Cutting edge vegetables with added flavor and no politics in this sleek and stylish restaurant showcasing colorful, pop-tastic dishes from award-winning chef, Amanda Cohen. A full bar, counter seating, a wine list curated by sommelier Lauren Friel, and vegetables in all their earth-shattering, gob-smacking glory. Dirt Candy offers an a la carte menu at the bar and at brunch. Diners coming for dinner will have a choice of The Vegetable Patch ($57, tip included) featuring five courses of Dirt Candy’s greatest hits, or they can take a trip to The Vegetable Garden ($83, tip included) which is at least nine courses and changes according to the season, what we’re experimenting with, and what our foragers and farmers bring to our door.

As always Amanda delivers on a promise... The tasting menu for Valentine’s Day was amazing, creative, and fun. There’s not a day that isn’t a good day for Dirt Candy.

This was a pre-birthday treat from a friend--she was convinced we would not get reservations... but I am an infuriating optimist; and yes, we got reservations for that afternoon. Brunch was excellent--excellent choices (did not make it easy to choose), unusual pairings and flavors, very reasonably priced, and there was just a LOT of food! Really, Dirt Candy is a treat!

This place really knows vegetables. I loved every dish and it was such a pleasure not to have to think about what to order. Tasting menus are fun.

Amazing! Creativity and taste of the food, quality of the service and presentation, all was awesome. My new favorite vegetarian dinner spot by a long shot. Crazy good.

4.5 Stars- This was such a delightful and unique experience. I felt like the food really didn't take itself too seriously. Some of the highlights were the carrot sliders (served in adorable takeout type containers), the beets were by far the best I have ever had. Every course was an innovative and had great ingenuity. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was that not every single dish was a success, but I so appreciate all of the thought and effort that went into each and every thing that crossed our plates.

We had the 8-9 course offering, and it was an amazing experience. Full of fun and amusing moments, not something I can say about most meals I go out to eat. My only major critique is that 2 dessert courses was simply too much, in my opinion.

The food creativity was good but only few of the items are worth eating out of vegetable garden menu.

A friend of mine recommend this restaurant even if I am not a vegeterian. She was so right!
Delicious the entire dinner.
I am a gluten free so the dishes were sometimes a little bit different from my husband’s but overall well balanced. Loved my dinner at Dirt Candy!

Absolutely fantastic. I would go back any time. The "small" menu is A LOT of food - and not a single wrong note.

Some of the most creative and delicious vegetarian food we've ever had! May seem a little expensive but absolutely worth it! The $57 vegetable patch option was an adventure from start to finish and so much more food than we were expecting. Extremely memorable dinning experience!
