Vital Root

Justin Cucci's Edible Beats restaurant group (with Root Down, Linger and Ophelia's already in the bag) turned its attentions toward the casual side of dining with this meatless eatery on Tennyson Street. All the fun and flavor of the group's previous efforts are there, plus cold-pressed juices and nut milks, a focus on health and a full complement of plates of all sizes to get you through the day. International flavors punch up dishes like an Indian breakfast dosa with sambar and mint chutney in the morning, a tofu banh mi with delicious yuca fries for lunch, and vibrant stir-fries packed with the spices of Thailand and Korea for dinner. You'll feel so good that a low-alcohol cocktail — made with those cold-pressed juices — won't induce guilt.
