Paul took me to lunch on Friday to a wonderful restaurant we haven't been to in ages. The set-up is modern and cafe-ish (sometimes with live music or readings) and. . .vegetarian! Vegan items are clearly marked. In Florida, it rarely gets cold enough to enjoy a good cup of HOT tea. Logically, Infusion serves cold meals to offset the heat of the drink. There are many more tea options on the menu than there are food options. The choice of the day was a camomile (non-caffeinated) tea brewed in front of your very eyes for as long as use wish. Three hour-glass timers help you decide the strength of your tea.
Paul ordered an avocado sandwich with creamy hummus spread, spinach and tomato on whole wheat bread. Cleverly, the same sandwich can be ordered as a wrap. The miso was cold and colorful with a yellow-green chunky soup topped with herbs and tomatoes. It had a good flavor with a strong sense of . . .celery? Perhaps not my favorite item from there, but Paul wasn't complaining.
My plate had fantastically seasoned and toasted baguette bites covered with fresh tomatoes, pine nuts and crumbled goat cheese. Mixed baby greens in the center of the plate were sprinkled with balsamic vinegar that generously spread over to my toast. The cheese was truly a sensation: so creamy, it almost melted in your mouth.
