Re: “No missing the meat: Durham's Vegan Flava Cafe is one of the Triangle's best new restaurants

We are thankful that Vegan Flava Cafe is here. My family loves the warm welcome that is always extended by Yah-I & Maat, "Goddess" Deborah, Raj, and team, the quality healthful food, and the community that they are forming, including providing a space for talks and classes. Triangle Vegetarian Society hosts the country's largest vegetarian Thanksgiving (http://trianglevegsociety.org/thanksgiving), and this year we featured Vegan Flava as our first Pre-Thanksgiving feast. Thanks for the article about the restaurant! --Dilip Barman, President, Triangle Vegetarian Society

Re: “Durham's Kathy Hester is the queen of vegan slow-cooking. Don't be scared.

Thanks for profiling Kathy's fabulous talents. Her books are beautifully illustrated with her gorgeous food photography of her tasty creations.

Re: “Restaurant options near RDU, from quick and cheap to leisurely and upscale

Thanks for this keeper; it is worth saving for visitors coming to the area. Don't forget one of my favorite restaurants, Tower. It is about 3-5 minutes from curbside checkin just down the street (Aviation Parkway? Blvd?) from RDU and offers excellent South Indian cuisine. The price is quite affordable and the service is attentive, friendly, and fast - and they have a great lunch buffet. BTW, there are a significant number of vegetarians or those who want to eat more vegetarian -- perhaps it should be a regular inclusion on articles like this as to what plant-based options there are. Thanks!

Re: “Foraging for vegetarian fare

Thanks for your nice cover article, Claire. I do consider myself lucky to live in this area and find it easy to find great vegan food. My favorite pizza in the Triangle is at Panzanella - they have vegan pesto as a staple and their pesto pizza without cheese and your choice of toppings is always very good and sometimes excellent!! Lilly's Pizza has many good vegan options, and great homemade Italian food is to be had at Trilussa. I love the Indian vegetarian restaurants that we are lucky to have, especially Tower. It's difficult to go out and not find a number of vegan choices. I'd be remiss not to mention my food blog, dilipdinner.blogspot.com. I've known my wife almost 4 years and I've not repeated a dinner for her yet! I do all the cooking and it's all vegan without the use of tofu.

Re: “Thanksgiving reservations

Thanks for the mention of our event. We actually have one extended seating starting at 12:30 but if we go beyond 400 folks, which it looks almost certain that we will any day now, we may open up a second evening seating. It's a nationally known event - join us!

Re: “For the week of 11.22 ~ 11.28

As of 6p on Wed night, it looks like we have a (very) few seats left. Check out our website for the full details: www.trianglevegsociety.org/thanksgiving06 .
