Three-star certification from the Green Restaurant Association

Green Certification

Over twenty years ago we started with farm stands, introducing specialty produce and dairy products and have expanded to include farm raised poultry and meats which are noted on many of our seasonal menus. All of the fish and shellfish on our menus fall within the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch. We exclusively use fair-trade organic coffee at our events. We promote locally produced beers, wines and spirits.

We use 100% biodegradable products and our kitchens follow the standards set by green commercial operations, including a complete recycling and composting system. These efforts are why we are proud to hold, 5 years running, a three-star certification from the Green Restaurant Association.
