They haven't invented the health-food restaurant that can truly satisfy an animal-fat-loving carnivore, but Candle Café (formerly the Healthy Candle) does as good a job as one can expect. Defying the stereotype of bland, leaden health food, Candle Café's macrobiotic vegetarian dishes are full-flavored and elegant, with interesting textures, and made from first-rate ingredients. It's the ideal place for vegans and carnivores to meet. For an hour or two, you won't miss regular food.


Reservations accepted only for parties of 3 to 8.
