Dirt is all about inclusivity. Yes, the eatery offers açaí bowls and cold-pressed juices, but as cofounder and general manager Jeff Latulippe puts it: "This is a place where our dads can go." And it’s true — at this fast-casual South Beach spot, you can order a steak-and-cheese sandwich; the difference here is the steak is grass-fed, the tomatoes are locally grown, and the nutritional information is visible for all to see. Indeed, Dirt has four menus: vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and Paleo. That said, the restaurant's mission to serve clean, affordable food doesn’t stand in the way of flavor. For instance, the seasonal plate — containing a root vegetable mash, spicy grilled kale, shaved carrots, pomegranate, and, on a recent day, orange basil chicken — is bright, light, and surprisingly hearty. If you didn't just go up to the counter and order it, you'd think you were eating at a fine-dining establishment.
