Turning “preconceived notions of vegan food on their head” , this “cozy” East Villager crafts plant-based small plates that are “exquisite for the eye and palate” , served up in “rustic” digs with a kitchen-facing bar; the check “can add up fast” , but to most the “provocative” experience is “worth the extra cash.”

The food and service here are excellent. What else needs to be said? The menu never ceases to impress... I never knew vegetarian food could be so good before I came here! The waitstaff here is also delightful. They even remembered our party from last time! Needless to say, we are all loyal repeat customers. A note: parties of 6 or more may be required to get the $55/person group menu (which we were totally fine with), so that is something to keep in mind if it is an issue or if a large group wanted to get just a quick bites.

The food was amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. Although it was probably hard to make a bad recommendation because everything we had was very good. The celery root was excellent. I'm usually a big meat eater but I did not miss meat at all.

Went here for a work holiday party. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves, and had a tasting menu. I'd never been to a vegan restaurant before so was a little skeptical, but was SO SO happy with the result. The food was DELICIOUS and the server explained everything in meticulous detail. One of the people in our party was gluten free and the restaurant was gladly able to accommodate for every dish. Would definitely go again on my own.
