Profiled by the Arizona Republic, the culinary artists at Fontana D’ Amore Organic Bistro follow eco-friendly practices and craft a smorgasbord of raw, vegan, vegetarian, and free-range meat entrees tailored to accommodate any dietary restrictions, all in an elegant, romantic space in The Borgata shopping center. A pantry stocked with alternative ingredients allows chefs to make any dish gluten-, dairy-, sugar-, or nut-free by replacing milk with almond milk, sugar with coconut crystals, or grains with pictures of lush wheat fields. Locally grown herbs spice up Holy Guacamole’s blend of avocado and vine ripened tomatoes spread on bread or fresh veggie sticks. Slices of whole-grain-sprouted bread clench the ultimate turkey burger’s free-range poultry patty drizzled with coconut sauce and bolstered by a heap of roasted potatoes. Chefs bury whole-grain Kamut or gluten-free noodles beneath a biodome of greenery, cherry tomatoes, and soaked almonds doused with coconut oil and sea salt in the vegan pasta bellissima.
The environmentally conscious eatery enlists pans made from natural earth materials and shirks chemicals in favor of safe natural cleansers and sanitizers to shine up the dining room. Fontana D’Amore extends their green-ness to the digital world by powering their website completely with solar energy instead of the coal-burning trains that drive the Internet.
