Dirt Candy was, by far, one of the best dining experiences I have ever had! The food was excellent and the service was great. I can't think of anything negative to report about my experience. I dined with 3 friends and tried several different dishes on the menu. I was the only vegan, but Dirt Candy can make every meal on the menu vegan! We started with the hush puppies, which I didn't try but my friends raved about them. Our server brought me vegan maple butter for the bread--I could have eaten the butter with a spoon! We had the mushroom and the potato appetizer, both were delicious (and I am not a fan of mushrooms, but I couldn't stop eating it). For entrees we had the beets, beans and broccoli. The broccoli was outrageous! Smoked broccoli with kraut on a bun! For dessert I had the sweet pea ice cream which was was very tasty. Our bill, which included 2 bottles of wine, was just over $200.--very reasonable for a great night with delicious food and wonderful service at a "specialty" restaurant in NYC. I will be making my next reservation for Dirt Candy today..only wish there wasn't a 2 month wait list!
