The menu, like the Old Town Calabasas restaurant, is large, and you get the feeling owners Robbie Schaeffer and Tim Rettele are trying to make sure there's something for everyone. There are a lot of small veggie plates — roasted baby carrots with orange and fennel pollen, stuffed squash blossoms, charred broccoli rabe, etc. A spring flatbread with sweet pea, kale, asparagus and broccoli was a fun study in green, the creamy burrata giving a hint of decadence to what was essentially a cooked salad atop thin bread. Among the almost 40 items on the menu are some health-conscious options, such as a quinoa bowl and the Forbidden Salad, a jumble of grilled tofu, red mizuna, arugula, carrots, kimchi, radish, shiitake mushroom, black rice and sesame. It worked in a kind of crazy, umami-intense way, and might have been my favorite of the things I sampled if it weren't oddly overly salted, mainly thanks to soy sauce. —Besha Rodell
