Modern, tranquil, and full of natural light, Organic Planet is a refreshing addition to the Greenwich Avenue restaurant scene. The eclectic, budget-friendly menu has something for every eater – from vegan to omnivore to gluten-free – and is a reflection of seasonal, local-organic ingredients and artisan foods carefully selected by Chef Gerry Herfurth and general manager Julien Jarry. Real food eaters will rejoice at discovering another hidden gem to mentally map as a “safe” place to eat when visiting or passing through Greenwich.
