way back in october (what?!) … i had a post-manicure, pre-rehearsal dinner lunch with my now sister-in-law (hi, hannah!) + the rest of the bridal party gang at wilde bar & restaurant in lakeview.
wilde is “upscale irish bar & restaurant” where “chef henry pariser & the whole staff are waiting to serve you some of the most exquisite cuisine that would make oscar himself proud.” wowie. it’s not everyday you see “irish bar” + “exquisite cuisine” in the same description.
wilde does have a separate vegetarian menu … so i figured i might be in good hands with regards to a vegan option. there were two … the first was a vegan irish curry. as much as i love curry, couldn’t get behind this idea. so here’s what i had …
here’s the thing. wilde is good. but. (it’s a big but.) it’s located right next door to the new location of kitchen 17. it was literally painful to be so close & not get to eat some of my favorite vegan grub. i mean, i did have to take professional photos & fit into a bridesmaid dress the very next day, so skipping pizza + burgers for a buddha bowl was probably the best thing for me. but you’re not me. so i’ll leave the call up to you.
