I had a delicious lunch at Harvest Cambridge with three lovely ladies on Friday. We just barely caught the end of Restaurant Week and I'd been meaning to try Harvest-so best to do it when there's a discounted Prix-fixe!! The menu had vegan-friendly options, which I loved! The appetizer was a Market Greens Salad with candied walnuts and granny smith apple. Yes, my dressing is on the side. Salad Dressing doesn't do anything for me. I know that I may not be absorbing all the fat-soluble vitamins without it, but I just don't enjoy having that texture on my greens! Besides Mustard, Braggs, and Balsamic Vinegar- I'm not a condiments type of girl. The entree was a Forbidden Black Rice Tart which had Baby Carrots, Baby Turnips, Bok Choy & Hen of The Woods Mushrooms. It was so rich tasting! The forbidden rice was perfectly cooked, and we deduced that the orange oil was a Toasted, Roasted Peppper Oil. So good!
My third course was a delicious Raspberry Sorbet served with a Sesame Almond Crisp. Delicious!!Yes, it probably did have white sugar. But there's an exception to every rule, and fabulous meals out tend to allow for bending. Its all about moderation.
The atmosphere and decor was great-wonderful tans and browns. I loved their open kitchen. The lunch was much cheaper than it would have been- $20 for a three-course lunch. MMMM-the perfect study break.
