The small market inside Botanica bodes of great things to come when you eat here: local produce, biodynamic wines, freshly-baked bread and Middle Eastern spices. Whether eating in the luminous dining room or the plant-adorned patio, you’ll find the menu abundant with vegetarian options, while still offering choice cuts for omnivores. The cassoulet vert is a brightly herbaceous affair with heirloom beans in a garlicky pistou with fresh greens, while the beautifully spiced lamb skewers are a win with a sumac yogurt and a towering salad on top.
