"I had just written about Collective Espresso's second coffee shop when they opened their third, and it's so top-rate that I'm going back to them for this week's New Favorite Thing. This time it's the food, not the coffee, that got my attention. (Not that the coffee isn't excellent.) Their cafe in the new lobby of The Contemporary Art Center, Downtown, offers an excellent lunch. A friend and I had a bit of a mid-day feast, starting with a bowl of mildly-spiced walnuts (what a great snack with coffee) and hummus made with boiled peanuts, which tasted just like boiled peanuts, but acted just like hummus (and was garnished with pickled vegetables including sea beans)."
