Seed Kitchen: Venice's Macrobiotic Vegan Cafe

We were offered a hosted lunch at Venice's Seed Kitchen, the newish Japanese-American fusion vegan macrobiotic restaurant brought to you by Sanae Suzuki and her husband Eric Lechasseur (formerly of M Cafe de Chaya). So we thought, why the heck not? By the way, this review is completely from the standpoint of a non-veggie. But here's a review of Seed by an actual vegan from to give you that perspective, too.

We dragged a friend with us to visit the restaurant on a weekday. Our friend is more into the healthy food than we are, she being a regular Whole Foods and farmers' market shopper, so we figured she'd be able to lend a more knowledgeable perspective on whether the non-meat tastes good or not.
