I finally dined at The Blue Star this week!
So, back to the food.
Tuesday night Dave and I explored more of vegan Colorado Springs; we dined at The Blue Star for the first time. This is an upscale restaurant in Colorado Springs that we’ve heard wonderful things about but had never actually eaten there (though we have frequented the cocktail lounge side of the house for wine and noshing). Not at all a vegan restaurant, they are very vegan-friendly. There was one appetizer and one entrée already vegan but our server suggested I take a look at the entire menu and if I wanted the kitchen to try something to let them know. I did and the result was wonderful.
I asked them to veganize the Fried Green Tomato Salad entrée and turn it into an appetizer.
They held the egg wash step when frying the tomatoes and served it with pumpkin pesto, black bean coulis and tofu cheese. I just might double that up and have it as an entire meal next time. It was delicious.
I ordered the melon salad, hold the cheese.
I ordered the one vegan entrée, Oyster Mushroom Huitlacoche over Masa Cakes
The Blue Star is a wonderful dining experience for plant-based diners – just call ahead, make a reservation and note that you’re vegan. Then enjoy!
