Zilli Green Awarded

London’s vegetarian restaurant Zilli Green wins Best Restaurant in The Independent’s Green Awards.

Last week, UK newspaper The Independent named vegetarian eatery Zilli Green London's Best Restaurant in its 2010 Green Awards. High-profile UK chef Aldo Zilli opened the popular plant-based restaurant in February, which replaced his former omnivorous eatery Signor Zilli. Located in London's posh Soho neighborhood, Zilli Green makes a great effort to keep its environmental impact low by keeping the menu seasonal and vegan-friendly, and employing vegan chef Enzo di Marino to help craft creative, gourmet cuisine. The restaurant's meat-free switch was prompted by Zilli's experiences on the UK reality television show Celebrity Fit Club, where he experienced the life altering health benefits of eating a vegetarian diet first-hand.
