La Vida Vegan: Going Nuts

The Dish: Pistachio-crusted tofu with habanero grapefruit salsa and dijon lemon mustard sauce

The Spot: Kindred, 1503 30th Street, South Park

The Scene: The decor may be "goth cathedral," but it’s nothing but smiling faces in this new restaurant. There are several seating options including booths, bar seating, high tops, and a long community table. The wall of windows creates a fun indoor-outdoor dining experience.

The Bottom Line: The tofu is served and presented in a totally new way. The pistachio crust is surprisingly and pleasantly thick, providing a generous crunch before you taste the soft tofu. The grapefruit salsa resembles a pico de gallo, and its freshness balances out the creamy dijon sauce. The combination is light, satisfying, and stylish.
