Farestart for lunch (Seattle)

My husband and I went to Farestart in Seattle for lunch today. I haven't been there in a long time. Service was very friendly and efficient. I had the Founder's Field Roast Sandwich - hazelnut-encrusted lentil sage patty, served crispy with arugula, tomato, vegan fig mayonnaise and dijon mustard on potato bread (vegan). It was really delicious. The fig mayo had a nice sweetness and the patty was great. My husband had the Veggie Reuben -sliced vegetarian sun dried tomato “field roast” served Reuben-style with sauerkraut, swiss
cheese, and thousand island dressing on marble rye bread. That was also really good. We both got the french fries which were crisp and yummy.

I had a really hard time deciding between a couple of items on the menu. The blackened salmon sandwich sounded really delicious as did the vegetable polenta with sunny side up egg. I'm hoping to go back soon so I can try the polenta. Anyone else been recently?

  1. I've been twice within the last month, had the Veggie Reuben the first time, and the Founder's Field Roast sandwich the 2nd. Both were excellent. I was telling a friend yesterday that I wouldn't be able to decide which one to get next time I went. She said she'd go with and order one, I'd could get the other and we'd split them. Problem solved! I can't wait to go back. Service was top notch also. The room and menu is a vast improvement over their old location.
