12-year old Radial Café, Atlanta’s only green certified restaurant and caterer, rolls out new spring menu, product upgrades and rolls back prices.
Frank Bragg, owner of award-winning Radial Café, announces the rollout of a new menu, with price roll backs on almost 30% of the items. “We know diners are looking for healthier choices, better values and best quality options,” Bragg says. “Despite rising commodity costs, I wanted to meet those needs by lowering prices and making even more quality improvements to our products.”
New lunch items include a Grilled Cobb Salad, an Arugula Salad and a new chicken salad recipe, using Coleman all-natural chicken, which is farmed in Gainesville, Georgia. It also includes a Tilapia ‘Po Boy, Grilled Salmon Bruschetta, Grilled Chicken with Mango Chutney BBQ Sauce, Bean Black Burger with a Vegan Chipotle Mayo and California Club Wrap. The Classic Burger was also upgraded to locally-farmed and all-natural Brasstown Beef out of Murphy, NC, which is just over the Georgia-North Carolina border.
New breakfast items include a cage-free egg Black Bean Eggs Benedict with Roasted Red Pepper Hollandaise, House-made Granola and Gluten-free Pancakes. Radial Café has offered the popular gluten-free pancakes for several months, and after high demand, made the decision to add them to the menu permanently.
Radial Café has been focused on fresh, local, all-natural and organic products before it was fashionable. Holding a 2-star certification from the Green Restaurant Association since 2007, Radial Café is committed to maintaining the smallest carbon footprint, while providing a great dining experience. In 2010, Radial Café diverted 21 tons of waste from the landfill and turned it into compost for Georgia farmers, for example. In addition to focusing on local, organic, all-natural products, water- and power-saving features, use of hybrid vehicle(s), low-impact chemical usage, compostable and recycled paper goods usage and no plastic usage are some of the hallmarks of a green certified restaurant.
