Food Porn: Sage Cafe

"...I'd asked Voracious readers for a vegan restaurant that could satisfy some weird and half-joking demands I'd made for a suitable vegan alternative to proper summer barbecue. There were rules: It had to be prepared at least vaguely like real barbecue, had to taste at least as good as the worst full-cruelty, pig-based 'cue I'd ever had in my years of full-blown BBQ addiction. And Sage was the restaurant that kept coming up, a place that many people swore by—their go-to joint for cruelty-free cuisine and a menu completely devoid of anything with a face. And everything was fine and fun while we were all arguing on the blog about the limits of vegetarian cuisine and calling each other names, but at a certain point it had become clear that I was going to have to check Sage out for myself, to see whether the claims of those who loved it were true: that it was not just tolerable, but good, occasionally great, the kind of food that people craved."
