Using sustainably culled seafood and organic produce, Prasino’s chefs nourish guests with a menu of gourmet American cuisine served inside an eco-friendly eatery. Warm up digestive muscles with lunchtime bites of lobster-stuffed avocado ($16) or wind sprints between your table and the hostess station. Shuffling inside the energy-efficient kitchen, cooks assemble main courses such as the sesame-tuna sandwich wedged in a baguette ($15), roasted beet salad splashed by orange-basil vinaigrette ($11), and short-rib tacos dolloped with queso fresco ($13). For breakfast, the pan borracho’s egg custard busies fork prongs or sharpened spoon handles with bits of spicy sausage, mushroom, and spinach ($10), and spatulas line plates with slabs of french toast, crepes, and pancakes made with your choice of buttermilk, multigrain, vegan, or gluten-free batter. Behind the café’s espresso, smoothie, and juice bar, staff members fill glasses with a medley of fruit- and vegetable-infused drinks, including microbrewed kombucha ($6-$6.50).
Prasino’s interior surrounds diners with environmentally conscious furnishings, including light fixtures sculpted from recycled corrugated cardboard boxes and floors infused with reclaimed wood. In addition, the kitchen staff purges pots and pans with eco-friendly suds and keenly monitors the usage of energy, water, and coal-fired chef hats.
