MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

It is highly rare for a tasting menu to leave one feeling—well—energized, but so goes the imaginative cooking at this vegetable gem. Who knew that turnip juice makes for good bread or that oysters can turn into a creamy and yet entirely creamless sauce? Chef Rob Rubba did, and his creations are delicious insights into what is possible with vegetables.

Thin strands of fried celery root weaved around smoked tofu and garnished with onion powder is delicate and replete with umami. Roasted lion’s mane mushroom with spring onion mole and black eye peas is a combination you didn’t know you were craving. Local farms are the very essence of this sustainable restaurant that even carnivores cannot deny its food is original, confident, and tastes as good as it looks.
