In the meantime, Scholars... I've been there on weekend nights before, but never for dinner. I hadn't realized until recently how creative of a menu they have, definitely more than your average bar fare.
I had the Lemon Scallion Risotto, which is the only thing marked on their menu as vegan. They also have a portabella sandwich that seems to be vegan by reading the menu, but for some reason is not marked as such. It was dark (hence the poor quality photo) and loud, plus I was at a networking event so I didn't want to eat a messy sandwich and therefore did not inquire about it.
Overall, it was a great dish, a little misleading, but still good. I was surprised to find such a great menu at Scholars, since I think of it as a place to dance on the weekends. I appreciate the fact that not only do they have designated vegan items on their menu but, even though it's only one item, it's an interesting dish you don't find everywhere and not a boring go-to just so that they can say they have something. Thanks Scholar's!
