The Greenhouse Tavern Restaurant Review

: The Greenhouse Tavern opened as Ohio’s first certified-green restaurant. With chef Jonathon Sawyer at its helm, it boasts myriad earth-friendly features, most important among them being the farm-to-table fare. Sawyer’s food, regardless of its origin, is approachable and unfussy. The menu, printed on 100 percent, post-consumer recycled fiber, is sectioned into firsts (small tastes), seconds (larger appetizers), thirds (full dinners) and halfs (accompaniments to share). For firsts, try the foie gras, steamed clams or whole, grilled padron peppers with heirloom garlic and lemon zest. Seconds propose the crispy chicken wings. Follow with the 40-clove heirloom garlic roasted half-chicken. It’s wonderfully scented and rich with flavor. For dessert, try the donuts served chocolate and vanilla icing and sprinkles. The libations menu is well crafted, with everything from wines and beers to single malt scotches and specialty spirits.
