A vegetarian restaurant, a flower shop and an organic food store under one roof, Zelenyi Sad is a healthy lifestyle haven in the upbeat Petrogradskaya district of Saint Petersburg. The extensive menu is inspired by traditional Russian dishes transformed into their vegetarian and vegan versions. It’s your chance to try mushroom tartar ($6.5), Olivie salad with zucchini ($5.5) and tofu Caesar salad ($5.7). There are more filling options too, such as soy ravioli ($9.5) and perlotto with coconut milk ($7). Your morning will brighten up, with scrambled eggs and tofu, waffles and hot cereals.
Besides the unusual flavor combinations, the dishes at Green Garden will surely surprise you with their colors — bold, bright, almost neon. They might look unreal, but it’s all mother nature in the hands of a skilful and talented chef using exclusively natural ingredients to create artistic culinary masterpieces.
Stop by this eco-style loft with three dining halls, designer furniture, lots of greenery and a friendly vibe. The colors are calming – brick-red and forest green, various species of wood remind you of nature’s beauty, and one of the walls is entirely taken up by the green hedge, while others are tiled in white.
