Natural Selection Review
This rustic European-style café proves you don't need meat to create a meal you'll want to write home about. A small vegetarian restaurant with coca-colored walls and exposed-filament Edison bulbs over each table, Natural Selection serves a four-course, fixed-price menu whose brilliance rests in the pure and natural flavors of its ingredients. Assembled in new combinations—tomato almond soup with fennel, parsnip and watercress, for example, or chard gnocchi with winter squash, apple, basil and balsamic vinegar—the ingredients, which change by season, send your taste buds on lovely explorations with each bite. With a full two hours of table time from the start of your reservation, this restaurant encourages you to slow down and savor your meal.
