I Eat Plants: Sweet Grass Grill in Tarrytown

2

I’ve written about Sweet Grass Grill before- it’s a frequent meeting place for the Westchester Veggie Eat-Up, but it deserves another mention! The vegan menu offerings keep growing!  The regular menu continues to feature one main vegan dish-the Vegan Shepherd’s Pie, but there are frequently new vegan dishes for Meatless Mondays!

I love it when I see the word “vegan” on a menu at a non-vegan restaurant.

I’m finding it more and more often that restaurants are using the word vegan on the menu. I give serious props to places that do this! It doesn’t have to be a secret when there’s not animal products on the plate!

Lollipop kale is those dark, curled up pieces. For some reason, I was expecting kale on a stick, but you learn something new every day!

I hadn’t heard of Lollipop Kale before. I ended up looking it up later on, and was surprised at which part of the salad it was! It was a fruity and light salad, and the lollipop kale is interesting.

The polenta fries were off the hook!

This was an absolutely fantastic entree. Beets are a great stand-in for a burger! I know many people will use mushroom caps as a burger stand-in, but I don’t like those. I was very happy with this. And the polenta fries- outstanding. I hope those will be on the menu again!

Chocolate Espresso Polenta.

Two vegan dessert options that night! I went with the one on the tasting menu. There wasn’t a great espresso flavor, which made me happy, as I don’t care for espresso. :-)

Nice soup for a light meal!

So another friend of mine wanted to go to Sweet Grass later int he week- so I went back. I have a habit of ordering the same thing over and over again when I go to a restaurant- and I’m on a mission to broaden my horizons. Fortunately, the soup on special was a vegan tomato & red pepper. Nice and light!

Okay, maybe not so light a meal with fries…

My name is Jodie, and I’m a carb-o-holic. I love fries, what can I say?

See! It says vegan!

Vegan on the menu again! I’m glad I tried the special vegan dessert the other night, because then this one was new to me!

I know it looks like chocolate, but it’s dark because of the forbidden rice. Very good!

A word about the service- excellent. I’m starting to feel like family when I come in!

So, two great meals at Sweet Grass Grill in one week! And I will definitely be back.
