“ My grandfather and great grandfather built a house next to a lake. This was the house where I learned to cook. I was seven years old when my grandmother told me to go into the woods to pick fresh dandelion greens for her salad. This was where my hands first smelled of fresh garlic. Where the scent of baking bread intoxicated my senses and the hand rolled pasta made my mouth water. This is where I took the tomato off the vine and placed it into the pot and where we picked the cherries from the tree for the cherry pies that made the neighbors swoon to my grandparents’ house. This is where I fell in love with the asparagus and the artichoke and the arugula. This is where I learned to celebrate food. This is why I cook for you.

And this is why I am GREEN.” ~ Chef Damon Brasch

Since the time of this writing --- at its birth on March 1, 2006 --- GREEN has held consistent residence at the forefront of the valley’s top choices for an eco-friendly dining experience. Featured in April 2008’s Phoenix New Times (http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2008-04-03/news/green-s-damon-brasch-wants-to-bring-vegan-comfort-food-to-the-masses/ ) GREEN has steadily turned even the most seasoned heads in the culinary world on their respective ears.

This eco-friendly, vegan-vegetarian restaurant sports an edgy, recycled décor, but don’t be fooled by the scenery --- the menu is laden with masterfully prepared comfort foods that celebrate vegetables. While its food may not contain meat or dairy, GREEN is a restaurant for everyone and also offers catering.

Chef Damon has created a menu that is sure to please any palate. The fare is NEW AMERICAN VEGETARIAN, created and influenced from many different cultures and cooking styles. Striving for perfection, Chef Damon uses only the freshest, high quality ingredients in his GREEN cuisine. His sweet treats are made with unrefined, unbleached organic ingredients. GREEN's "soon to be famous" VEGAN soft serve ice cream is prepared daily in his kitchen, so he can be sure it's always palate-perfect. The house made veggie burger is hand packed, cooked to order and served on locally baked, eggless buns. GREEN is a restaurant for everyone, not just vegetarians. Chef Damon hopes to open the hearts and minds of meat eaters everywhere.

In high demand as a consultant, Chef Damon is a successful entrepreneur with a proven track record and an unquenchable passion to invite people into the experience of compassionate cuisine. That passion was rewarded in a big way when Chef Damon received the 2009 Phoenix Business Journal’s Green Pioneer Award: (http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/stories/2009/02/02/daily15.html ) about which he is very reflective and grateful that the Green community is beginning to recognize the contribution that an eco-friendly diet makes to our environment. Other successes include two highly acclaimed holiday celebrations; GREEN’s first annual vegan ThanksLIVING celebration on Thanksgiving Day 2008, which was attended by two-hundred grateful diners and its July 4th, 2009 Vegan BBQ which served another hundred beyond that!

August of 2009 brought with it yet another prestigious honor --- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) named GREEN New American Vegetarian as the restaurant with the #1 Faux Chicken Sandwich in North America!!! GREEN actually beat out nine other restaurants for top honors, many of which are vegan landmarks that have long served as a personal inspiration to Chef Damon (http://blog.peta.org/archives/2009/08/top_10_faux-chi.php ) PETA spokesperson Nicole Matthews said, “Green New American Vegetarian is a great example of the growing number of restaurants that are meeting America’s hunger for healthy and humane cuisine.” However, the honor came as no surprise whatsoever to the GREEN faithful, who not too long ago watched a menu fan fave --- buffalo wings --- catapult its way onto Phoenix Magazine’s Valley’s 50 Best Dishes list, alongside a multitude of meaty counterparts (http://www.phoenixmag.com/dining/200901/the-valley-s-50-best-dishes/10/ )

While there are, with certainty, many more culinary milestones to conquer --- what’s next for Chef Damon and the GREEN experience? You guessed it! the GREEN concept recently expanded to a second location in the Phoenix area. And has further expanded to include a new, vegan bakery and confectionary cafe with an array of delicious coffees and creamy nut milks. So, who knows what’s next? Maybe there’s a GREEN heading to your neighborhood!

Chef Damon also has a few incredible campaigns in the works --- so stay tuned for some new and exciting shades of GREEN!
