|Mushroom flatbread at Robust.|
Though not listed on the menu, the parsnip purée is one of Chef Hemp's special creations for vegetarian customers. Parsnips, yellow bell peppers and shiitake mushrooms are roasted in a light brown butter glaze, served on the parsnip purée. Robust's signature taste comes back into play here with a rich, sweet and creamy purée balanced nicely with an assortment of savory vegetables. To order this item or any other specialty item, specify your dietary restrictions to your server and the chef will whip up something just for you.
While Robust's two locations, Webster Groves and downtown, currently have identical menus, Chef Hemp told Gut Check that the menus will evolve separately over time, as the Robust Webster Groves location has all electric appliances and Robust downtown cooks exclusively with gas. Both locations will continue to serve its signature house dishes, such as the meat-free spinach and artichoke dip, but other items will vary.
