Vegetarians and carnivores will be happy to break bread at this award-winning vegetable restaurant.
Even though Dirt Candy honors and elevates the simple, earthy bounty of vegetables, the (newish) space is bright, breezy, and clean. The menu hosts a collection of fun fonts for each dish while the back is filled with restaurant trivia (for example, ConEd was five months late in turning on the gas). And while dishes like Smoked Broccoli Dogs or Carrot Sliders might satisfy (or trick) both vegetarians and carnivores alike with their “meatiness,” experiencing the Brussels sprout tacos, served on a hot sizzling stone (a la the fajitas of your favorite Tex-Mex place) and replete with all the accoutrement, will truly make anyone a believer in the power of veggies. Bring a few friends and take your time because you’ll want to taste everything on the menu.
Bitesee Tip: Before you leave, purchase chef Amanda Cohen’s graphic novel cookbook of the same name.
