This trendy celebrity-magnet restaurant's organic and vegan menu continually wins converts—especially for the piccata with lemon-caper sauce. (Yes, the piccata’s vegan; it’s made with grain-and-vegetable Gardein Veggie Chick’n Breasts.) No one disputes Sublime’s “tanjito” cocktail, a mojito variation made with fresh mint, fresh lime, tangerine juice, sugarcane, and white rum. And who knows, you just might run into Pamela Anderson, Alec Baldwin, or Alicia Silverstone.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
