Restaurant Review – Greens

Greens Restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant inside Fort Mason in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco – It has delicious, healthy food, a creative, seasonal menu, a fabulous view, great wine list, and they’re incredibly willing to adjust dishes and make substitutions. Which is one of my favorite things in a restaurant!

Greens

For my recent birthday my family was sweet enough to take me to Greens – even though I’m the only one who follows a plant-based diet – since it’s one of my favorite restaurants in the city (Millennium is another dream place to eat!)

{Yellow Finn Potato Griddle Cakes – Ohmylord these little “cakes” were amazing, the table shared an order and I could have easily eaten two orders myself!}

{Yellow Curry w/ Fall vegetables & coconut milk – My mom & I both ordered and LOVED this dish – Tasty & very filling}

Entree

{Angel Hair Pasta – This vegetarian version of a classic dish was well-loved by the table – Especially the corn!}

{Fire Roasted Poblano Chili – Sean is incredibly hard to feed at this type of restaurant and always manages to order the dish that everyone likes least. It’s like he does it on purpose… Anyway, this was interesting but a little bland.}

If you’re ever in the city and are in the mood for a great meal with a phenomenal view I highly recommend giving Greens Restaurant a try!

Oh San Francisco

This past weekend was both relaxing and luxurious, beginning perfectly with a little light shopping Friday afternoon before the boyfriend came back into San Francisco. 🙂

Saturday morning started with our favorite new ritual – a long walk to the Ferry Building for the Farmer’s Market to pick up fruits and veggies, and to eat our body weight in organic, local foods before slowly walking back to North Beach.

Including some tasty treats from my new obsession at the Farmers Market,  Black Jet Baking Company. Their vegan cranberry sticky buns are absolutely divine!

Oh, and picking up  new additions to our household. 🙂 Meet Tofu the pig!

Then we – ohmygosh I can hardly write the words – FINISHED DECORATING THE LIVING ROOM. Furniture assembled? Check. Art on the walls? Check. Furniture rearranged and carpet moved? Check. And you want to know what? It looks even better than I’d hoped.

The rest of Saturday included some writing, a quick trip to our corner pub for a glass of red wine, the grocery store and snacking while we fought over the remote.

Sunday was another gorgeous day and included another long walk, time time to the Marina to pick up a print that we ordered for the bedroom, a yummy brunch at Cafe Des Amis where I discovered my adorable friend Jael works, an impromptu stroll through Pier 39 to smell the AMAZING smells (candy, fudge, ice cream, waffle cones, chocolate, donuts…) and to see the Sea Lions that I can hear from my apartment in the mornings. Finally, what better way to end the weekend than cuddling on the couch watching the World’s Strongest Man competition?

Nope, no Superbowl for us. 🙂

How was your weekend? Did you watch the game?
