A Sublime evening

Happy New Year! I'm back and ready to rock in 08.

Things have finally settled down a bit--I sold my condo and moved to a rental while we wait for the housing market to stabilize. However, I'm on a business trip all week and haven't fully unpacked in my new place. I look forward to returning and settling in.

I was waiting for this picture (thanks, Tracy!) to write about our fabulous meal at Sublime, an upscale vegan restaurant in Florida. Oh my Buddha*, was it good. I have been eating pretty lightly for the past month or two and I overdid it at Sublime. I had that "I'll never eat again" feeling for at least 12 hours afterwards. But it was worth it.

We started with the Yin and Yang and Florasian "sushi" (I'm going to stop putting things in quotes to denote vegan-ness). For mains, two of us had the Portabello Tenderloin (shown above with its tower of onion rings), one had the Piccata, and HS had the grilled seitan steak. My portabello was absolutely delicious. The sauce was rich and pepper-y. We shared a piece of coconut cake and a brownie for dessert. HS goes to Sublime every year when he's in Florida and I hope to continue the tradition!

*This is a great expression that Thai people use.

I've wanted to go to Sublime ever since I first read about it many years ago in Vegnews.

Oh, and the oatmeal pudding is good cold OR hot :o).

What an awesome place - tres chic! I need to do more with portobello mushrooms - they sound so hearty and wintry, especially with a red wine sauce (or is that just me?). Happy (belated) New Year!

Haha...oh my Buddha! I'll have to remember that one. Must have been nice to visit someplace warmer. Congrats on the condo sale.
