There’s a small vegetarian restaurant hidden on a street filled with fur shops. Was this a form of rebellion? Perhaps an uprising against the fur establishment? Or merely a bright spot on a street devoted to dead animals?
Le Végétarien is a small restaurant geared towards healthy breakfast and lunch. You’ll find an assortment of salads, soups, and vegetables.
I stopped by this shop after their lunch service and picked up a very nice smoothie. I couldn’t tell you about the food, but there may be some new reviews. I walked into a scene that was straight out of a movie. A girthy food critic was the only customer in the shop and held court in the middle of the dining area. The owner and chef brought out dishes for him to sample and placed them lovingly on his table with a description of the organic ingredients and preparation. He’d take a bite, nod, take notes, and they disappeared into the kitchen for the next dish.
So let’s hope the restaurant gets good reviews from the food critic and more customers make their way past the fur shops.
I’ve only had the smoothie, so I can’t give it a full review for service and quality. The smoothie was great. However, some of the reviews online have been mixed. I welcome your comments, should this place be higher rated? I plan on trying it again soon.
