I had an apple jack to drink and, seafood stew for dinner. The flavors were robust and savory. My daughters had 2 gluten free items and they raved about them. I would return here again and again.

I became a vegetarian in the late 1970s, and everyone had a Moosewood cookbook. I was thrilled to learn the restaurant was still around and we had to go twice. The first night they had live folk music -- not my favorite-- but we were...More

Now I ate the food. No doubt that there is a reason there is a cookbook. Highly recommend this restaurant. Being from New Mexico, I know greatly flavored good.
