Review by evelinemater on December 18, 2010:
- Le Verdure is one of the 5 or 6 restaurants within the Italian food emporium Eataly, and serves only vegetable items (no meat, although on some dishes they do use parmigiano which is not vegetarian). The menu clearly indicates that all items are vegan unless there is an asterisk next to the item. The open kitchen can be seen from the seating at the eating bar and seemed clean and very well run. Always a good sign in my opinion to have an open kitchen. We ordered three vegan items, including one of the specials of the day which the staff quickly determined was vegan. All the dishes were very good: one of the bruschettas of the day (cannelini and kale, on excellent grilled bread), the vegetable soup which happened to be a nice dark lentil soup, and the zucca arrosta - roasted acorn squash on a bed of black lentils with roasted cippolini onions drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It wasn't cheap but wasn't expensive ($36 for those three items), and nicely fresh and filling. I would definitely return. The only downside was the matron who plopped down in the chair next to me in a massive fur coat ... schifosa! FYI, the bread is vegan. The espresso from the espresso bars is pretty awesome too.
