MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Unpretentious and welcoming, this is a vegan favorite with spot-on spicing and delicious surprises. The cream-colored interior is dim with dark velvet curtains and votive candles reflected in round mirrors. A thematically appropriate “living wall” resides in one corner of the space. The vibe may seem moody come evening, but the staff is always warm and affable. A black-eyed pea cake composed with crushed potatoes is pan-fried to render a golden breadcrumb exterior; while Moroccan tagine bobbing with chickpeas, a host of vegetables including carrots, turnips and zucchini, and topped with crispy tofu strips is all heart and soul. Come dessert, try the hand-churned cashew ice cream or a lemony cheesecake with a mixed berry reduction and coconut-cookie crust.
