For vegetarians, Thanksgiving is sort of like going to a Dolphins game with a Jets jersey on. I know firsthand because I practiced the lifestyle for almost four years back in high school and college. No matter how accepting your family is (and mine is pretty accepting), you're going to get made fun of constantly on Turkey Day as a vegetarian. You'll get poked and prodded to "just eat some turkey today, goddamn it." And all you can do is take your lumps and pile on the side dishes.
Sublime --Fort Lauderdale's premier vegetarian mecca -- knows how
harrowing Thanksgiving can be for vegetarians, so
it's opening up
for a short but sweet dinner service that is cruelty-free.
From 4 to 6 p.m. on November 26, Sublime will serve a four-course meal
that starts with roasted acorn squash bisque and Waldorf salad lavished
with apples, raisins, and walnuts. Your days of stomaching rubbery Tofurky
will be long behind you after a main course of gardein "turkey" with
string beans, crispy onions, corn-bread stuffing, herb gravy, and
cranberry sauce. If faux turkey's not your bag, you can opt instead for
wild mushroom stroganoff with gluten-free noodles. Dessert will be a
pumpkin cheesecake with almond crust. For $45, this is a Thanksgiving meal
free of guilt both family- and diet-related. (You can even haul the kids along for $25 a pop.) Call
954-615-1431, or visit SublimeRestaurant.com to make a reservation.
