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.
