The newest kid on the vegetarian block is Otarian, a fast-food joint in Greenwich Village that opened Monday. These guys highlight carbon, rather than calorie, count. Fun/weird fact: I went up to get a napkin for my eats-like-a-two-year-old companion and was told that they are only allowed to give only one napkin per person. Great from an environmental standpoint, I guess, but can be a little difficult when you make a mess!
What do you think? Are they environmental geniuses? Hippies? Are they “saving the world one Otarian meal at a time,” as one counterperson said? Get over there and let us know when you leave a review!
(Pssst…Otarian Midtown opens Friday!)
