Keats is not a vegetarian restaurant -- there are several fish and meat dishes each day -- though nonmeat-eaters and vegans will feel at home. It follows the macrobiotic ethos of shunning artificial additives and refined sugars, and incorporating very little dairy food. That means the stews are thickened with soy milk rather than cream, and desserts sweetened with maple syrup.
