Otarian’s brand new NYC locations are open for business at 154 Bleecker Street and 947 8th Avenue in Manhattan. And you can save the planet at both—on your lunch hour.

How? Well, anything procured for the restaurants has the lowest possible impact on the environment. There is a strict, no air-freight policy and they buy everything as locally as possible. Used oil is turned into bio fuel. Packaging is either composted or recycled. Even employees are encouraged to walk or cycle to work. And the food is carbon footprinted so you can see how little CO2e your meal has created.

The Otarian Menufesto includes delicious and Earth-conscious items such as:

Roasted TomatO Soup
Beetroot O Feta Salad
Roasted Vegetable Couscous
VegO Burger
Vegetable Biryani
Choc O Mousse
Panna Cotta O Berry
Apple Crumble
