BEST GREEN RESTAURANT YOU COULD TAKE YOUR HAUTE CUISINE FOOD SNOB TO

Dirt Candy

If Candle Café is your Chanel-wearing stepmother, Dirt Candy
(430 E. 9th St) would be your Westwood-wearing kooky aunt. They make no
outward claims to any kind of ideological position (though they are
very eco-minded, as a matter of course), but focus rather on how
interesting, even experimental, a kitchen can get with vegetables (aka,
dirt candy). Standouts include: jalapeño hush puppies with maple
butter, grits topped with pickled shiitake, and zucchini ginger cake.
The level of inventiveness (and risk taking) here is sure to impress
even the snootiest haute cuisine enthusiast.

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.

  • Check out my blog http://www.ecofriendlystudents.blogspot.com , I’m a teen trying to help the world and inform myself and others of the importance that being green can do .
    I think it’s awesome that people are trying to do the right thing in the green scene .
