Presentation was a huge part of the dining experience at Ubuntu. Walking in the door we were greeted with a very open space, a stark contrast to the narrow Main St. the restaurant sits on. The colors are warm and inviting, with earth-tones aplenty. After we're seated and order, the bread arrives warm and the butter is soft.
What I took away from this meal is just how vibrant everything tasted without the introduction of a heavy piece of meat along-side it. Each bite was bursting with earthy flavors that would be otherwise hidden if the various greens were soaked in the juices of a steak or mixed with the sauces that dress chicken. I think the dishes would work with fish, but again that's not the point. Ubuntu celebrates the food exactly as it is grown and carefully crafts its dishes so that nothing is missed through the experience.
