- I have been here only once. I liked the food and the staff.

- This is what I'm talkinbout! Really awesome filling brunch with lots of options for your scrambled tofu. Excellent homefries, good coffee, speedy service and a mish mash of art on the walls to keep you entertained. Just skip the veggie sausage, whatever that was.

- I second the tofu + mushroom "ribs" - they were sooooo good. Slices of blackened tofu and strips of portabello arranged in a fan to resemble a rack of ribs - silly, but delicious! I've been coming to ODM for years, almost every time I come to NY (I'm from Rhode Island, land of precious few vegan options), and I must say I've never been disappointed. My husband and his band are omnivores and I am vegan, so this is the perfect place to make us all happy. The sides are the best part, especially the collards and black eyed peas. YUM! Everything is pretty reasonably priced, and has been consistently good for years. My only wish is that they had just ONE vegan pie to offer - then I would be perfectly happy. Until then, I'll go down the street to Kate's Joint for vegan pie.

- This place is fantastic. The ambiance is very southern, as is the food. The wait staff is very laid-back (so don't go there if you're in a hurry!) and accomadating to vegans. They're very willing to substitute vegan sides (collard greens, vegan slaw, etc.) for any non-vegan items that come with your meal (usually mac n' cheese or cornbread). I strongly recommend the portabello/tofu BBQ ribs or the grilled portabello & greens salad (especially when asparagus is in season). Some nights they even have live appalachain-type music.
They have Lone Star beer, which was comforting to me as an ex-texan, although it's priced as an import (it was dirt cheap in Austin). They're only open for dinner during the week (they have brunch on weekends...with a good tofu-scramble). During the day the restaurant is used to make erotic cakes (under the moniker 'Masturbakers').
