Philly is amazing! Vegan options galore! We recently traveled there for the annual Green Carpet Gala hosted by the Peace Advocacy Network. They're a great organization, and we looked at attending their gala as an opportunity to support them and finally check out all the vegan places in Philly we've only read about.
Our first stop was at the famed fine dining vegan restaurant, Horizons.
611 S. 7th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147

As usual, we're overwhelmed by the fact that we could eat everything on the menu. We did what we could. We started by ordering two appetizers to share. I should add that they've got a very nice wine selection with something to pair with anything on the menu.
Marya selected this portobella carpaccio with salsa rustica and croustini:
And I ordered the ramen bowl with bok choy and pho broth. They had me at pho.
Then, Marya had this pan-seared tofu with a mushroom and brussel sprout sauce:
And I got this mushroom reuben:
For dessert I ordered the apricot crisp cheesecake:
And Marya ordered this (Yes, this is vegan too!!!) crème brûlée:
I noticed on their drink menu a cocktail featuring two beverages from the local distillery, so I had to order it:
Their menu changes with the seasons, so many of the above dishes aren't available anymore. At last check the carpaccio and the ramen are still available. The cheesecakes are ever evolving, as is the crème brûlée. We'll certainly make a point to go to Horizons every time we're in town.
