i hadn't been to the ecopolitan in years, and now i find myself questioning why that was because i just had one of the best dining experiences that i can recall-anywhere!
i went in at 7:45 on a saturday expecting a wait, but the dining room was already winding down from the dinner rush, and we were seated immediately. my hubby and i shared the cashew "cheese log" for an appetizer, and ordered the 'chili cheese' green burrito and the casserole plate with soup for our entrees. the cheese log was incredible! i can't remember ever having a raw cheeze that was so thick and creamy, and whatever they season it with (rejeuvalac maybe?) gave it a very distinguished, savory-cheesy flavor and depth. it was salty creamy bliss covered in olives, basil and oil, and came with some great flax crackers. out of our two entrees i enjoyed the burrito the most. it was 2 huge collards stuffed with cashew sour cream, pine nut cheese, and this amazing lentil-mushroom taco meat that was spiced like a traditional taco meat would be. the portion was more than ample, especially after only eating 2/3rds of our app. the casserole was covered in a creamy dill sauce, and eat bite reminded me of dipping veggies in ranch dressing as a kid; actually, this is the only vegan 'ranch sauce' that i've had that actually tasted like ranch! my only complaint is that since the ranch flavor really permeated the layers of the casserole, it would have lost it's oomph if i hadn't had the side of soup (and the hubby's burrito) to change it up. some people comment on skimpy portion sizes but i found our experience to be quite opposite- we had one burrito and half our appetizer left when we decided to save a little room for dessert. we split a piece of strawberry cheesecake, and it was pretty tasty-and light! my biggest surprise was that although a cashew cheese was incorporated into each dish we had, each had a different, remarkable texture and flavor. my other surprise was the bill: $61.50 for one appetizer, 2 entrees, a bottle of wine, and a dessert. most of our meals out sans wine and dessert can run us at least 50. this is definitely going high on our list of cozy dates for two that won't break the bank.
edit: fyi, the wait between ordering and our app was 15min, and our food came out less than 10min later. a super win in my book :)

WOW! My husband and I were SO amazed with this food. Anyone who doesn't appreciate this place is very uneducated about the importance of food and most likely has a very abused palate. Try, for sure, the Pine nut not-cho cheese appetizer if you like spicy food. It was out of this world. We had two pizzas-perfection on a plate. We ordered the "rawmlettes"-again, perfect. The coconut cream pie almost made me pass out it was so savory. This place is the best restaurant (raw, cooked, vegan, whatever you want to compare it to) we have EVER been to. A must-try for anyone wanting an exciting dining experience.
