    Dirt Candy


Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Plant-based tastings downtown.

Chef Amanda Cohen’s Dirt Candy first opened in 2008, years before other restaurants were snapping up headlines for going plant-based. It’s updated its menu each season in the interim. Expect items like zucchini Rangoon spring rolls stuffed with cream cheese and eggplant caramelle on the five course, $95 per person menu.
