Blue Sage Vegetarian Grille is a hike for me. Over an hour. I know non-vegs would think it's crazy to drive that far for a restaurant, but when something is unique and good, most of the vegs I know, will travel great distances. We normally like to avoid eating at places that serve meat, so we have to drive way out of our neighborhood to dine out.
Last summer, I ventured out to Blue Sage with a few friends and after an amazing Craigslist find in that area, I went back with my husband for lunch. Both times, we had a great time and pretty good meals.
The place is cute, but a little tight on space. You'll be very cozy with your dining neighbors. One thing that I appreciate about the menu is that it has a distinctive personality that separates itself from the other veg restaurants in the area. There's no fake meat which is a refreshing gluten-free surprise. One other thing you need to know is that portions are HUGE! One appetizer can easily be a meal for two, so don't go too crazy when you order or you'll walk home with a grocery bag full of left overs. They do cook with eggs and dairy, so if you are vegan or lacto-veg, be sure to tell your server and they'll let you know if a dish is not for you. Vegan and vegan-izable dishes are marked on the menu. Oh yeah--make reservations for dinner!
My top pick for apps, the blue corn tacos (this is enough for a main entrée with the super yummy black eyed pea and corn salsa). For lunch, The Whistle Stop Sammy. For dinner, The Cubano Supper. And lastly, dessert, the Hazelnut Toffee Basket. Check out Yelp for other recommendations.
