Best $8 You'll Ever Spend On Your Health

Casa de Luz

Even after they tell you the names of the foods on your plate, you won't know what half of them are: a bowl of miso-wakame soup, adukis, millet, collards, root vegetable nishime, burdock-hiziki medley, and a little umeboshi pickle. Yeah, right. Whatever it is, it looks beautiful and tastes delicious and is arguably some of the very finest macrobiotic cooking available in the United States. Casa de Luz offers a prix fixe plate lunch and dinner weekdays, and a buffet brunch weekends in a serene, friendly setting behind a Montessori school. If communal tables and New Age music are not for you, there's always take-out.
