Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

With a full two hours of table time from the start of your reservation, this modern-rustic European-style café encourages you to slow down and savor your meal—and there's so much to savor. A small vegetarian restaurant with cocoa-colored walls and exposed-filament Edison bulbs over each table, Natural Selection serves a four-course, fixed-price menu (available with or without wine pairings) 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.
