cranberry-cream cheese spread with walnuts, all on a whole-grain bread. The smoked turkey breast was thick and and went really nicely with the cranberry-cream cheese. Basically it tasted just like Thanksgiving, just without the family and awkward dinner conversations.
I had The Guido ( $8.50) and the Liv Chopped ($9.25) . The Liv Chopped had dried chicken, celery, apple, red onion, grapes, romaine lettuce, tossed with their homemade Dijon-dressing and topped with fried herbed goat cheese. It was lightly touched with dressing allowing you to still taste the ingredients in the salad. The grapes added a burst of flavor to the salad and the fried goat cheese was a gourmet take on a mozzarella stick, which was nice. The Guido could be served on your choice of a caibatta or marble rye. It was very meaty with salami, ham, capocollo, and prosciutto. The pesto aiolli sorta tied everything together in the sandwhich.
