THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Veggie Planet Restaurant Review

: Didi Emmons is the chefly equivalent of a jam band, building a following through grassroots commitment to her craft and the social responsibilities it entails. Her gig, as it were, is a global brand of cuisine all her own: culturally savvy, personally quirky and, most of all, fresh and tasty. It's evident in her cookbooks (Vegetarian Planet is a cult fave) and in her menu at this Harvard Square pizzeria for vegetarians and vegans. The slightly sweet, organic, whole-wheat dough yields a nice balance between crunch and chew. But these pies are all about their toppings. The Portobello Redhead combines mushrooms, caramelized onions and feta with romesco, the classic Spanish red pepper-almond sauce touched with spice. It's good enough to replace tomato sauce anytime. Red peanut curry is served over coconut rice with tofu and broccoli. Sound odd? Not to Thais, who will tell you flatbreads are traditional in southern Thailand. Like the concept, the cramped basement space is unique; it adjoins legendary folk outlet Club Passim.
