Green New American Vegetarian
2240 N Scottsdale Rd, Tempe, AZ
Open Mon – Sat 11 am – 9 pm
The name might say “vegetarian,” but don’t let that fool you: this relatively new branch of the original Green in Phoenix near downtown Tempe is 100% vegan! Those who need to maintain a gluten-free diet will be excited about the restaurant’s separate gluten-free menu. Green offers vegan takes on classic dishes such as fettuccine alfredo while loading each bowl with veggies. I had the Blonde Alfredo, and as a pasta enthusiast, I was impressed! It’s easy to see why this restaurant is popular. The food is reasonably priced for vegan fare, as my pasta bowl was nine dollars and plenty filling. The meal was served in less than ten minutes, and there is plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors to enjoy. Green can be crowded on the weekends, but your wait should be quick, and they also offer carry-out. Don’t forget to grab one of their many vegan desserts on your way out!
