Millennium is an upscale vegetarian restaurant, and while they offer a formal dining space, the environment is relaxed and comfortable. They offer exceptional gourmet vegetarian cuisine, and the menu changes in regard to what produce is in season. Millennium is also dedicated to sustainable agriculture, use organic produce whenever possible, and never use genetically modified foods.
The small plates were $4.50 to $8.95. I began my meal with the baby artichokes, which were braised in a savory lemon sauce with capers. Next up was the plantain torte, which is made with a wheat tortilla, sweet plantains, creamy cilantro-tofu, tropical fruit and tomato salsa fresca, and ancho chili and lime aioli. Both were incredible.
Entrees were $17.75 to $20.95. I ordered the Seitan au Vin, a seitan brisket in a rich zinfandel-mushroom sauce. It was a great main course and incredibly flavorful. It’s served surrounded by garlic mashed potatoes and sun-dried tomatoes with a walnut-olive tapenade. I also sampled the delectable porcini purse — a filo dough purse with porcini—Portobello mushroom ragout, barley-farro pilaf, Italian greens with currants and capers, celery root veloute, Himalayan black truffle-mushroom syrup, and smoked paprika oil inside.
Save room for dessert — Millennium’s dessert menu boasts bold innovative treats such as the Molé Brownie Sundae, comprised of a chili-spiced chocolate brownie, coconut-mint sorbet, roasted pineapple, and a caramel sauce.
The wine list is extensive at Millennium. All of their selections are made with organically grown grapes, and many are made using biodynamic production techniques. The wait staff is knowledgeable about which wine to choose for your dinner; our waiter recommended a sangiovese, Luna, Napa Valley 2001 that complimented my entrée beautifully.
