In Santa Fe, Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen was ahead of its time on both fronts. When Soma Franks opened the restaurant in 2012 with her friend Fiona Wong, they aspired to create a café around clean and healthy eating, not jump on any burgeoning trend. Their early menu denoted all the different realms each dish inhabited: gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, and so on. More than a decade later, Sweetwater is completely gluten-free and frequently recommended to those with celiac sensitivities who cannot dine where flours are used in any capacity. One bite of the chocolate pie—a go-to dessert for frequent diners—has convinced me that in some cases, no one will ever miss the dairy or gluten.
