There are some nights where I want to be social and meet friends for dinner, but I also want to be healthy without being completely lame and taking them to get salads at Chop't or Sweetgreen. That's where The Little Beet Table came in and saved my life. This is my go-to spot for that weeknight dinner where I need to chill out from putting extremely greasy, caloric foods into my body, and instead focus on fresh ingredients and nutrients without eating straight kale or dressing-less salads. The chef at The Little Beet Table gets really creative with the menu and makes nutritional foods into delectable masterpieces.

...with popcorn, seeds, red onion, dill, grilled bread and vegetable crudites. The dill gives this dish a nice pop and all the textures combine so nicely. Honestly, when I read "cauliflower hummus" I was not sold (lol of course... too healthy sounding) but WOW this is a new favorite. Such a great starter for yourself or dinner with friends. If you go alone, you could honestly eat this as an entrée if you're trying to just grab a quick bite.
Arctic char crudo
Fresh, light and flavorful.
Crispy Pearl Rice
This is a MUST. But definitely share. I got a little too carried away with this as a starter. It's much more of an entrée. My favorite thing on the menu.
Roasted shrimp salad
The salads here are always reliable. You can't really go wrong.
Chipotle Pork Carnitas Tacos
Now we're getting a little more on the indulgent side...but that's why this place is awesome. It's got everything.
Happy Valley Grass-fed double burger
I mean, I had to try the burger, too....
