If you are curious about Dirt Candy, the hip new vegetarian restaurant by former Pure Food and Wine chef Amanda Cohen, than check out the blog Umamimart. They have posted a great first look at some of the food being served, like jalapeno hush puppies with maple butter, and stone ground grits with pickled shiitake and a tempura poached egg. I may love meat, but not a single one of the dishes they tried looked anything less than amazing.
