TownHall Ohio City is...THE BOMB (do people still say that?)!
I hit this place a few nights ago with some non-veg friends (Baldwin Shout-out!), which means that TownHall can cater to the most discerning vegan critic (that's me) as well as those pesky meat eaters (xoxo).
This new Ohio City restaurant caught my attention and taste buds at this year's 2nd Annual VegGala, where they made a stunning debut with an "Oh My God!" Butternut Squash Soup & a scrumptious Veggie Burger made with brown rice, black beans and beets. Both had me going to back for seconds, thirds, fourths...it got a little out of control and yes I may have made a spectacle out of myself, but a vegan girls gotta do what she's got...ta DO!
Needless to say, I had the very same meal this time and it was just as incredible as I remembered. I really need to hit this place again and try out their other vegan offerings...such as their Yucca Sticks (no clue what that is, but it's a root vegetable), Vegan Chili, West Side Market Veggie Flat Bread, freshly squeezed Juices or Smoothies!
I did get a bite or two of their Matchstick Truffle Fries (made vegan) and Basil Fried Rice (made vegan), both were pretty good as well. They were out of the Vegan Salted Caramel Milkshake, so I got the vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie, which was nothing to get excited about...
TownHall seems to be the new hot spot in town, so reservations on a weekend at least are definitely recommended. Not a place to have a quiet evening - it's LOUD & busy, but full of the downtown energy you would expect in Ohio City.
Afterwards, we hit up Mitchell's Ice Cream (right next door) for some vegan ice cream delights! So far they only offer two flavors: Chocolate & Salted Caramel.
Both are AMAZING!
Both are made using coconut milk.
Both are typically sold out.
Which I say is a good thing; it shows demand and hopefully Mitchell's will take the hint (VEGANS LOVE ICE CREAM TOO!!!) and broaden the offering!
