Top 10 Restaurants to Celebrate Earth Day
Tomorrow is Earth Day; and if you do nothing else to celebrate, you can at least eat out at a restaurant that's trying to be green.
Here's my list of the top restaurants in the area for appreciating this little piece of real estate we call home.
If you have other suggestions, please post below. ...
* Dogwood Cafe in Hampden. Owners Bridget and Galen Sampson are known for their eco-consciousness and good deeds -- and the food is good.
* Elevation Burger in Harbor East. The all-natural, organic version of fast food, plus veggie burgers if you insist.
* Feast@4East in Mount Vernon. A very personal dining experience, emphasizing local ingredients. The owner/chef always includes vegan dishes.
* Great Sage in Clarksville. A global vegetarian menu, organic wines and beers, a handsome setting and events like a raw food dinner and animal advocates day.
* Grind-On Cafe in Hamilton. The owner is trying to leave a small carbon footprint and is encouraging others to do the same.
* One World Cafe in Tuscany/Canterbury. It specializes in an all-natural, chemical-free, low-fat cuisine.
* Rockfish in Annapolis. To get the full scoop, visit its Web site.
* Spoons in Federal Hill. This coffee cafe and roastery was the first certified-green restaurant in Maryland.
* Wild Orchid Cafe in Annapolis. The French/southern cuisine is based on local produce and humanely raised animals. Plus extra points for the name.
* Woodberry Kitchen in Woodberry/Hampden. My nomination for the most completely eco-friendly restaurant Baltimore has, down to the leftover containers made from sugar cane.
