Science Club – DC Vegetarian Restaurant Review

Science Club is a bar and restaurant that serves exclusively vegetarian and vegan food. My friends and I had dinner here to celebrate our vegetarian roommate’s birthday.

The meal started out with Tortilla Chips ($9) served with house-made guacamole. The guacamole was made of chopped veggies, rather then mashed avocados, which I had never seen before. The dish was good.

I got the Veggie Quesadilla ($9) filled with roasted red and green peppers, onions, monterey jack cheese, served with salsa and sour cream. The quesadilla was really disappointing. I could have made something better in my microwave. It was too cheesy and didn’t really have any flavor. This would have been better it there was more variety in the filling. There were barely and peppers or onions inside the quesadilla. Don’t get this dish unless you like bland food.

Rebekah had the Green Garden Roll ($7), which was made of rice paper filled with avocado, cucumber, tofu, carrots and mixed greens and served with Thai peanut sauce. Traditionally, this dish has shrimp in it, but because the Science Club serves only vegetarian items, the shrimp was replaced with avocado. The garden rolls were pretty bland as well. You could just tell that something was missing.

Jacqueline got the Grilled Margherita Tortilla Pizza ($10) which was topped with roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil and drizzled with olive oil. She liked the pizza. Although I didn’t try it, I imagine that I would have found the pizza bland, just based on my quesadilla and the photo above. The “roasted” tomatoes seem like they were just placed fresh on the pizza.

The birthday girl got the Homemade Veggie Burger and Fries ($13), served with lettuce, tomato, onions and vegan aioli served with a side salad. She’s a vegetarian and said it was good, but didn’t have a lot of toppings. The fries were addicting.

Overall, the food was disappointing and bland. However, my friend who had been to Science Club before said that the food she and her friends got last time was better. Maybe we ordered the wrong things. Nevertheless, there’s no excuse to serve bland food. However, Science Club is primarily a bar, so their drinks are hopefully better than their food, otherwise I don’t see them staying in business.

The setting and theme of Science Club make for a cool bar atmosphere. The main floor had a funky, haunted house feel to it. The lighting was low and lounge music played throughout. The lower level had another bar that resembled a frat house basement. The Periodic Table was postered to a wall to continue the theme.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Food: 1/5

Ambiance: 4/5
