For everyone thinks that eating vegetarian means eating strange salads, or that tofu is bland and unappetizing, Millennium proves them
wrong. Located in downtown San Francisco right by Union Square in the Savoy Hotel, Millennium
serves primarily vegetarian and vegan (no animal products) food in a chic and classy environment. The restaurant is a combination of classic elegance and
nouveau cuisine. It is decorated with dark wood paneling with tall ceilings and windows, small mirrors, and drapery muting the light, giving the restaurant
the feel of a Bohemian steakhouse. Millennium has a relaxing and easy ambience, with soft, soothing colors and very comfortable chairs. The restaurant has
and open kitchen so you can see the chefs at work, and the service is quick and friendly. If you want a unique yet comfortable dining experience, definitely
go to Millennium.
Unlike most other vegetarian restaurants, which can be very cheap and are usually poor quality, Millennium is chic and elegant and serves
very classy food. Rather than white rolls and butter, it serves a light wheat bread with a delicious hummus mousse, a great opener for the whole wonderfully
different dining experience. Millennium allows vegetarians to have as many fine choices of dining and flavors as everyone else. Even if you are not vegetarian,
you will enjoy the cuisine because of the interesting flavors and surprising combinations of ingredients along with the friendly and comfortable atmosphere.
Millennium is a great place to go in San Francisco because it is like nothing else; nowhere else is fine, gourmet vegetarian served in such
an upscale yet friendly environment. You do have to be an adventurous eater and be eager to try things you’ve never heard of, though, because the restaurant uses
a huge variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and other products in its intricate dishes. Most flavors (even the Caesar salad) are unlike anything you’ve ever
tasted before. There are definitely no traditional plates at this restaurant.
