Parsnip purée at Robust.

The very garlicky truffled white-bean hummus ($7) -- a cannellini purée with white truffle oil -- is laden roasted red peppers, feta and kalamata olives, and served with pita bread. The pita is served warm, providing a satisfying juxtaposition of cold, creamy hummus and fresh-from-the-oven bread.

The intermingling flavors of sweet and savory seem to be Robust's signature taste, and are certainly present in the restaurant's popular mushroom flatbread entrée ($14). Roasted mushrooms, caramelized onions, house-made ricotta cheese, pea shoots and a sherry vinaigrette sit atop warm flatbread. You can get traditional flatbread or, for a gluten-free option, cornbread instead.
