My husband and I are both vegan. On a recent trip to Chicago, a vegetarian friend and her omni husband suggested eating there, so we did.
The veg food at Green Zebra looked really good, but the vegan options were more limited and less exciting. This was a tapas-style menu and a prix fixe option-- my husband got one and I got the other.
Between us we had the Tuscan Kale salad (okay), another salad with frisee (better IMO but I can't recall exactly what else was in it or what it was called), heirloom summer bean chili with roasted poblano peppers (sweet, spicy and pretty good), Nichols Farm Summer Squash Hash (also pretty good), Country Flatbrad with tomato jam and some veggies (pretty good too) and three side dishes to share around the table -- Foraged Maitake Mushrooms, Roasted Summer Squash, and Sauteed Pole Beans. The mushrooms was the best of these side dishes, tasty but very salty. Dessert was Key Lime Angel Food Cake with Avocado Ice Cream-- nice but not wow.
In fact, that would be my verdict about Green Zebra-- everything was solid but nothing was stellar. The food was pretty good, but not enough to justify the cost of dining there, at least for us vegans. I think our vegetarian-dish-eating friends fared better, but as a vegan, considering the cost, I'd have to give this three stars and recommend going to The Girl and the Goat instead.
