Supporting local businesses with positive practices is a wonderful way to take a stand—and in this case, also a super way to have a delicious meal!
Passionfish, located in Pacific Grove, is one of the first restaurants in the area to be certified as a green business. The name says it all as the menu features local and sustainable seafood, meat and produce. Their ingredients are purchased at small farms and farmers’ markets daily.
A commitment to exciting flavors and sea-and earth-friendly practices shines through in each carefully crafted meal. From mouth-watering braised lamb to sea scallops topped with sinfully good tomato-truffle butter, Passionfish is a delightful experience. Vegetarians will enjoy a choice of salads that are far from boring.
The restaurant also boasts an extensive wine list with the added bonus of sustainable vineyards being marked as so on the list. The Passionfish website has an entire page dedicated to the restaurant’s wine “philosophy” and they explain that they want to “tempt you to try something new, unique and off the beaten path.”
We love that line of thinking and Passionfish’s loyalty to the cause of better, sustainable food sourcing!
