Fern's new lineup

Among the new from chef Drew Trepanier at vegetarian Fern: Broccoli Marrow ("slow-roasted confit of broccoli" with shallot jam, parsley salad and pumpernickel toast); ratatouille and parmesan hoagie; Drew's Signature Ramen (with fried seaweed, tofu and coconut froth); vegan pan paella; espresso fetuccine (whole wheat fettuccine, espresso, salbitxada and marinated asparagus salad); maple-glazed pumpkin filet and more. Wait, wait... did you want me to stop at salbitxada? That's a traditional Catalan sauce made with almonds and slightly hot peppers. 1323 Central Ave.; 704-377-1825.
