You don’t need to be a vegetarian to hang with chef/owner Cassie Piuma on her wild ride from Spain to Turkey to Morocco and everywhere in between: She also cooks plenty of great meat and seafood small plates. But is there another local place that treats vegetable-lovers better, with a more vibrant spice palette or wittier meldings of tradition and invention? Sample her seven-layer hummus, asparagus shakshuka and zucchini mucver, and your answer will be no, too.
