Magnolia Restaurant - Burlington's Eco HQ (By Mitch)
I don't think that in my experience I have been to any restaurant more environmentally conscious. While looking over the menu, I noticed every item was local. The strawberry jam was homemade and had whole fruits in it. For being local and "grainy" by some people's descriptions it was insanely good, we all ended up ordering the same thing simply from one recommendation. But the food is only part of it, when I walked into the bathroom I noticed bins for compost and trash, toilets that require no water to flush, and lights that automatically turn on and off as you enter and exit. Magnolia is a certified green restaurant with a 3 star environmental rating, and that rating shows.
