Elixir used to be an incredible martini bar, featuring lots of exciting drinks: basil mojitos, Swedish fish martinis with Swedish fish candies at the bottom of the glass, chocolate espresso martinis which featured a coco-powder-and-sugar-dusted rim and dark chocolate-covered espresso beans at the bottom... My one complaint was that the only non-potable option for vegans on the menu was a plate of fries.
The restaurant recently re-opened under new management and I was pleased to see that the menu mentions that vegetarian/vegan options are available. However, I was disappointed to discover that the vegan option that the chef decided to make for me was just a bowl of couscous with fiddleheads, tomatoes and corn. It was pretty bland and the portion was very small. I ended up eating a second dinner afterwards (at home) because I was still hungry. I thought that this was pretty unacceptable, given the $18 price tag on my vegan meal. Moreover, the amazing drink menu seems to have vanished and been replaced with pretty standard bar options.
I'm hoping that the new management will learn as they go and eventually return Elixir to its former days of glory (and come up with some more creative vegan options while they're at it!). Unless some serious changes take place, I doubt that I'll ever return to Elixir.
