|I am 95% sure they don't get their food animals from Wild Rumpus next door.|
We didn't call it the Harriet Brassiere once while we were there.
The Harriet Brasserie

Exotic animal dishes abound at The Harriet Brasserie. Pheasant, duck, bison, octopus and more all roam freely across the menu. I'm sure the animals were free-range, well-fed, and produced organically. Whatever. But the nice thing is that there's this one vegan option: Tofu Hash for $10. It's cleverly made available for brunch and dinner.
|This wild tofu grew up among the bison and pheasant, then was humanely slaughtered for your enjoyment.|
The fried tofu was accompanied by yucca, red bell pepper, shishito peppers, and fermented black beans. The flavor combination was spicy, tangy, and lovely, and the textures - especially with watercress thrown into the mix - provided a fantastic variety. The tofu tasted slightly bitter, but overall I confess myself impressed by the preparation of such a complex vegan dish at such a fancy meat-oriented brassiere. I mean, brasserie.
Come here with a non-vegan and watch them drink a Nutella Mocha. Then kindly offer to smell their mug for them. This, I feel, is a major selling point. Matt's gonna be all up ons.
