Voting Opens for Hawaii’s Best Green Restaurant


The Nature Conservancy’s 2013 “Nature’s Plate Awards” celebrates the efforts of eateries that emphasize both sustainability and taste. Supporting these restaurants also helps support all the food producers: the farmers, ranchers and fishermen and women who work hard to minimize their impact on the environment.

The public is invited to vote on which sustainable, organic or farm-to-table restaurant will take home this year’s 2013 People’s Choice Nature’s Plate Award. The finalists for Hawaii are:

  • Greens & Vines
  • Hilo Bay Cafe
  • Hukilau Lanai Restaurant
  • Kohala Burger & Taco
  • Town Restaurant

Participants have until 5 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on October 15, 2013 to vote for your choice of the restaurant that serves the best food while working hard to protect the Earth.
