Seed Restaurant Review

: Seed is located in the Garden District, just steps from busy St. Charles Avenue. The restaurant’s interior is as bright and clean as the food, with colorful paintings by local artists adorning the walls. The menu is conspicuously devoid of meat, but the preparations may make you forget all about your carnivorous tendencies. The barbecue sandwich is made with high protein seitan, contrived from high protein gluten. Spaghetti with puttanesca sauce is all vegetable based. Po’ boys are crafted with either fried eggplant or fried tofu. Still, there are highly indulgent desserts, such as traditional beignets with powdered sugar and even house-made cakes. About a half dozen wines are offered, and there is a full bar. True to its concept, smoothies (try the triple chocolate avocado) and blended juices are available.
