Green Spot Kitchen Offers Diners Fresh Food and Its Owners a Fresh Start

With a cheery bright-green awning out front, unfinished wood and colorfully painted walls, a pleasant and folksy playlist of artists like Jack Johnson and the Lumineers, and a premise based around healthful foods for all, Green Spot Kitchen is like the poster child for positive eateries.

The small restaurant offers a wide selection of gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, and ethical carnivorous options for those with dietary restrictions or a desire to eat whole, natural foods.

"We decided to open a place where people could unite," says owner Sasha Michael. "After trying to listen to what people wanted, we chose to do something to benefit the community. People want to eat healthier."

Free-range and grass-fed meats are used in items like tacos, which come with bison or chicken, crunchy shredded cabbage, fresh cilantro, and a side of house Phoenix salsa. (A vegan option combines chopped vegetables marinated in a citrusy ceviche sauce, served in fresh cabbage shells with a side of tzatziki, a blend of cilantro, cucumber, and yogurt.)

Sandwiches are all served on gluten-free sprouted grain bread with a side of pickled vegetables. Choose from the "steak which" (with grass-fed steak, Maui onions, agave mustard, provolone and mozzarella cheese, and oven-cured tomatoes with black pepper), the veggie sliders (with a house-made vegetable patty, oven-cured tomatoes, and lettuce served with chili lime aioli), and the "kale bison which" (with an eight-ounce kale burger, fresh kale, oven-cured tomatoes, and GSK sauce, a fresh take on Thousand Island).
