The Greens (CLOSED)

Brooklyn Heights
The kitchen finds many ways to bring soy to the world. Specialties include exotic concoctions such as Festival in the Roll (an array of veggies in a thin soybean crêpe) and Three Musketeers (panfried soy protein, bean curd and seaweed). The chef plays around with a range of vegetables: meaty mushrooms and fresh spinach in basil sauce, or a succulent portobello-and-black mushroom burger. A good selection of wontons and dumplings nicely rounds out the menu. Our only caveat: Dishes advertised as spicy lacked firepower.
