Best of Boston

1996 Best Macrobiotic Menu

Ritz-Carlton Dining Room

Good-for-you health food at the ritzy old Ritz? It’s our guess that as successful babyboomers start to sag, they head back to their root vegetables for rejuvenation. But don’t be fooled, the days of bland brown rice and tepid tofu are long gone. Take, for example, a Vegetarian Primavera with Roasted Bell Pepper Coulis or delicious Crab Cakes with Pickled Plum Sauce and Braised Napa Cabbage. After a macrobiotic lunch you’ll have the energy (and the slim waist) to shop your way down Newbury Street. The menu changes weekly and it’s $29 prix fixe for a three-course lunch or dinner.
