Blossom doesn't make me say "Whoa!"

Pistachio & Pepper Dusted Tofu

Blossom has been on our neighborhood "to try" list for quite some time now and tonight we were in the mood for lighter fare. We had a mini-love affair with Pure Food & Wine when we lived over in the Flatiron District and we've enjoyed picking up quick bites from their Blossom Du Jour spot, so we were excited to see what Blossom had to offer.

We entered into an intimate, elegantly-casual dining room and quickly made our selection. The Mr. ordered the Pistachio & Pepper Dusted Tofu (served with a root vegetable crepe, lemon truffle emulsion, frisée in red beet vinaigrette) and I chose the Vegetable Mezze Plate (green & yellow wax beans, escarole & cannellini beans, summer squash & corn, sautéed kale, purple yam purée, spiced quinoa pilaf, tahini spirulina).

Our food arrived promptly and I was very excited about my vegetables, but when I started eating I found it to be extremely bland. As someone who will eat the heck outta a bag of Steamfresh, I was happy to have some high quality, farm fresh veggies, but was very disappointed by the lack of seasoning. I wound up eating each bite with some of the purple yam puree since it was the most flavorful thing on the plate.

The Mr. enjoyed his meal, but our overall consensus was that we will probably only return if we ever need to entertain a Vegan in Chelsea. I qualified that with "in Chelsea" because I heartily recommend checking out Pure Food & Wine if you are interested in a truly delightful Vegan culinary experience.
