Grendel’s has “gone green”, and by eating and drinking here, you can too! Here’s a guide to choosing things from our menu that reduce your carbon footprint:

• Buy Local: Try a local beer, and in-season produce. Spinach is green in more ways than one, since it is one of the veggies that grows almost all year in colder climates.
Best choices: Spinach Pie - Popeye Salad - Sandwiches (Local Bread from Iggy’s!) - Harpoon (beer or rootbeer!) - Cambridge Amber (Ultra-local!) - Many other New England beers!
• Eat Less Meat: We keep your options delicious and satisfying with veggie choices. Add tofu to boost your protein or try Super Grains like quinoa!
Best choices: Hummus - Nachos - Vegan Chili - Salads - Pasta Pesto (Green and Garlicky) - Peruvian Quinoa - Salvadoran Veg & Tofu - Polenta with Porcini - Portobello Reuben or Wrap
• Choose Sustainable Seafood: Many fish are over harvested or their capture has negative impacts on ocean ecosystem. We only offer ocean-friendly seafood at Grendel’s using the Monterey Bay Aquarium marine sustainability standards.
Best choices: Rainbow Trout is responsibly farmed - Haddock is locally caught without trawlers
• Eat and Drink Organic: We try hard to provide organics when possible while keeping our great prices. Even a portion of your food organic makes an impact on your health and the planet’s.
Best choices: Garden Burger (organic grains) - Our Quinoa is organic - Our coffee and teas are organic - Peak Organic IPA - Rain Organic Vodka
• Packaging and Waste reduction: Grendel’s makes all our food from fresh whole ingredients that come minimally packaged, and we compost all our food waste and recycle our packaging, saving an estimated 300 pounds per day (5500 tons a year!) of garbage going to landfills.
Best choices: All of it!
Small Changes Work - you don’t have do it all, and Grendel’s makes it easy for you.
