The Farmer’s Apprentice
1535 W. 6th Ave., Fairview
As the name suggests, this is a laid-back, relaxed spot for a casual farm-fresh meal. Committed to serving only organic produce, The Farmer's Apprentice has three set menus to choose from for dinner based on whether you’re an herbivore, an omnivore, or going with the chef’s menu, which features a mix of both meat-based and vegetarian dishes. Plates could be winter greens with quince and pear, or crab, salsify, and leek. For a little more selection try their excellent weekend brunch. The fish cakes with salsa verde and perfectly poached eggs or the za’atar dusted rice bowl with eggs and cauliflower are flavorful and filling. Get the buttermilk biscuits on the side to keep you going all day.

Tojo is one of the longest standing restaurants in this sushi-happy city. Chef Tojo himself is approaching seventy, but still mans the sushi bar almost nightly, experimenting with new flavors like his ode to Canada: smoky eulachon fish and vegetables wrapped in quinoa. The menu is primarily omakase-based and represents the OG gold standard in a city with a sushi bar on every corner.
