Foursquare Tips

  • Such an amazing vegan restaurant. We sat right in front of the chef and loved his energy. Of course, the food was amazing! Get the kale panzanella salad for sure.
  • What Dirt Candy should have beenbest vegan restaurant I've been to, and great date spot. Get the pea toast, oyster mushrooms, and roasted cauliflower. Gewrztraminer white pairs well.
  • Great date vibes with an all vegetarian menu, plus the option of fancy wines. Win-win for your pickiest veggie date and or friend.
  • If you're with the kind of person that can't make decisions and orders everything like a psycho, prepare to eat at least 3-4 toasts. Tip: Sit at the bar, it's entertaining to watch them cook here.
  • Everything. Try the beets, mango, avocado, black sesame, tamari...
  • Every dish was so fresh and delicious! Tapas style so plan to get a couple of dishes each.
  • Love this little place. The plates are like tapas portion so make sure to share an extra plate with your friends. The kitchen is completely open and you can see how they make everything in front you.
