15) The Greenhouse Tavern, Cleveland

When owners Jonathon and Amelia Sawyer first opened The Greenhouse Tavern, they collaborated with the GRA to become the first green restaurant in Ohio. While the restaurant uses recyclables and highly developed methods of composting, sources alternate energy, and specializes in conservation practices, it also is involved with local Slow Food Convivium and the Cuyahoga Valley Conservation Society. By doing so, the chefs have crafted menus that are completely defined by the land of the local communities. Some house specialties include Ohio black walnut soup and duck zampone with braised winter kale, chestnut, apple, and sage.
