Noah W.Noah Weiss: The best salad in Soho that won't cost you $20. Ignore the organic propaganda, just focus on how good it tastes. Guacamole greens, kale caesar, and whatever the monthly special is are great.

Damian B.Damian Bayona: Get the kale cesar and substitute out the parmesan cheese for extra veggies. The best of the salad bar restaurant chains.

Nancy A.Nancy Ackenhausen: Arrive before 12:15pm because the line gets really long. Harvest salad is amazing (kale, apples, chicken, sweet potatoes, almonds, goat cheese). Get with a chamomile mint iced tea.

Zach H.Zach Hamed: One of the few vegetarian places where you won't miss meat. Try the avocado and eggplant dips with tandoori bread, the kale salad, and the asparagus with crêpe — can't go wrong with any dish though.

ZZubinZZubin: It's true, you won't miss the meat. Egg was the highlight. Kale salad and the cauliflower buns were great as well.

ブルーノブルーノ: I'm a meat lover but this place is so good I didn't even miss it. The vegetarian dishes are delicious and so are the cocktails. Lively place (make a reservation!) and nice atmosphere. I will be back!

diana🦑diana🦑: Cauliflower was out of this world and carrot toast (awesome bread) and kale were great. Mushrooms were smoky and had a sort of meaty texture if that's what you want (but good still). Loved this place

Jessica H.Jessica Hann: Fresh, free range organic eggs, mushrooms from the mushroom stand, maple candy and whatever produce is beckoning (the last summer tomatoes this week) always top my "must buy," list on Saturdays.
