Had a fancy lovely vegetarian lunch yesterday with friends at Rozelle Court, the fabulous restaurant at the Nelson Atkins Museum. There's nothing fabulous about the long lines at the cafeteria style service, but the setting is magnificent. It's the courtyard of the museum that has been roofed so it can be used year round. The menu is always topnotch- even if its served cafeteria style. I had black bean hummus with pita, and eggplant and tomatoes over rice and peas. I had my Indian entree accompanied by really nice cabernet. For dessert, a scrumtious chocolate bread pudding. I didn't feel the least bit deprived skipping the chicken. I'm finding that a vegetarian diet expands my options, rather than limiting them.
