Eco-chic health food. This chain was co-founded by Dr. Andrew Weil, the health food guru, so dishes here reflect the “anti-inflammatory” diet he prescribes. You’ll find some delicious here. The menu is seasonal and changes regularly, so if the terrific edamame dumplings, grab them. Same for the burger, herb hummus...
