This highly-buzzed-about vegetable-forward restaurant and bar comes from Submarine Hospitality, the team behind Ava Gene’s. Executive Chef/Partner Sam Smith’s Israeli and Moroccan-inspired menu at Tusk features small plates and lighter fare highlighting local veggies and whole grains, like house-made pita with silky hummus, vibrant salads and skewered local meat and fish, finished with playful desserts, like soft serve sundaes.
