Green Zebra is a great place to eat vegetarian food in a more formal and sophisticated setting. Unlike other meat-free spots, Green Zebra doesn't just serve salads and plain vegetables you don’t want to eat, in a drab space. Instead, it's a real restaurant where you can sit down to a nice meal of beautifully plated dishes. Expect things like persimmon carpaccio with avocado mousse and arugula or squash risotto with zucchini and eggplant. It’s a great spot for a date or small group of friends for people who don’t mind not having meat.
