Green Bar & Kitchen

fort lauderdale and miami are severely lacking in organic & vegan cuisine. yes, plenty of juice bars but no amazing vegan goodness. until this week. one of the owners of tap 42 has started a new venture over on 17th causeway called the green bar & kitchen. and let me tell you. this place is already amazing and it hasn’t been open for a week. raw foods (check). amazing smoothies and juices (check). cookbooks and superfoods market (check). organic wines (check). this place is amazing. the inside counters were done by ecosimplista over on oakland park blvd who specialize in “green” construction and renovations. awesome company owned and operated by a brother and sister team who rock!

so i met my best good friend over at green bar and we ordered a coconut grain bowl, the living lasagna and a gbk burger. wowza. tast buds are throwing a party up in here! i loved every bite. this restaurant is EXACTLY what south florida needed!
