One of the newest restaurant additions to Broad Ripple – Public Greens – sits right on the Monon Trail, making for easy access via car, bike, or foot (although I highly recommend by car until we hit at least double digit weather!). We went by the other day for lunch and we were not disappointed!
The chalkboard menu is pretty confusing, but we were greeted at the door right away with an explanation of how it works. Despite the name, it’s not all vegetarian. The menu offers plenty of protein options, along with tons of sides (sides! so many sides!) that feature locally grown produce. The food is beautiful, presented modern cafeteria style. You order at the counter and then carry a tray full of food to the seat-yourself dining.
All the proceeds (by all I mean 100%) of Public Greens goes to The Patachou Foundation, which feeds at-risk and food insecure children in the Indianapolis Public School system. So not only is the food delicious, it’s for a good cause.
So go taste for yourself. We’re going again for a lunch meeting on Wednesday! Yummmm.
