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.

Such a great experience. Enjoyed the 10-course tasting + wine paring. Everything was INCREDIBLE! Cannot wait to go again with others to share such an exciting meal!

What a joke. Please update the menu. You start strong with the tower presentation then fall off a cliff. The broccoli was extremely salty. Carrot slider was on point...well done. The rest outside of the mushroom dessert was really average. Up your presentation game and get crafty with raw.

Wonderful way to spend Valentines Day! Loved the 9-course meal option, and the timing between courses was perfect and allowed for a lengthy dining experience. (And the snap pea cocktail is worth a try - very unique!).

Really fabulous tasting experience of creative vegan offerings. I would go for the 5 course over the 9 course menu. We had the 9 course and it was altogether too much. Too many flavors, too much food. It was actually a turn off.
The 5 course if perfect.
The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is spacious, comfortable and offers a sense of privacy in that you have personal space.
I love the neighborhood!
This is adventurous flavorful eating. It is vegan/vegetarian, but I hesitate to call it health food! far more decadent! Be prepared!

Valentine's Day prix fixe dinners are generally a sketchy proposition - too little food for too much money and quick-tongued service trying to accomplish high turnover. Rock Candy was none of these things. Each of the 10+ dishes was tasty and surprising, the wine pairings were generously applied, the staff was attentive and fun but not pushy. Two carnivores left very full and satisfied.

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.
