39. Local Farmer's Delight at 1500 Degrees
This ain't no freakin' salad, that's for sure. The Local Farmer's Delight ($20) is listed on the menu as "seasonal vegetables and specialty grains," but we know this plate packs much more. Obviously the offerings vary depending on seasonality and availability, as is the way with everything at 1500, but diners can expect to see a prismatic selection of more than a dozen items. The night we tried this entree, we got shaved asparagus, Anson Mills polenta, roasted garlic, corn, a roasted tomato, myriad mushrooms, bok choy, edamame, potatoes, and purple and orange carrots, but the chefs have also been known to throw some broccoli rabe, English peas, wild ramps, cauliflower, eggplant confit, baby onions, fennel and even fava beans on there. Yep, even vegans are crushing on executive chef Paula DaSilva and her crew.
