Little Gem on Union Street feels like some sort of restaurant from the future when the science of optimization and the art of feng shui are one and the same. It’s all shiny and white, there are lots of plants, and you get the feeling that everyone in this place loves to listen to whale sounds in their spare time. The menu is pretty health-centric with things like broth and green juice available, but they also have larger dishes like bibimbap with seasonal vegetables, brown rice, and salmon tartare. It’s the kind of food you try to cook for yourself on weeknights when you want to be more healthy, only this place is actually good at it.
