I’ve passed the restaurant on a couple of occasions and, like others reading the menu with their reusable Trader Joe bags, I too was attracted to the farm-to-table concept and reasonably-priced cuisine. Everything at Greensquare Tavern is organic, made from scratch, and the meats are hormone-free. Their salmon is from Scotland and they have an amazingly tender and flavorful rotisserie chicken that cooks throughout the day. All dishes are made to order and their homemade gazpacho should be on your list of summer foods to enjoy.
I had a delicious vegetable medley of Brussels’ sprouts, cauliflower, and summer squash the owner purchased from the Union Square Farmer’s Market just a couple of days earlier, going along with the restaurant’s motto of: “Eat local. Drink global.” Each vegetable is roasted separately, tossed with an extra virgin Greek olive oil, and seasoned with the chef’s summer spice blend of thyme, oregano, tarragon, chervil, marjoram and chive.
They have a great Mediterranean hummus and spiced red pepper dip and a veggie burger that is gluten-free (without the bun). I was told the “Adult Lunch” of mac and cheese and Blackberry Smash cocktail are both a must-try. If you’re looking for a place where you can guarantee freshness and quality, check out Greensquare Tavern, just look for the scaffolding.
