BEST GREEN RESTAURANT YOU COULD TAKE YOUR RICH AUNT TO
Uptown vegetarian stalwart Candle Café (1037 Third Ave) does all the responsible things: composting wasted food, comprehensive recycling, alternative electric power, recycled paper for menus, non-toxic everything. Of course, they're also vegetarian, local (as much as possible) and organic, three vital approaches to food that are as important for our own health as they are for the health of the planet. Seriously, the American food-industrial complex is just about the worst thing for the Earth we can think of; and please don't bring out the old saw of feeding a starving planet with vast monocrops: we have more food here than we know what to do with.
