MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

We all know that vegetables are good for us, but Dirt Candy shows us how good they can also taste. Chef Amanda Cohen’s menu never hides the fact that you’re eating vegetarian (and vegan) cuisine, but with her ethical approach and haute techniques, these simple-seeming eats are transformed into artistic bites. Robata-grilled sugar snap peas wrapped in yuba tastes as good as Peking duck, while the carrot slider is as tender and satisfying as a Big Mac. The vegetables aren’t just for dinner either—they also star in desserts like hot chocolate, which incorporates mushroom cream, as well as cocktails that employ everything from cucumber to artichokes to popcorn. The tasting menu ensures that you'll be able to sample a wide variety with five or nine courses.
