This Thursday, April 22, Chef E. Michael Reidt and B&O American Brasserie will celebrate Earth Day at the restaurant.
“On any given day, I estimate that nearly half of the food we work with and serve at B&O American Brasserie is organic. I fully support the farm-to-table movement and I think it’s an important part of Earth Day,” said Chef Reidt. “Our commitment to organic and local food isn’t all we do to support a sustainable world. As a Kimpton Restaurant, we take part in their EarthCare program by using non-intrusive, high quality, eco-friendly products, ingredients and services.”
As part of its Earth Day festivities, B&O American Brasserie will hand out seed packets to dinner guests and will give a complimentary glass of champagne to dinner guests who wear sneakers and walk to the restaurant*. Additionally, B&O American Brasserie will educate guests and Facebook followers on how they can “go green” by posting tips throughout the restaurant and on their Facebook page. Guests at the restaurant will also get to play a role by submitting their green tip for a chance to win a gift certificate from the restaurant.
