The food here is fresh and no matter what your dietary preference, you will find something. Vegan, vegetarian or typical American food, are all available here. The grilled vegetable burger (no meat) is really good. So was the vegetarian coconut and chick pea soup.

If you are at the Musical Instrument Museum this is a great place to eat. Many selections including vegetarian at reasonable prices. Wine, though, is $9 for not much.
