Few things are more beautiful than the displays of vibrant fruits and vegetables at local farmers' markets. The flavors, colors, textures and scents inspire us to keep cooking, day after day after day... Join us for a 100% plant based dinner filled with local produce, where everything is made from scratch with all our love and care (cliché but true). Shared family style, because good company is the essential seasoning to any good meal. We look forward to sharing our food obsessions with you!

Menu detail

Sparkling Carrot Tonic
House made tonic from fresh carrots, juniper berries, cinchona bark... topped with sparkling mineral water for a refreshing botanical non alcoholic aperitif. (see below for the boozy version of this drink)
Bread and Butter
Small Plate
Our freshly baked sourdough bread and olive oil butter. Simple yet indispensable.
Buttermilk Chopped Salad
Small Plate
A selection of crunchy raw and pickled vegetables and lettuces from the farmers' market dressed in our addictive herbed buttermilk ranch dressing.
Gnocchi e Pepe
Fluffy potato gnocchi, seared shishito peppers and petite tomatoes, green peppercorn and fermented tofu cream, sourdough breadcrumbs and basil. Slight notes of "cheesy funkiness" from a cultured amaranth extract we deglaze the gnocchi sauté pan with. A nontraditional nod to the Roman dish "cacio e pepe" for peppercorn lovers.
Roasted Summer Squash
Small Plate
Summer squash glazed with a sherry-homemade miso sauce, roasted, and served with an herb-packed Arbequina olive oil (looser than a pesto and made without pine nuts).
Berry Shortcake
Sourdough biscuits, end of summer berry compote, soy milk yogurt and salted nut clusters.
