Millennium in San Francisco

The new Millennium residing near Union Square has received a makeover. All grown up, Millennium explores conscientious design with its new fishnet chandeliers, faux lizard skin seats, and recycled seat belt bar stools.

This fancy vegan restaurant is appealing to those who eat a produce-based diet.

If the freshly made artisan bread with nutty hummus spread doesn't start your dining experience off right, then try one of their reasonable priced appetizers. Try the herb olives ($5) marinated in rich organic olive oil. For a more heartier appetizer try the black bean torte ($9.95) whole wheat tortilla, black bean puree, and pumpkin habanero salsa verde.

Millennium's entrees are made with local and mostly organic produce, prepared in an array of different cuisines from around the world. Try their seared Emerald Rice Cake Indonesian red coconut curry with winter root vegetables, lemongrass tofu, bok choy & shiitake mushrooms, pineapple sambal, toasted peanuts ($22.95).

Dessert is a must have so make sure to leave some room. My personal favorite is their creamy Chocolate Almond Midnight ($8.75) with
almond cashew crust, mocha chocolate filling, raspberry sauce, white chocolate mousse. Wash it down with one of their classic cocktails with a healthy twist. Try the Chai Manhattan ($11.00) Maker's Mark Bourbon, Sweet Vermouth, Chai Spiced Tea, Ginger-Chamomile Syrup, Bitters.

From their greens to their recycled upper-crust decor, Millennium truly has something for everyone... even if your not vegan.
