Low-Carbon Vegetarian Restaurant Chain Otarian Opens in New York

Otarian: The World's First Low-Carbon Global Chain Restaurant

Now that nutritional information is being added to menu items, what's next? Why, carbon emissions, of course. One eatery, Otarian, hopes to set the standard: The fast-casual restaurant, which opens its first New York location April 19, will be the first global chain to carbon footprint all its menu items according to PAS 2050, a set of greenhouse gas specifications recognized world over.

Otarian, which already has locations in London, offers a vegetarian menu that includes portobello mushroom burgers, roasted vegetable lasagna, and berry panna cotta — none of which are made with air-shipped ingredients. Restaurants are built using sustainable materials, and practice recycling and composting whenever possible.

The eatery's star-studded New York opening saw the likes of Vanessa Williams and Mary-Kate Olsen turn out to support greener eating. What do you think of the concept?

I know someone who's been there already and said the food was delicious. In the end, that's what matters. But, I do like the idea. Anything that helps the environment is great!
