Screw the hippy-dippy milieu: Native Foods is about chow as welcoming for your senses as it is for your health. Sure, their mission statement-"a prosperous lifestyle in harmony with the balance of nature and its energy through the wonders of food"-might be as hopelessly New Age-y as the menu and environs. Unlike most vegan mavens, though, chef Tanya Petrovna doesn't ditch the flavor while thinking of invigorating ways to fool flesh fanatics or improve your aura.
