brownstone tavern.

a few weeks ago, we went out to dinner for the first time with the baybay ... we've hesitated since the pm isn't necessarily his best time of day. (witching hour, anyone??) but we picked a baby-friendly place to meet my cousins from out of town, so it was okay.

that baby-friendly place is brownstone tavern in lincoln square. what's brownstone all about, you ask? "the menu consists of superb bar fare including hearty sandwiches, fresh salads, miniwiches & mini tacos & unique specialties by our veteran chef." nice!

here's what i had ...

hummus & guacamole :
carrots, celery, cucumber, pita & tortilla chips.
this is kind of a perfect vegan appetizer. the guac was kind of weird, but de.licious. it was almost like a pico de gallo guac. awesome. 

barbacoa-less bowl :
veggies, black beans, roasted corn, pico de gallo, guacamole, cilantro rice. 
also quite tasty! the veggies included were kinda funny, but it was tasty, a large portion size & let's be honest ... a pretty nice, relatively healthy vegan meal for a bar! since i'm still all about the carbs, i especially enjoyed the cilantro rice. 

the staff at brownstone were super accommodating, easily answered my questions & quickly came up with the idea for my vegan entree. (josh thought that the manager was the same super nice manager from the now-closed mystic celt. (if so, this guy is on point with his vegan bar options.) thumbs up, brownstone!
