At Alatri Bros., vegetables go from humdrum to yum on the “Eat Your Veggies” board. Multicolored carrots roasted with salt, pepper, olive oil and salsa verde, and sprinkled with house-made quinoa brittle, are transformational. Roasted beets come with knobs of goat cheese and mint leaves, the fried cauliflower arrives lightly battered, and the whole shebang gets even better with a dip of whipped feta veiled with honey and cracked black pepper. You’ll never miss the meat.
