What we thought: Gracias Madre serves delicious and thoughtfully prepared plant-based Mexican favorites.  The majority of their ingredients are locally sourced organic from Be Love Farm.  Servers were very willing to accommodate dietary restrictions and food preferences. Their nut-based "cheese" sauces and other dairy replacements are especially good.  However, be careful of the fried foods available on the menu.  Although they may be vegan and organic, fried foods are still not health promoting, although they are delicious.  Consume in moderation.
