American Natural Food and Cafe
The chefs at American Natural Food & Cafe strive to expand American palates with a menu of dishes influenced by foods from all over the Mediterranean basin. A perennial list of French-inspired Moroccan cuisine—such as fava-bean soup or saffron-coated roasted chicken—anchors an ever-changing lineup of specials drawn from such countries as Spain, Egypt, and Libya.
For those inspired to whip up their own Mediterranean dishes at home, the eatery's grocery-store section provides aspiring chefs with spices and hand-selected, naturally raised foods from around the world. The packed shelves provide a backdrop to intimate tables lit by strings of lights and candlesticks, which, unfortunately, do not come to life to welcome you in song.
