If there is an innovative vegan and vegetarian place that continuously strives for authored excellence in vegetarian and vegan cuisine, it has to be Ambasada. While it is relatively easier to take vegan or vegetarian aspects of certain eastern cuisines, it is altogether different when this excellence is based on standards of European cuisine; this is the case at Ambasada where each dish is a true healthful and flavorful innovation. Items such as the cream of parsley soup with pear and vanilla; the lentils pate with mushrooms; the “weghetti” which is the gluten free pasta with tomatoes, spinach and garlic; and the hugely popular raw-food zucchini lasagna, are all examples of culinary excellence. With desserts such as the vegan “cheesecake” made with cashews, an array of fresh fruit, vegetable and herb juices, fine teas, and coffees even made with various plantderived milk alternatives such as from almonds or soy. Ambasada remains a top social and celebrity dining venue!
