Congratulations to the Crow Bar & Kitchen in Corona del Mar for taking a green initiative. The Green Restaurant Assn. just certified Crow Bar, an upscale gastropub, as the first “green restaurant” in Orange County.
Not only does the Crow Bar boast a James Beard award-winning Executive Chef John Cuevas (formerly with the Montage Hotel & Resort in Laguna Beach), but it uses local and sustainable ingredients in its inventive pub foods. Other markers for making this certification include the banning of Styrofoam, to-go packages are biodegradeable and made from recycled materials, and its Natura water system is environmentally friendly.
Eco-conscious diners should know that the Crow Bar isn't the only green restaurant in OC, just the first one to get the National Restaurant Assn.'s certificate (an expensive process). Just a partial list of restaurants that are doing their part for the environment include eateries at the Camp in Costa Mesa: Mesa, Native Foods, Old Vine Café, Ecco, Taco Asylum, 118 Degrees, Valhalla Table; Avanti Café in Costa Mesa; Sandy's Beach Grill and Duke’s in Huntington Beach; Sandy’s and Veggie Grill’s two locations in Irvine; and as reported in the OC Register
