Nominated for: BEST Vegan
Red Lentil is unique to Watertown and the surrounding area. We provide a warm atmosphere in which to enjoy creative and globally inspired vegetarian and vegan foods. Our aim to to please every customer that walks through our door. Our menu items are of the finest quality and are treated as such as they are prepared with sensitivity and care. Every three to four months, our menu will be updated to reflect the season; however the ‘favorites’ will remain the same. Daily specials are offered at lunch, dinner, and brunch. They are built around produce that is currently in season in New England, and they help to keep things new, and allow the chefs to exercise their creative whims.
Absolutely the best vegan restaurant I've been to in the US. They have better ones than Red Lentil in London and Paris, for some reason, but this in terms of quality and variety is the best around Boston. It can't be the quality or variety of the food that has people voting for Veggie Planet--which isn't even vegan!? It's true that all the wait staff at Red Lentil have real attitude problems and are puzzlingly rude (their job e.g. is not to instruct me about my diet or argue with me about my doctor's advice!). But I still took myself out to dinner there on my birthday. The very best food I've had from there was at an event they catered--delicious stuff I mostly hadn't seen on their restaurant menu.
