Mary Dumont’s New American in the Ames hotel offers creative fare made with vegetables plucked from on-site hydroponic gardens, responsibly raised meats and a bar program that stresses botanical gins in inventive cocktails.
Must-order: We’re obsessed with the vibrant flavors of Dumont’s yakitori morels and fiddleheads, served with fava bean hummus that is spiced with lemon
thyme, furikake and Meyer lemon.
Insider tip: Though it’s easy to veer veggie here, don’t miss the meat dishes. Dumont put our past 30 Under 30 honoree Brian Young at the helm of a dry-aged program offering selections like the rib-eye for two, accompanied with bone marrow–roasted potatoes, pickled mustard seeds and, yes, loads of veggies.
