A socially conscious restaurant to check out
Yesterday, I was on Martha's Vineyard, and before we took the ferry home, we decided to get a bite to eat in Vineyard Haven. When on vacation, it's not always easy to find a restaurant that cooks seasonally with an emphasis on quality. Since it's off season, we figured we'd be out of luck and stuck eating at a fry shop. However, one restaurant caught our eye - Zephrus at the Mansion Hotel on Main Street.
Right away, we noticed that the menu featured seasonal ingredients that are grown, raised or caught on the Vineyard. We were treated with a bright open kitchen and able to watch the chefs cook everything to order. When the meal came it was incredibly fresh and delicious.
Now what meal would be complete without dessert? Well, Zephrus is special here too. They offer an Apple Pie (a la mode of course) and give all the proceeds from these pies to the Island Food Pantry.
Now if only every restaurant could be as socially conscious and delicious as Zephrus, we'd be on our way to a better planet. For that, I give Zephrus in Vineyard Haven a big What You Can Do thumbs up! Thanks guys.
If you happen to be on the Vineyard, check it out - Zephrus Restaurant and check back soon for more What You Can Do tips and heads up.
