How happy are we to be included (two page spread, no less!) in the brand new guide to the world’s truly exemplary, organic, sustainable, and ethical restaurants, Truth, Love & Clean Cutlery (Abrams, 2018)? Thrilled!

As the world celebrates Earth Day/Week, we are reminded that at French Meadow every day is Earth Day. From our beginning three decades ago, we’ve made it our mission to engage in ethical practices that reflect our love for the earth and commitment to sustaining our planet’s resources.

This is why we say every day is “Earth Day” at French Meadow: With each meal we prepare with love for our customers, we celebrate the earth and our connection to it.
