Green Vegetarian moves Sunday
Green Vegetarian Cuisine opens in its new home at the Pearl Brewery Sunday.
The city's first 100 percent kosher vegetarian restaurant has moved from 1017 N. Flores St. Its second location is open at 10003 N.W. Military Hwy.
"We are really excited about our new venture at the Pearl," owner Mike Behrend says. "As you know, I have always had big dreams for Green."
And that dream has him facing "a much larger space," he says, where "we will be able to serve hundreds more meals each day."
Green's extensive menu includes dishes such as chicken-fried steak made with wheat meat, neatloaf and portabella steak as well as fried pickles, fried mushrooms, nachos, salads, burgers, quesadillas, enchiladas, stir-fries and sandwiches. New at the Pearl will be French press coffee.
According to a press release, "Green strives to be a sustainable restaurant with re-purposed restaurant equipment, the use of biodegradable packaging when possible, recycling, use of fair trade organic coffee, free range eggs and the use of their self-grown vegetables in many of their dishes."
Green offers breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; and 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday. It is closed Saturday.
