Gourmet vegetarian food
This new gourmet vegetarian restaurant features many edgy dishes made with flair and style. Every item on the menu can be prepared vegan.
The head chef, Amanda Cohen, simply wants to make vegetarian food but does not want to cater to a "lifestyle" or a "diet." She studied at the Natural Gourmet Cooking school and previously worked at Angelica's Kitchen, Teany, and Pure Food and Wine, among others. According to the restaurant website, the chef/owner's philosophy is, "I don't care about your health. And I don't care about your politics either. But I do care about cooking vegetables. Most of the best vegetarian dishes I've eaten have been at non-vegetarian restaurants . . . . Just as BLT Fish is dedicated to seafood, and Peter Luger's is dedicated to steak, Dirt Candy is dedicated to vegetables."
