It’s a food truck without the truck,” says chef Kajsa Alger of Blue Window. Her quick-serve spot is adjacent to Mud Hen Tavern, the restaurant co-owned by Susan Feniger where Alger also cooks, and the name befits the operation—a take-out window affixed to an otherwise empty blue wall in Hollywood.

It’s a simple concept: six items served in paper boats, each priced at $7, with a vegan version available on request. The menu’s theme changes every six months.

Hot Deal: As one of the heartier snacks, vegetable potstickers sing with a swipe of sweet red yam dipping sauce.

Try This: Whatever your stance on seafood, don’t skip the vegan Hawaiian poke. Pink cubes of braised daikon do an impressive job
