I'm not sure what one should make of this, but the worst food I've
ever had was at Amitabul.  It tasted like cardboard and I honestly
couldn't believe vegan food could be made this bad (I love vegan food
and have had many good meals at Chicago Diner and many spots in NY).

I think the most useful restaurant listings will be ones off the Blue

other people know of some more, perhaps off the stops closer to
