Bridgeport Gem: Best Vegetarian Restaurant – The Bloodroot Restaurant is very likely the best vegetarian restaurant in the country and will remain in my mind as one of the best restaurants of any variety at which I've had the pleasure of eating. Atmosphere, views, excellent food, there's even a bookstore. They are celebrating their 31st year -- an amazing feat for any small business especially a restaurant. I bought their first cookbook when I became a vegetarian and have used that book faithfully for the last 25 years.
What do I love? Fresh bread & scrumptious desserts are made daily. The menu is seasonal & local , organic ingredients are emphasized. The Bloodroot women take standard American and ethnic flavors and improve them by using high quality ingredients and subtle culinary skills, capturing what you love about a dish but removing the meat. Many of their recipes are now vegan.
This is real food for real hunger. I recently had dinner with my wife at Bloodroot and our meals were exceptional: on my plates were a beautiful hearty escarole soup, fresh hot whole wheat bread, a generous tossed salad dressed to perfection, and a piece of vegan lemon curd pie -- zesty with an perfect crust. My wife had faux Thai chicken which had a delicate under note of coconut, along side oatmeal sunflower bread that was soft and luscious, and chocolate cake. And this chocolate cake was worth Every calorie.
While you're at the Bloodroot, pickup copies of their new 2 volume cookbook. This place is wonderful!
Vegetarian heaven! – I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years. It is wonderful, an oasis in Bridgeport. It overlooks Captain's Cove and you can sit outside in the summer. It is a feminist restaurant and you serve yourself. You order at the front desk and then they call your name when its ready. The desserts are wonderful, as are their homemade bread and entrees. Everything is made from scratch and is deeply flavorful. It has a very relaxing atmosphere.
