Eating to Live on the Outside: Grezzo Restaurant

After a week off, Eating to Live on the Outside is back. And today I found Grezzo Restaurant in Boston and it’s got a lot of potential. Grezzo serves up a ton of veggies!

Having flipped through their online menu, here’s a bunch of things I’d consider ordering. Some are pretty wild and very unique, take a look:

Winter Melon Stew

  • Watermelon broth, Santa Claus melon, honeydew and lavender; interesting, I’ve never even heard of Santa Claus melon!
Caesar Salad
  • Creamy lemon and dulse vinaigrette, baby iceberg lettuce, red onion, eggplant bacon and garlic croutons; I’ll skip the croutons and since they don’t use animal products, I’m curious to see what eggplant bacon is.

House Salad

  • Baby lettuce, house-made cheese, croutons and green goddess vinaigrette; same deal with the croutons and don’t worry about the cheese, its nut cheese.

Big House Salad

  • Baby lettuce, marinated and pickled vegetables, raw red wine vinaigrette, herbed cheese and croutons; again with the croutons.

Baby Arugula Salad

  • Pickled asparagus, baby arugula grapefruit, marcona almonds and soaked currants; I love asparagus!

Marinated Shiitake Mushroom and European Cucumber Salad

  • Baby iceberg, fresh garbanzos, marinated shiitake mushrooms, cucumbers and orange Thai chili cream; looks good.
Land and Sea

Like I said, pretty exotic. But if I had to choose, I’d probably go with the Land and Sea or the Big House Salad. All those mushrooms intrigue me and a salad is always a great idea.

But what would you order? Check out Grezzo’s menu and let me know how you handle Eating to Live on the Outside. Just make a comment. If  not, I'll kick your butt—kidding.

Definately the Land and Sea! I love mushrooms!! I am brand new to Dr Fuhrman's style of eating but so far I am really enjoying it. Not to mention how hopeful I feel that I can live a healthy life "from this moment forward", that is not too late even though I have neglected my body for too long!

My new favorite restaurant is actually not far from Boston... Life Alive in Lowell, MA is delicious! I woul go there daily if I could.. SOOO delicious and I think Dr Fuhrman would approve!!

Oh my goodness, Santa Claus melon is my new favorite melon - very flavorful and sweet. It's in peak season right now, you should see if you can find some.

The winter melon stew sounds wonderful, as does the Ceasar salad - in my meat eating days I could not stand it, but I love the veggie versions. I've seen a recipe for eggplant bacon before - thinly sliced eggplant, marinated with namo shoyu/spices and dehydrated until crispy.

I would like to try it all! But if choosing several, I'd go with the Ceasar salad or the Mushroom and Cuke salad...
Good job, Gerry at finding all these eating places!

I've been there, and the restaurant is great. I wanted to mention that, because the food is raw vegan, the croutons won't be the typical kind of unhealthful croutons that are out there. I definitely recommend going there!

The cheesecake is amazing (all nut cheese, no sugar, completely vegan).
