A quick vegetarian rant!

First of all this has nothing to do about wine, so disregard the title of the blog for the next few minutes. :-)

I have been hearing good things about Karsens in Carytown, but unfortunately I couldn’t seem to find a menu online. Well yesterday the Times Dispatch did an article on Karsens and within the article posted the restaurants website. So I was all excited to see what entrees they had on their menu – for a Vegetarian.

And to my amazement (not really), and confusion another fine dining restaurant in Richmond has not one single Vegetarian entrĂ©e on the menu. Come on people, this is ridiculous and it totally baffles mine and Megan’s mind that any restaurant not to mention fancy ones don’t have ONE vegetarian option. I am not asking for 2, 3, or 4, just 1. And yes I know if you go there with other people, usually the chef can whip something up, but sometimes not.

This is not a stab at Karsens, just at fine dining establishments in general that commit the “crime” stated above. Their menu does in fact look delicious for someone who eats meat and fish.

I think that current statistics claim 15% of the population is vegetarian, that is a pretty good number of restaurants goers. So fine dining establishments here in Richmond and across the country listen up, I want to give you my money so get creative and give me a veggie entree option!!

Thank you for letting me rant! Ha ha!!

Fight the power my vegetarian friend! Karsens also has the most expensive menu in town according to the Style article published this week.

excellent comment - i completely agree - so many places could benefit with the addition of great veg/even vegan option(s). we all enjoy ipanema but certainly would be grateful for other choices.

Doesn't it just piss you off when there's not a damned thing on the menu that's vegetarian!? I mean, damn, can I not get some pasta with cheese on the menu?? Sorry for the rant...but I'm with you, brother...
