I'm sure this board will be useful to me and many others. I'd like to start off by giving a shout out to the Woodfire Grill in Atlanta; I meant to post about my experience there last month on another thread, but never got around to it. DH and I were going to be in town for spring break, and our daughter had had a recent (non-vegan) meal there while visiting a friend. I called ahead and asked if they could accommodate a vegan, and they said "sure," Did they, ever! 5 course vegan tasting menu with wine pairings. Everything was sublime, and my omnivore husband enjoyed his meaty main, as well. I can't recommend this place enough.

    I second the "Thank you"! Very excited.

      Glad you're happy about the board, pikawicca. Remember, though, that posts about specific restaurants will still belong on the appropriate regional board (so a report on Woodfire Grill in Atlanta belongs on the Atlanta board).

      If there are questions about this, feel free to ask them in this Site Talk thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/844507

          I love the home cooking board but it is super exciting to have a vegetarian and vegan board, being vegan just got even more interesting I think.

              This is great news. Many thanks. Although we are basically omnivores we Love our veggies too and have many meatless meals during the week.

                              +1--years ago the then-management of Chowhound believed a vegetarian board was too "niche". Whether it's been rethought or there are just more of us, I'm delighted.

                                Thank you indeed! I'm a fairly new vegan on the Engine 2 plan. Engine 2 is also low fat and so my interest is low fat/no fat cooking and also tips on how to order at restaurants.

                                  Huzzah! I read CH religiously before and after going vegan. This is just the cherry on top!
