    "You’ll understand the accolade when you taste Shawn McClain's caramelized onion and rosemary focaccia with habanero Romesco and garlic butter. Finish with the toothsome vanilla-ginger panna cotta."

    This stylish spot changes hues with the seasons—colorful vegetables in the summer, root vegetables in the winter. But creative small plates of mostly organic vegetables show up all year round. Read more

    The mushroom pate and duck egg with smoked potato purée are delicious must-orders! The servers are super nice and friendly as well.

    Food blogger Julie O’Hara says that Green Zebra is a “cool, date–appropriate restaurant, yet the prices are reasonable for the high–end style of cooking.”

    Anything. The menu changes a lot so I can't recommend one thing. The triple chocolate dessert I had was heavenly without being heavy.

    Yum yum yum!! The mushroom Pate was superb, and so was the gnocchi. Stay away from the walnut soda... it's very strange

    Everything was fantastic. Wait staff were very attentive. Portions are small...so make sure you order enough.

    The music is killer. Neutral milk hotel, arcade fire, bright eyes, Peter born and John. Love it! Food was super great too!

    Really...it's not just for vegetarians! Chef Shawn McClain took a risk with this West Town location...and so glad he did-wonderful addition to the burgeoning restaurant scene in West Town

    The pink peppercorn thyme soda is tasty, but even better with a lug of gin dropped in.

    Skip the salsify risotto, it's a little bland. The frozen chocolate mousse is incredible
