LHC Restaurant Review

: LHC’s origins in a tiny grocery store forever linked it to local ingredients and a bit of quirkiness. Its current iteration --- specializing in to-go and delivery orders --- keeps the focus on healthy preparations. Dual emphasis on meats (the burger is a perennial favorite) and vegetarian dishes (spinach and mushroom lasagna with sage béchamel) please both camps, and vegans have much to celebrate, too, like the spaghetti and “meatballs” in marinara. Vegetables cultured in-house are a specialty, impressive considering the aromas sauerkraut and kimchi can generate. For brunch, come early to ensure there are still enough biscuits and gravy to go around, or sleep late and content yourself with the spicy vegan chorizo in a potpie or burrito. An interesting menu of smoothies and fresh-pressed juices (in flavors like Kaley’s Comet, with apple, kale, lemon and ginger) is available starting at 8 a.m. on weekdays.
