The Nature Conservancy recognizes restaurants throughout the country that fit the ideal of “Green Restaurants” with the 2013 Nature’s Plate Awards.  What does that mean exactly?  It means that the chefs and owners focus on sustainable seafood, free-range and grass-fed meat, they use organic food, they thrive on local and seasonal food, and even serve up tap water instead of bottles of water.  What it comes down to is that each Green Restaurant focuses on using sustainable food and making it awesome.

Now, it’s your chance to help pick your favorite Green Restaurant!  Just click here to go to the main landing page, then vote in the restaurant in your area that is your favorite by 10/15/13 by 5 pm PST.  We’ve listed all the restaurants in the semi-finals from across the country that are up for voting, with Connecticut and New York highlighted first.
