Success of Vegeria will require serving the underserved … and luring the merely curious
Published: August 17, 2011
The third visit, however, caught the team with its apron strings untied. Devastated by a lunch rush, they were sold out of empanadas (while the menu encourages you to ask about the empanada flavor of the day, there really only is one type, I was told), and the enchiladas with “seasonal veggies” arrived nearly 30 minutes later stuffed solely with garlicky potatoes. If that’s as bad as it gets … No sweat. The cruelty-free oatmeal, chocolate, and cherry cookie kills.
For an enterprise born of conviction and service (“We want to serve those who are not served well,” Garza said of SA’s veggies, gluten intolerants, and those of special needs), and a mere six grand, the operation is going gangbusters. And when the Current returns for a serious food review in a couple months (maybe when the dinner menu launches, and hopefully that’s well before the planned January date), I suspect the boys and girls at Vegeria will be more than ready. •
