What You'll Get


Before science was invented, going green used to mean chugging a two-liter of broccoli juice, then spinning around a baseball bat for 30 seconds. Exercise a healthier expression of blue and yellow's love child with today's Groupon to eco-friendly eatery Zest, located in Virginia Beach. Choose between the following options: for $15, you get $30 worth of dinner fare, or for $8, you get $16 worth of breakfast or lunch fare.

As a member of the Virginia Green Association, Zest adheres to its eco-friendly ethos by crafting its menu from locally sourced eggs, veggies, cheese, and seafood whenever possible. Dinner guests can guiltlessly wolf down the caprese pasta, which features roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, peppers, and pesto cream sauce ($16), or savor the crab-stuffed tilapia, showcasing scrumptious crab cakes crowned by a lemon beurre blanc sauce ($20). Lunchers can snack on crisp salads or a hearty sandwich, such as the Angus-beef Zest burger, infused with sharp cheddar and tasty ham ($8). Wash down your earth-loving eats with a glass of pinot grigio ($7) or a Flying Dog In-Heat Wheat beer ($3.50). As you dine, feel free to chat with the considerate staff about the restaurant's other green features, including floors made of bamboo, walls composed of recycled wood and discarded Mondale ’84 posters, and many biodegradable plastics.

Reviews

The Virginian-Pilot reviewed Zest. TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes, and six Yelpers agree, giving a 4.5-star average rating. Eighty-eight percent of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • We understand why the pork osso bucco ($22) is a menu favorite. The tender and deeply flavorful pork shank is served with a smoked mushroom and red wine demi-glace, garlic mashers and sauteed sugar snaps with tomatoes. – Judy Cowling, Virginian-Pilot
  • The food was great, the service friendly. Don't let the outside appearance fool you, although small and quaint, it is a "must try"! – tonia825, TripAdvisor
