Fodor's Review

One of the best, most inspired vegetarian restaurants outside California, Dirt Candy shines thanks to chef Amanda Cohen, who knows how to coax every bit of flavor out of vegetables so that they dazzle on the plate and the palate. Some of the standouts include jalapeño hush puppies (with maple butter), cauliflower curry (with a green-pea paneer), and magnificent Brussels sprouts tacos.
