Dirt Candy Restaurant Review

: Chef Amanda Cohen's vegetarian restaurant has evolved from 18 to 60 seats, moving from the East Village to the Lower East Side. The menu at Dirt Candy version 2.0 offers some old favorites, but there are plenty of new dishes as well. At dinner, opt for The Vegetable Patch ($57, tip is included) or The Vegetable Garden ($83, tip is included), both multi-course. Expect items like carrot sliders on carrot buns, pumpkin pad thai and cabbage hot pot. A full bar and wine are available.
