America's First All-Organic Restaurant

Gusto OrganicsWhile it may be easy to eat organically at home, food sourcing becomes more difficult when eating out. While some restaurants feature "natural" meats or a few more "green" choices on the menu, it is hard and practically impossible sometimes to be reassured which foods are organic.

Until recently, it wasn’t difficult to find a restaurant that featured a handful of organic ingredients, but a menu that boasted 100 percent organic ingredients simply didn’t exist. Then January 9, 2008, rolled around and marked a day in dining history — when
Gusto Organics, the first USDA-approved, 100 percent organic restaurant opened its doors.
