WILD

Featured lunch items are Wild arugula salad, tomato soup and grilled cheese, egg salad sandwich made with free range eggs, organic celery and Dijon mustard, and grilled chicken sandwich using antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken breast. Among the dinner items are Wild mushroom herb pasta, spaghetti limone parmigiano, Wild white pizza (mozzarella, white truffle ricotta, cracked pepper), roasted seasonal veggie pizza and chicken tikka masala pasta. Popular salads are kale with smoked tofu, quinoa, Caprese, Simple Beet with warm goat cheese, and fig. Dairy-free smoothies include Kitchen Sink (acai, bananas, peaches, strawberry, avocado), The Elvis with peanut butter, bananas and dates, and Get Wild with spinach and goji berries. The bar menu has five small plates for $5 each: roasted garlic hummus, chicken lettuce wraps and Wild nachos. Be sure to enjoy one of the desserts from pastry chef Tatiana Lewis, including cupcakes (carrot cake, chocolate) vegan maple pecan pie or canoli with pistachios and ricotta.
