The ten o'clock news on abc last night had a segment on"environmentally sustainable" restaurants. The Green Chicago Restaurant Co-op just announced the initial group of restaurants. This co-ops mission is to group together to make sustainable options more feasible for local restaurants.
This is the list of restaurants currently in the co-op:
Bleeding Heart Bakery
Blind Faith Cafe
Dining Room at Kendall College
Roti Mediterranean Grill
Sopraffina Marketcaffe (5)
Trattoria No. 10
Uncommon Ground (2)
Amazingly one of the restaurants on the list, Sopraffina is in the lobby of my office building and Roti is just one block away. Both of these lunch places are super tasty, but I could never get out without spending at least $10. Knowing they support environmentally sustainable practices, I will be more willing to drop a little extra mullah!
I'm really excited about this news and think I need to visit the Frontera Grill and sample some Rick Bayless cuisine.
