Does anyone here have this, either from the bookstore or the library? I'd love to know more about the recipes in this one.

I saw a copy of the book at Barnes & Noble, and I'm pretty excited about it! The book includes recipes from several vegan restaurants I know and love - like Sun Cafe, Native Foods, Veggie Grill, Millennium, Karyn's On Green... In addition to each restaurant offering a recipe, there is also a Q&A with the owner. I was particularly jazzed to see that the recipe from Native Foods was for the steak sandwich, which is one of my all time favorites.

I've got it! My friends' restaurant is in it (Wayward in Seattle - it features Tami's recipe for nutloaf, which I can tell you is delicious), so I bought it from them. I think it has a really great, huge variety of interesting dishes. I love that it has recipes from some of the bigger names in vegan eats (Native Foods, Veggie Grill, Millennium, Candle Cafe, Real Food Daily, Loving hut etc) as well as dishes from restaurants I've visited that aren't in my hometown (Portobello, Counter Culture, Cornbread Cafe), two Seattle eateries, and restaurants I've never heard of and will probably never visit. It's an interesting book as well as a delicious one.

What's the Veggie Grill recipe? I would love to know how they make their Chipotle Ranch dressing or the Creamy Ranch dressing.

Loved Wayward. I think I ate there every day when I was in Seattle! Definitely need this book.

The Veggie Grill recipes are Crostini Italiano, Farr (Out) Yam, and Cherry Royal.

I've never seen these items on their menu but maybe it's not the same Southern California based Veggie Grill chain I'm thinking of? A PDF of their menu can be found here.

It is a Hollywood location. Weird, I'd expect all locations of a chain to serve the same menu items.

Lots of interesting recipes but I doubt I would make many of them. The layout is hard to go back and find recipes although it is fun to read about each restaurant.

They do! The last time I was at the Hollywood location, it was the same as the others. Maybe these are items they have phased out or are planning to try in the future? This is very odd.
