In the Area?? Go Green in PHX

There’s a stretch along 7th street — the one between McDowell and Thomas — that’s been experiencing a sort of renaissance when it comes to groovy food joints (think Rice Paper, America’s Taco Shop and Humble Pie) … the newest additions are Green and Nami (you may have already heard of Green, there’s an outpost on the Scottsdale/Tempe border). Last week, a few of us went to check out Green… and, well, let’s just say it’s pretty green. The space itself is small, but has a very earthy-chic vibe to it (translation, the seating areas were probably made from recycled items) and the menu is 100% vegan/vegetarian, so carnivores, unless you’re willing to try mock steak or chicken, this place may not be for you — but I say give it a shot. And Chef Damon Brasch would likely agree… his concept is simple: He wants to create delicious “comfort” food using fresh, vegan ingredients.

The result is pretty tasty.

Two of us opted for the green salad — hearts of palm, spanish green olives and tomatoes over fresh greens tossed in a garlic, lemon & extra virgin olive oil dressing — with a side of thyme fries for good measure, while our managing editor went for the balsamic picnic salad — toasted organic pecans, apples, strawberries and figs over fresh greensn tossed in a home made balsamic syrup. We were all pretty pleased with our lunches and for the price, you get a lot — always a bonus.

Don’t forget, after lunch stop by Nami… the organic, soy-based soft serve ice cream and coffee shop for a little somethin’ somethin’…
